As known, one of the key concepts of A.O. Hirschman’s Strategy of Economic Development is that of linkages. The paper deals with some elements of the nature of linkages which have been neglected in the current literature. Looking at the potential importance –let’s say, the net production of the new enterprises – and the strongness of the linkages – the appearance probability for the new firms, all along the writings of A.O. Hirschman, we can identified the particular characteristic of this key elements of the author’s thought. As a mainresult of the analysis, the importance of some social occurrences, for the linkages development is highlighted. // En este trabajo exploramos algunas cuestiones del enfoque del desarrollo por medio de enlaces que han pasado inadvertidas. En La estrategia del desarrollo económico, Hirschman se pregunta qué queremos decir cuando hablamos del efecto de enlace que emana de una actividad a otra. El propio autor nos responde que podemos estar pensando en la importancia potencial del efecto de eslabonamiento en términos, digamos, de la producción neta de las nuevas industrias que pudieran aparecer, o podemos querer decir la fuerza del efecto, es decir, la probabilidad de que estas industrias surjan. En ese texto Hirschman realiza algunas observaciones de ambas. Así, tanto la importancia como la fuerza dependen de las características de la actividad motriz. Pero las dependencias de esta última van más alla de la actividad y de sus características. Nuestro objetivo a largo del trabajo es rastrear en gran parte de la obra de Hirschman las razones que imprimen la fuerza a los efectos de enlace. Esta búsqueda nos permitirá mostrar que el despliegue de los enlaces también depende de ciertos acontecimientos sociales.
