  7. Abstract:
  8. Our country in no measure is considered as an industrial one, despite its chain of small, medium and large industries. The vague, general “developing” term might be the best term to assign to economic-industrial condition of our country. We have a fairly limited number of big industrial firms (BIF) which could continue operation without state’s supports in a world BIFs are considered as the key indices in industrial development. The question comes to mind with reading what came above is this study’s main question, “What went wrong?”. This study follows the historical approach to the question through a comprehensive case study. Historical case-study thus is our main research approach here. According to Freeman (1987) roots of some inefficiency might be found in founding institutions back to a century ago. This study thus scrutinizes the national industrialization trajectory from its main outset up to the Islamic Revolution with analyzing the ruling views as an integral part. What was the dominant industrial approach up to the revolution? What views and conceptions propelled the industrial trajectory over five decades? Have these views subject to change and evolution? Have the current industrial thoughts their roots in history?
