The present work is an analysis of the concept of structural permanence and its practical utility. Within it are introduced the concepts of partial and total structural permanence of a sector equation, groups of sectors or subsystem subsets of equations with respect to the rest of the structure or a part of it. It is shown that this concept can serve to contribute to an explanation of the degree of dependence and interdependence between sectors of economic activity and national economies i.e. international economy. The concept of structural permanence is introduced as a method of analysis of structural dualisms, a phenomenon that is typical of underdeveloped countries and of critical importance to them. Author
