Is the high growth based on soybeans exports reaching an end for the Argentinean economic strategy?

Gabriel José Saban

Studenteropgave: Speciale


Believing itself to be the ‘granary of the world’, Argentina has always pursued its agricultural comparative advantage to enter in the world market as a supplier of raw materials. But in the case of soybeans, Argentina developed one of the biggest and the most efficient industries of the world. In this study, the history of this agro-industry will be developed with special attention to the role of the state and its influence on the creation of new sectors. The ket questions that guide this project are: Does the Argentinean strategy regarding the exports of soybeans qualify as successful Ricardian strategy? Can Argentina’s soybean industry avoid diminishing returns? Is Argentina’s soybean industry linked to and generating growth in other industries of the country?
