    Abstract

    En este trabajo se narra un intento relevante, siquiera desde el punto de vista doctrinal, de la historia institucional de la Hacienda: el ambicioso proyecto de reforma de la Contabilidad Pública llevado a cabo por las Cortes Generales y Extraordinarias instaladas en Cádiz durante la invasión napoleónica. En este capítulo poco conocido de la historia institucional de la Hacienda, destacan las ideas sobre la Cuenta y Razón expuestas por el Secretario del Despacho de Hacienda, José Canga Argüelles, a lo largo de su corto, pero prolífico paso por el ministerio, y, sobre todo, en su “Memoria sobre la Cuenta y Razón de España”, leída ante las Cortes Generales y Extraordinarias reunidas en Cádiz el día 29 de Junio de 1811. La Memoria contiene las líneas maestras de la futura reforma gaditana y de los posteriores proyectos de administración de la Tesorería. La filosofía de la Memoria será asumida por el texto constitucional y por la Comisión Especial de Hacienda, encargada de elaborar el proyecto de nueva planta de Tesorería, y se verá reflejada, finalmente, en el Decreto de 7 de agosto de 1813.
