Las cooperativas en América Latina: visión histórica general y comentario de algunos países tipo


  • Jorge Coque Martínez

    (Universidad de Oviedo)


Latin American cooperativism is heterogeneous, like its roots and paths of development. During the XX century this situation has arisen starting from two basic co-operative types: financial co-operatives and agricultural ones. The article describes these processes, their endogenous and exogenous forces and the three levels of current development which are derived from them. These levels are illustrated through three typical countries: Argentina, Venezuela and Chile.
