Publicado: mar 26, 2024

El trabajo analiza los procesos de cambio estructural en 45 economías en desarrollo durante el periodo 1990-2018, distinguiendo tres tipos de actividades de servicios y diferenciando a las economías en procesos de desindustrialización prematura de las que aún se mantienen dentro de una senda industrializadora. La principal conclusión es que la terciarización realmente existente en las economías en desarrollo difícilmente puede actuar como un motor de crecimiento.
