This unique book compares the effects of globalization on two differing Latin American countries, Argentina and Chile, while utilizing both the historical lens of the late nineteenth century and the status of the modern economy to draw its conclusions.
Focusing on these two eras of globalization, leading business historians based in Europe, Latin America, and the United States examine the impact of multinationals, the growth of business groups, and the conflicted relations between business and government. Specifically, this book provides a compelling new historical perspective on current economic and political crises in Argentina and Chile. The contributors offer a pioneering comparative study of the complex and non-linear impact of globalization,
and the evolution of business systems in the two neighboring countries. They draw on literature which had previously only been available in Spanish, setting this book apart from its competitors.
The Impact of Globalization on Argentina and Chile will be a valuable resource for economic and business historians, Latin Americanists, and management scholars who research and teach international business and globalization.
