    ABSTRACT: 1 Protection and national champions in the creation of comparative advantage: the experience of the motor industry in Argentina, Spain and South Korea, 1945-87 During the Golden Age, Argentina, Spain and South Korea promoted the development of their automobile industries by restricting imports, licensing foreign investment, imposing a high degree of local contents for parts, and creating their own national champions. These strategic policies took advantage of economies of scale, achieving significant increases in output, and creating dynamic comparative advantages. Sudden liberalization or the high volatility of the macroeconomic environment jeopardized the industries. The gradual evolution of policy-making and the technological learning of the national champions resulted to be crucial for long-term success. The present research supports both List's defense of protection to infant industries in medium-large economies and his advocacy of national innovation systems.

    ABSTRACT: This paper uses time series techniques to estimate the points in time when Argentina started to lose ground with Australia, Canada and the OECD. Based on my estimates Argentina started to fall behind Australia in 1899 and behind Canada in 1896, earlier than the dates maintained by previous scholars.

    ABSTRACT: This paper attempts to investigate the main factors behind Argentina’s economic decline comparing its evolution to that of Australia and Canada. With this objective, we have constructed a reduced index of economic freedom which captures and summarises the main political macroeconomic outcomes covering the period 1875-2000, After using co integration and causality techniques, the results obtained show how the macroeconomic policies implemented during this very long period are to explain the relative evolution, in terms of GDP per head, of Argentina’s economy.
