Abstract

O artigo analisa a evolução, estratégia e posição das subsidiárias da American & Foreign Power (AMFORP) na Argentina e no Brazil desde sua chegada nesses mercados em meados da década de 1920, até sua nacionalização. São comparadas as performances e estratégias de entrada nos países, assim como as relações entre as empresas subsidiárias americanas e os governos dos dois países. Finalmente, o artigo analisa o papel do investimento direto estrangeiro no desenvolvimento do setor elétrico argentine e brasileiro. O estudo foi baseado nos Relatórios Anuais da American & Foreign Power (1923-1963) e de estatísticas oficiais e informes dos dois governos, como também dos Estados Unidos.
