CRISTALDO, Rômulo. Development Management and Political Administration. Rev. Int. Investig. Cienc. Soc. [online]. 2021, vol.17, n.1, pp.143-157. ISSN 2226-4000.

This essay aims to discuss the contribution of the theory of political administration to the development management. The method engaged were the literature review and argumentative-deductive debate. The political administration movement is a theoretical proposal that emerged at the Business School of the Federal University of Bahia, Brazil. It is based upon the premise that the categories of management and administration could be used to analyze macro-structural aspects of capitalist societies. This work starts from the common ground that development is the apparent face, the phenomenon that represents the dynamics of capital. Considering the State is commissioned of the development agenda, which the main and most important objective is to assist the processes of capital appreciation and accumulation. The logic of development would conform to a set of management and institutional standards, resulting from the dispute of power and interests from the classes and class fractions. Consequently, it is organically rooted in capitalist sociability, representing its fractures and contradictions.
