Abstract

This paper analyses academic, political and corporate positions and debates regarding industry as a key element of national development and independence in Argentina over the last three decades of the nineteenth century. It is postulated that the economic liberalism of that period could be defined as a nationalist liberalism one. That leads to incorporate into the analysis the local reception of nationalist economic thought, especially the work of German economist Friedrich List.
