Abstract

Con el cambio del modelo de producción de los últimos tiempos, las industrias pequeñas y medianas (PMI) y las microempresas son objeto de mayor análisis en la literatura económica, y los gobiernos les prestan más atención en sus estrategias de desarrollo. Sin embargo, para explicar su éxito se acude a las posiciones neoliberales y el estudio de las PMI se transforma en una argumentación en pro del libre mercado. Este artículo busca precisar los términos del análisis. Resalta la heterogeneidad de esas unidades productivas y establece los elementos comunes que permite tratarlas como un universo con cierto grado de coherencia no ajeno a los fenómenos socioeconómicos en conjunto. Además, compara diferentes tipos de PMI para entender mejor su comportamiento y sus potencialidades como factor para el desarrollo de la sociedad.
