This chapter investigates the state of economic and business history in Venezuela, considering questions such as the style of economic history that has been written, and the current trends in the subject. The role played by the state in the economy of the country since the petroleum boom of the 1920s has produced conditions for the development of economic and business history. This chapter also addresses the contribution of foreign scholars, and international and regional organisations, specifically their specialised agencies. It shows that research on business history is a productive approach in the understanding of the economic phenomenon.

Keywords:   economic history, business history, Venezuela, petroleum, international organisations, regional organisations
