Recursos naturales y delimitación de fronteras en América Latina en la primera globalización: una aproximación desde la Guerra del Acre


  • Melisa Janet Luc



En este trabajo se busca integrar más variables al análisis histórico económico de América Latina, vinculando los procesos de independencia, la formación de los Estados y la determinación de sus fronteras con las posibilidades de desarrollo a finales de la primera globalización. Estos argumentos se han concretado en el estudio de un caso particular: la Guerra del Acre. En el mismo se pone de manifiesto que la disponibilidad de recursos naturales no fue exógena a las economías de los países participantes sino que respondieron a decisiones políticas e intereses económicos internos. Además, se ponen de manifiesto algunas de las diferencias políticas y económicas de Brasil y Bolivia en el siglo XIX y se vinculan con las diferentes posibilidades de desarrollo que tuvieron estos países.
