Abstract. This article explores different arguments regarding economic liberalism developed by the Socialist and Radical parties in Argentina from 1930 to 1943. The analysis of primary and secondary sources shows that both parties voiced strong discourses rooted in economic liberalism as part of their political and ideological attacks against the conservative national administrations of the Concordancia, which were expanding the process of state economic intervention facing the local impact of the Great Depression and World War II. On the other hand, those official discourses masked other positions that were gaining space within both parties, which reconciled state economic intervention and political liberalism--and in some cases, anti-liberalism. Some of these arguments were echoed within the Concordancia and reveal coincidences across party lines. This growing consensus about state economic intervention eventually found expression in anti-Fascist publications and institutions where conservatives, Socialists, and Radicals gathered by the late 1930s and early 1940s. Resume. Cet article explore differents arguments concernant le liberalisme economique developpe par les partis Radical et Socialiste en Argentine entre 1930 et 1943. L'analyse des sources primaires et secondaires demontre que les deux partis ont defendu publiquement et fermement des discours et des idees ancres dans le liberalisme economique classique. D'une part, cette defense faisait partie de leurs critiques politiques et ideologiques contre les gouvernements conservateurs de la Concordancia qui elargissaient l'intervention economique de l'Etat pour faire face localement a l'impact de la Grande Depression et de la Seconde Guerre mondiale. D'autre part, les discours officiels des deux partis masquaient d'autres positions de plus en plus rependues au sein du radicalisme et du socialisme, qui conciliaient l'intervention economique de l'Etat et le liberalisme politique--et, dans certains cas, l'antiliberalisme. Certains de ces arguments ont trouve echo au sein de la Concordancia et revelent l'existence des coincidences a travers les lignes des partis. Ce consensus grandissant entre les partis, concernant l'intervention economique de l'Etat, s'est finalement exprime par le biais des publications antifascistes et des institutions ou des conservateurs, des socialistes et des radicaux s'etaient rassembles pendant la periode analysee dans ce travail. Few periods in Argentine history have attracted more attention than the long decade between the military coups of 6 September 1930 and 4 June 1943. Its location between the last splendours of the liberal age and the rise of Peronism in 1943-46, along with the major political, ideological, economic, and social transformations undergone by Argentina during those years, has generated strong debates about the continuities and changes brought by this decade, its relationship to the emerging Peronist movement, and its relevance for explaining the future problems experienced by the country.
