La crisis fiscal de Cartagena en la era de la independencia, 1808-1821

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


  • Meisel-Roca, Adolfo


La historia económica de Cartagena de Indias, se afectó mucho por las guerras que España libraba contra Inglaterra entre 1796 y 1807, por lo tanto la ciudad recibía grandes cantidades de ingresos fiscales que representaban entre 1801 y 1805 el 53.1% de los ingresos totales del virreinato de la Nueva Granada. Pero por los constantes gastos ya entre 1816 y 1821 Cartagena estaba arruinada, situación que se analiza en este documento.
