Tres fases del crecimiento económico argentino

Abstract

Much of Argentina's decline in relative economic performance can be attributed to deleterious conditions for capital accumulation after 1913. In the first phase (pre–1913), the success of the Belle Epoque was due to spectacular rates of accumulation. In the second phase (1913–1930s), low domestic savings rates constrained the rate of capital accumulation. In the third phase (1930s–1950s) import–substitution policies were implemented and the relative price of key imported capital goods rose sharply. Retardation ensued: at first because of insufficient saving; later because price disincentives channeled funds away from investment activities which are the precursor of growth.
