Mudança estrutural
Description Guinea-Bissau won its independence in 1973 and adopted the economic model of centralized planning based on the socialist ideal. However, the mid eighties decade marked the transition to market capitalism. The aim is to discuss the structural change from socialism to capitalism occurred in the country. To guide the discussion, they were reviewed the Veblenian institutionalist approach and foundations of economic structuralism. From the discussion made, it is argued that centrally coordination of different policies was an extremely difficult task. As for the capitalist period, it is concluded that the established policies have little tune with informal institutions rooted in Guinean economic system, and contribute little to national development.
A Guiné-Bissau conquistou a sua independência em 1973 e adotou o modelo econômico de planificação centralizado, baseado no ideal socialista. Porém, meado da década de oitenta marcou a transição para o capitalismo de mercado. O objetivo é discutir a mudança estrutural do socialismo para o capitalismo ocorrida no país, tendo como referencial teórico a corrente institucionalista vebleniana e os fundamentos do estruturalismo econômico. A partir da discussão feita, sustenta-se que, no período socialista, coordenar centralizadamente diferentes políticas visando o objetivo comum era uma tarefa difícil. Já para o período capitalista, conclui-se que as políticas criadas têm pouca sintonia com as instituições informais enraizadas no sistema econômico guineense, e pouco contribuem para o desenvolvimento nacional.
