Since the 1980s, the world economy has undergone a process of institutional change characterized by systematic financial deregulation and a wave of privatizations. The globalization of trade, finance and production has thus gathered momentum, side by side with the expansion of transnational and multinational enterprises, which have reached a tremendous financial weight, increasing international liquidity and intensifying the search for short-term profits (Scherer, 1999). With regard to Latin America, the fact that — unlike the situation in the past-trade and investment have ‘drifted apart’ and become increasingly independent of one another is also worthy of notice.
