After the completion of the privatization phase, DGFM was reorganized around the three enterprises mentioned and put under the control of the Ministry of Economics. The entire holding company (DGFM) eventually came to employ 2,235 persons, significantly fewer than the 7,418 workers it boasted in August 1991 (Pérez Esquivel, 2000, p. 67). This is not to say that no other arms production facilities exist in Argentina. As mentioned above, Lockheed took over the aviation plant in Córdoba. Its concession was recently renewed for five years, for which the state will pay the company US$230 million.

It should be noted that ISI is frequently presented as just a passing phase of the ‘infant’ industry, regardless of the fact that very few of the ‘infants’ have ever developed into mature ‘adult’ export industries. A third argument used in Latin America was Raymond Vernon’s (1968) ‘product-cycle theory’, whose local proponents argued that licensed production of arms would occur with semi-sophisticated standardized weaponry and mature technology-based industries. This did occur successfully with steel production, oil, petrochemicals, small arms, munitions, small planes and ships, but was a failure with sophisticated weapons platforms because of their rapid obsolescence and because military users tended to demand newer models to be able to compete with arms-racing neighbors.

3 The privatization of military business in the early 1990s Beginning in October 1990 and running through August 1997, the Argentine national government sold off, liquidated, or transferred to provincial or private hands almost the entire military business industrial and arms-producing sectors. It also privatized almost all other business assets held by the government. The reasons are to be found in the newly acquired liberal ideology3 along with the fiscal needs of the state to cover budget deficits and solve the external debt crisis.
