  • Marcelo de Paiva Abreu



El objetivo de este documento es evaluar las políticas industriales que son importantes para América Latina en la actualidad. La primera sección introduce el tema, mientras que la segunda sección enumera definiciones pasadas de políticas industriales y su origen. La tercera sección se concentra en las experiencias de crecimiento nacionales que pueden servir como paradigmas. La sección IV es sobre las economías que son paradigmas de crecimiento y sus políticas. La sección V es sobre las restricciones multilaterales actuales en políticas industriales. La sexta sección explica la formación de las instituciones, macroeconomía y políticas industriales. La séptima sección analiza las alternativas de las políticas industriales. La conclusión en la sección VIII enumera recomendaciones sobre políticas que puedan mejorar el criterio para elegir ganadores donde una caída de mercado sería especialmente costosa.
