TIJERINA, Walid. Developmentalism as a comparative-historical model: From Friedrich List to Bresser-Pereira. Brazil. J. Polit. Econ. [online]. 2020, vol.40, n.3, pp.484-492.  Epub June 10, 2020. ISSN 1809-4538.

The literature on New Developmentalism has been reframing the developmental state’s characteristics throughout the different historical conjunctures experienced within the international order. This paper argues that developmentalism has been reinventing itself as a branch of the comparative-historical method. To achieve this, the article assesses the evolution of developmentalism as a comparative-historical method which has been consolidated as a continuation of previous development models, such as List’s national system and Prebisch’s structuralism. Likewise, this paper will explore New Developmentalism and its explanatory power regarding recent industrial strategies in Latin America.
