Abstract : The paper analyzes the pattern of Argentine economic development from the mid-nineteenth century until the present day. Initially, an overview of the Argentine developmental experience is given, emphasizing the three general phases of Argentine economic development agricultural export dominance, industrialization through import substitution, and the present state of cyclical economic crisis and domestic instability. Secondly, the phases of development are examined from an economic viewpoint to determine their cumulative effects upon the Argentine economic structure. Finally, a model of Argentine 'self-sufficiency' based on input-output analysis is presented as a point of departure for future developmental planning. (Author)
