Resumo

This paper opposes to the institutional explanations for sudden reversals of expectations,
as was the case in the Argentinean crisis 2001/2002, an analysis revealing a crisis of the trust set
in national currency, so conceived as total social fact. Based on this multidimensional view
(economic, political and symbolic) of the money functions, we show that the systemic risk of the
public debt results from the illusions fostered by new classical theory on promises of future
income founding the political compromises sustaining the currency board monetary regime. The
resolution of this crisis has given room to a more distributive regime inspired in new-keynesian
theory but not to the elimination of this systemic risk. The conclusion points out in the present
context of world crisis the more general validity of this issue focusing the responsibility of neoquantitative
theory of money as a representation of economy performing collective action
