Abstract

The document has two objectives: the first is conceptual-theoretical and the second is empiric. In relation to the first we do a summary of the principal theories that explain the territorial development and draw a distinction between the concepts of growth and development that are frequently misinterpreted. Using like referent the theoretical exposition and specially the findings of the neoclassical paradigm of growth, as part of the second objective we discuss the variability in the regional growth rates of the Mexican economy between 1993 and 2004, highlighting behaviors that are relevant and telling apart between winning regions and losers. In order to finish, we check the hypothesis of sigma regional divergence and some premises that need to be approached with precision.
