CEPAL Review

Cepal Review is the leading journal for the study of economic and social development issues in Latin America and the Caribbean. Edited by the Economic Commission for Latin America, each issue focuses on economic trends, industrialization, income distribution, technological development and monetary systems, as well as the implementation of economic reform and transfer of technology. Written in English and Spanish (Revista de la Cepal), each tri-annual issue offers approximately 12 studies and essays undertaken by authoritative experts or gathered from conference proceedings.

Domestic technological development

A considerable proportion of the studies carried out on technical progress in Latin America has been based on the assumption —often implicit— that the technological behaviour of our societies as regards the introduction of new technical processes or products is almost entirely passive. What is more, economic theory too adopts this assumption in explaining the ways in which technical know-how is transferred from the developed to the developing countries.
