This chapter describes the literature on the history of business in Brazil from the mid–nineteenth century to 1945. It explores the connections between the railways and Argentine governments up to the 1930s. It reviews the regulatory role of the state in relation to company activity, and argues that a unified ‘railway lobby’ able to defend their interests with total success never existed in Argentina. It shows that urbanisation, industrialisation, the transformation of corporate structures, and the expansion in higher education were among the most obvious effect of economic growth in Brazil.

Keywords:   Brazil, railways, Argentine governments, urbanisation, industrialisation, corporate structures, higher education
