The Impact of Globalization on Argentina and Chile: Business Enterprises and Entrepreneurship

by G. Jones and Andrea Lluch

Abstract

This book compares the effects of globalization on two Latin American countries, Argentina and Chile, over time. The chapters examine the impact of multinationals, the growth of business groups, and the conflicted relations between business and government. The book represents a unique comparative study of the complex and non-linear impact of globalization and the evolution of business systems in two neighboring but very different countries. The book draws on literatures and archives that have previously only been available in Spanish, while the concluding chapter makes use of Harvard Business School's new project known as “Creating Emerging Markets,” which features lengthy interviews with the most iconic business leaders in Argentina and Chile over recent decades.
