In Rosario’s industrial neighbourhood, households’ budgets reveal a wide variety of practices aiming at reificating savings and extending debt relations over the time.

Through their relationship to debt, they express a set of complex social relations. They are analysed as adaptations to new constraints, which arose from the dismantling of the fordist wage-labour nexus.
