Structuralism and development Economics in the european semi-Periphery
This article aims at presenting the basic features of the process of diffusion and assimilation of structuralist, developmentalist economic ideas in Portugal from the 1950’s to the 1980’s. This is a case study of a particular situation where ideas coming from the periphery of the world economy (Latin-American countries) were quite influential in a semi-periphery country. The article argues that Portuguese economists were more sensitive to the technical aspects related to economic planning and less concerned with the sociological and political dimension associated to the analysis of the social and economic conditions of living in underdeveloped countries.
