Multinational corporations and the denationalization of Latin American industry: the case of the motor industry

Research output: Working paperDiscussion paper


A model of denationalization is proposed and described with specific regard to Argentina. The author concludes that, in practice, domination of the motor industry by international oligopolies has meant an outflow of foreign exchange in profit and royalty payments, the use of non-price forms of competition such as advertising, consumer credit and model changes and diversification, fragmentation of the market between large numbers of firms and low levels of capacity utilization, which have kept costs and prices high
