The Minister of Finance According to Gaston Jèze: United States, England and Argentina

Invited by the University of Buenos Aires in 1923 for a series of conferences, Gaston Gèze explained the meaning of the reform to implement in Argentina whose financial system, with its obsolete and outdated characteristics inherited from the colonial period, contrasted, according to him, with the large and rich country it had become. In his second conference, Jèze discussed the functions of the Argentinian minister of Finance and described from the outset the weakness of his situation. He suggested turning to England, the country of “budgetary balance” and of a “strong minister of Finance” and to the United States, where Congress had just created the Budget Office, to find the appropriate examples to follow. In doing so, he revealed his “model”: the minister of Finance must first and foremost be the “minister of budgetary balance”.
