La Argentina agro-exportadora y el desequilibrio regional 1880-1930
AbstractArgentina -almost 3 million km2- is linked economically, socially and politically to the rural production and trade. First, it was linked through livestock (jerky, fat, and leather), and by the end of nineteenth century through extensive agriculture, joined to rail expansion and massive immigration. Understanding the livestock, mercantile and agro industrial past in Argentina’s modern times is important for the diagnosis and comprehension of its domestic, international and long term situation. This research focuses on the 1880 period, when the leadership and the State were constituted, consolidating the agro-export model, until 1930, when the Argentinean institutional crisis was added to the effects of 1929 crash. Regional spaces, social networks and public policies are the chosen cores to diagnose and explain the uneven regionally Argentina.
