RECHE, Federico Hernán. Import substitution industrialization (ISI): uses and senses of a polysemic expression. Folia [online]. 2019, n.35, pp.27-50. ISSN 0325-8238.

What is ISI? The diversity of possible answers does not only reflect historiographic dissent or relative to the economic theory. The expression import substitution industrialization - ISI - has a markedly polysemic character that has been ignored by social research; and that, not properly warned, may have hindered and confused relevant discussions in the field of Argentine economic history. This paper presents, from a review of the literature, the multiplicity of uses and meanings with which the expression Industrialization by import substitution is used in Argentine historiography. According to our main argument ISI can refer, in effect, to three different phenomena: an economic practice, a historical period and a development strategy.

Palabras clave : Import substitution industrialization; Economic History; Industrialization in Argentina; CEPAL.
