This article examines the actions that millions of new-poor Argentine citizens took when confronted with impoverishment during the country’s economic crisis in 2002. It provides studies why some citizens perceived their hardship as a political problem, formed collective grievances, and manifested their resistance through protest, while others located the causes of hardship in their own deficiencies and tended to confine their responses to individual self-improvement strategies. It also finds that differences in personal biographies, experiences of poverty, and the changing spaces available to protest influenced individuals’ choice of action
