British mercantile houses--privately financed commercial
enterprises dealing in the import and export of goods--integrated
Argentine production into the world economy between 1810 and 1880.

Frequent changes of government, foreign and civil wars, and
blockades of the port of Buenos Aires provided merchants with
constant risks as well as opportunities. The limited capital and
simple organization of mercantile houses suited these risks and
opportunities. The author evaluates in detail business operations
and decision making and analyzes the relationship between business
practices and the Argentine economic and political environment. We
see a business institution from the inside: the evolution of
practices and procedures, the impact upon the larger economy
