FEDECÁMARAS: An expression of institutional change in Venezuela (1944)
The aim of this paper is to examine the birth of FEDECÁMARAS (1944) as an expression of an institutional change in Venezuela. FEDECÁMARAS creation was the result of a historical conflict between the state and the private sector between 1936 and 1944. This conflict was generated by two ways of interpreting economic development: one in which the role of the state should have been emphasized among other organisms, expressed by the governments of Eleazar López Contreras and Isaías Medina Angarita (1936-1945). They believed that the state should be central to organize the economic and social forces. And the other, a liberal vision, represented by the private sector, believed that the market should have been the engine of economic growth.
