DELGADO, Gian Carlo. Ciencia, tecnología y competitividad del aparato tecnocientífico y productivo estadunidense. Norteamérica [online]. 2010, vol.5, n.2, pp.45-77. ISSN 1870-3550.
This article presents a historiographic review of the consolidation of the U.S. technical-industrial network, noting the emergence of a peculiar military Keynsianism that characterizes and heavily influences not only the technical and scientific sphere, but also production and even the political-economic system itself, with important implications even today. Among them is the erosion of the U.S.'s own civilian technical-industrial capabilities in the face of inter-capitalist competition, taking into account that both China and Russia are countries with clear State capitalist models. The text then presents a comparative analysis of the current state of U.S. technical-scientific capabilities, along with a reflection about its possible implications for the near future.
