Sacomano Neto, M., do Carmo M. J., Ribeiro E. M. S., & da Cruz W. V. G. (2018).  Who controls the automotive industry? Owners, shareholders and financial institutions. Gerpisa colloquium.

Corporate control is a key topic to understand the dynamics of the contemporary economy and business strategies. Who controls the automotive industry? Recent studies suggest for that the corporate control of automotive firms is increasingly associated with banks and players from the financial system. It implies a significant increase of "financialization" and the role financial institutions in the dynamics and behavior of firms. This paper addresses the extent of influence of financial institutions in the corporate control of automotive companies. In order to understand this subject the paper aims to: 1) analyze the shareholder structure of the largest automobiles companies; 2) analyze the structure and the relations in the corporate ownership network; 3) Identify groups in the corporate ownership network and 4) analyze to what extent organizations depend on financial institutions. From the methodological point of view, the research is descriptive, exploratory, supported by qualitative, quantitative data and by social network analysis. The sample includes the 30th biggest (OICA classification) automakers and their shareholders. The corporate ownership network includes 30 automakers, 348 nodes and 654 connections (among companies, owners and financial institutions). lire la suite

1. Introduction
To think of history is to reflect on structuring models of a multidimensional analysis, sometimes opening a comprehensive outcome and enabling the emergence of a pattern or even patterns, with which we can illuminate a cohesive narrative,
The new economic and social history places cyclical oscillation at the forefront of its research, and rests on its duration: it has linked itself to the mirage, and also to the reality of cyclical rises and falls in prices. There is, now, alongside the narrative (or the traditional "recitative"), a recitation of the conjuncture that focuses on the past over long periods: ten, twenty or fifty years. (BRAUDEL, 1965, p.263)
A long duration, conceptualized by Fernand Braudel, french historian, can be applied in the present work in an effort to draw, from a specific object, the automotive battery, showing a path of technological correlations, oscillations and a material arrangement routed, nourishing itself in social arrangements, economic and with an unpredictable hint of the observed history. lire la suite
