Da arte de conhecer as doenças: o diagnóstico da economia mineira de 1968 e o planejamento do desenvolvimento de Minas Gerais [The art of knowing diseases: the diagnosis of Minas Gerais economy of 1968 and planning of Minas Gerais development]
The issue of politically oriented regional development occupies an important place in the Economic History of Minas Gerais. Since the start of the 20th century, and throughout the most important transformative stages of the Brazilian economic system, overcoming underdevelopment and the peripheral position of the state has been a priority for the elites of Minas. We understand that it is essential to study the Diagnosis of the Economy of Minas, published in 1968, if the goal is to understand the vicissitudes of the state's economic development. This study emphasizes the meaning of this rich document, especially the long-lived institutional relationships and theoretical matrixes that lent it legitimacy and made it suited it to its time. The text is structured in three parts: i) description and analysis of the document; ii) brief background of developmentism in Minas; iii) presentation of four studies about the themes of the Diagnosis: transportation, electric energy, sugar industry and steel making.
