Business History in Latin America

Raúl García Heras

Liverpool University Press

This chapter reviews the literature on the history of business in Argentina. The studies reviewed fall into four sections: foreign companies; state enterprises; local private firms; and interest groups and professional associations. It shows that Argentina represented a promising Latin American market. Within the Argentine economy, the state significantly plays a controversial role as manager of business enterprises. This chapter also presents some indication of the enormous tasks still pending to develop the historiography of business in Argentina. Some suggestions for future research and a brief note on some easily accessible sources for researchers who may be interested are then provided.

Keywords:   business, Argentina, foreign companies, state enterprises, local private firms, interest groups, professional associations, Argentine economy
