La acumulación de capital en la Argentina en la posguerra
[Postwar capital accumulation in Argentina]


  • Burachik, Gustavo


This essay suggest a theoretical framework for studying the accumulation process in an historical perspective. This framework comprises the expansion routes effectively or potentially open to big firm growth, available channels for funding investment expenditures and the barriers to corporate growth emerging in both the abovementioned spheres. Based on this framework the essay offers a review of the literature on problems for capital accumulation in Argentina. As a result, it is suggested, a new view of this topic emerges. Several similarities with other Latin American countries are marked.
