  • La economía de las Islas Malvinas —que al principio se basaba en la caza de focas y ballenas, y en el aprovisionamiento de embarcaciones— desde mediados de los años 1870 hasta 1980, dependía en gran medida de la cría de ovejas y de su metrópoli, el Reino Unido. Posteriormente se diversificó, y ahora obtiene ingresos del turismo, de la pesca comercial, de la industria de la pesca y de la agricultura. La moneda de las islas es la libra malvinense, que está respaldada por la libra esterlina.
