¿Por qué se disipó el dinamismo industrial de Barranquilla?


  • Adolfo Meisel Roca


This study analyses the causes of Barranquilla's loss of dynamism in the postwar period. The central thesis is that during the twenties and thirties manufacturing growth there was not integrated with the local and regional economics but arose from its port facilities. The decline of the latter resulted in the loss of industrial dynamism. The paper also discusses the contribution made by national economic policy to these developments.
