O crescimento da empresa industrial na economia cafeeira
This article analyses the conditions under which the growth of industrial enterprises occurred in Brazil before the 1930’s. Emphasis is placed on the specific nature of capitalist risk in industrial en-terprise, in an economy dominated by accumulation of coffee capital. Industrial competition and growth strategies of individual industrial firms are discussed together with a typology of industrial firms that emerged during this period. Finally, the origin and growth of a major Brazilian firm is presented as an illustration of what is called the large “industrial emporium”, a peculiar form of commercial capital engaged in industry.
