FERNANDEZ, Víctor Ramiro  e  ORMAECHEA, Emilia. Prebisch, the State, and the "Weakness of the Essential". Prob. Des [online]. 2018, vol.49, n.195, pp.77-99. ISSN 0301-7036.

Beginning with the recognition of the centrality of the State in Raúl Prebisch's oeuvre, while at the same time pointing out its limitations when it comes to conceptualizing the peripheral condition of Latin American states, this paper analyzes how the role of the State changed in the author's early body of work at the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC). Aiming to explain the shift and acknowledge the underpinnings of their peripheral condition, theoretical and analytical elements come to the fore in recognition of the conflicting dynamics that have historically acted on -and fed back into- Latin American states, shaping certain structures and forms of involvement that prevented them from running an industrialization strategy as the broader structuralist school, and Prebisch in particular, would have envisaged it.

Palavras-chave : Latin American states; Raúl Prebisch; economic thought; center-periphery; structuralism; capitalist accumulation.
