FARRIS, Massimiliano  and  MARTINEZ-ROYO, Oscar. The capitalism of the transnational holding companies in Chile’s forestry sector: consolidation of a territorial hegemony. Izquierdas (Santiago) [online]. 2019, n.45, pp.23-50. ISSN 0718-5049.

Abstract: The forestry sector has determined the construction of the territory in the center-southern area of Chile. In order to understand such construction, the concept of hegemony, as well as its territorial realm have been used as analytical tools. The methodology considers territorial hegemony according to three dimensions: historical-political, economic- business and symbolic-cultural. It concluded that a hegemonic territoriality has been consolidated, and it is characterized by monoculture that is historically based on political practices that have favoured an oligopoly of transnational holdings.

Keywords : territorial hegemony; industrial forestry plantations; monoculture; transnational holding companies; Biobío region; Chile.
