Business History in Latin America

Liverpool University Press

This chapter analyses the regional studies and research in business history in Mexico since 1975. It addresses the origins and behaviour of individual entrepreneurs and the businesses that they controlled. The strategic role of trade and the development of credit mechanisms in Mexico are reported. This chapter illustrates that the advance of capital affects landholding. It also shows that the arrival of North American capital in Mexico expanded the opportunities for vigorous business groups like those in Monterrey and Chihuahua. Business history in Mexico has developed in a particularly lively fashion and on the basis of a perspective that demands the intensive use of local primary sources.

Keywords:   regional studies, business history, Mexico, individual entrepreneurs, trade, credit mechanisms, North American capital, landholding, Monterrey, Chihuahua
