Only a very few showed national bourgeois feelings, fearing competition, and few expressed wishes to restrain foreign-owned firms. 3). The experience of the Allende socialization program further reduced the general foreign presence, thus lowering Chilean fears of the foreign industrialist. Transnational ideologies prevailed among large manufacturing firms facing only modest industrial competition. Small businessmen supported the socialization both of the copper firms and of manufacturing by 1965, this being well past national bourgeois views, closer to general statism, and sharply at odds with the transnationalist views of the larger 25 Chilean firms .

In general, except for university students and professors, all groups identified communism as the worst foreign influence. Most groups also indicated by small margins that capitalism was a good, not a bad, foreign influence (even lower-class respondents agreed), but several groups showed pluralities that believed that foreign capitalism did more harm than good, including university students and professors, high government officials, industrial executives and white-collar commercial employees. Although the question was rather general, an incipient national bourgeois coalition was appearing in the early 1960s including about a fifth of industrial executives and a third of small businessmen and government 36 officials .

But its transnational ideology, and the still limited competition from foreign firms, allowed it to welcome a rise in direct private foreign investment. In sum, Chilean businessmen in large firms shifted from a transnational to a limited statist coalition on the issue of the foreign-owned copper firms from the 1950s to the early 1970s with relatively few divisions within the national business community. They shifted again, still united, to support their national privatization in the late 1970s.
