Enfermedad holandesa y exportaciones de banano en el Caribe colombiano, 1910-1950

In: ¿Por qué perdió la costa Caribe el siglo XX?


  • Meisel-Roca, Adolfo


La Costa Caribe ha tenido un pobre desarrollo económico en los últimos cien años, por esta razón se analiza la producción bananera para ver el comportamiento del banano como principal producto de exportación de esta región en el siglo XX. También se estudia el incremento de las exportaciones de café entre 1910 y 1950.
