Abstract:The object of this paper is not the question of a dominant or ruling class but rather the prior problem of what constitutes indigenous capital. It starts at the level of the social relations. After having identified the subject as indigenous private owners of capital, it analyses the economic role and political position of this group. Specifically, the authors first determine the extent of participation of indigenous owners in the local economy and the degree to which they may or may not have displaced foreign or former settler elements. Secondly, they investigate their dependence on or ties to the state. Finally, they consider the extent to which indigenous private capital has exerted on observable impact on policy from outside the state bureaucracy, in particular through making use of legislative bodies. The analysis focuses on the period of the mid-seventies. Notes.
