Las empresas transnacionales, pilares de la hegemonía estadounidense


  • Raúl Ornelas



Este ensayo aborda dos temas: el papel de las empresas transnacionales en la disputa por la hegemonía mundial y la competencia entre las principales empresas del mundo. La primera parte está dedicada a la discusión sobre la hegemonía, subrayando la importancia del conflicto social en la construcción de la hegemonía mundial. La segunda parte presenta los resultados de una investigación sobre la competencia entre grandes corporaciones, tomando como base los datos presentados en la revista Fortune. Se muestran cuáles son las empresas más importantes y cuál es la situaciónde la competencia en actividades eje de la economía mundial. El ensayo considera como idea central que la creciente internacionalización de la actividad empresarial, factor esencial de la fortaleza de las empresas estadounidenses, es clave en la explicación de las posiciones que ocupan tanto la economía de Estados Unidos como las grandes corporaciones que tienen su sede en ese país.
