Abstract

A Portuguese translation of this paper, with the title "Controle Estrangeiro e Concentraçao na Indústria Brasileira", was published in IPEA’s journal Pesquisa e Planejamento Econômico, April 1987, pp. 161-189.

This working paper, in English, was part of the proceedings of the annual conference of economists, XIV Encontro Nacional de Economia (Brasilia, 1986), pp. 162-189.

IPEA was the government partner of the UN agency (ECLAC) that employed me at the time. I requested, and received, permission from ECLAC headquarters in Santiago, Chile, to publish the paper in IPEA’s journal.

ECLAC then informed me that they would also like to publish the paper, in English and in Spanish, in their flagship quarterly journal Cepal Review (Revista Cepal). IPEA, at the request of ECLAC, agreed to withhold publication until ECLAC had published it.

Unfortunately, the editor of Cepal Review then insisted that I substantially change or remove a paragraph that was critical of earlier work, by one of their consultants, that they had published in 1983. I was stubborn, and not prepared to remove or change the offensive paragraph. ECLAC had already accepted the paper, so it was never published in English. This is the draft that I typed on a dot matrix printer and presented to the meeting of economists in Brasilia. The printing is not easy to read, but should be of value to those who are unable to read Portuguese.
