Abstract

Entre el siglo XVI y el XVIII la esclavitud fue adquiriendo en el Imperio español una indudable importancia económica, tanto por el creciente peso de la mano de obra esclava en el Nuevo Mundo, como por la relevancia política, económica y administrativa de los sucesivos asientos. Sin embargo, la atención prestada a las cuestiones de la esclavitud y la trata en la literatura económica española fue decreciendo: éstas pasaron de tener un lugar en los textos escolásticos de los siglos XVI y principios del XVII, a convertirse en algo completamente marginal para los economistas ilustrados del Dieciocho. El propósito de este artículo es poner de manifiesto esta paradoja a través del análisis de los escasos textos de los teólogos escolásticos, arbitristas y economistas de la Ilustración que abordaron la esclavitud y la trata. La cuestión reviste interés, pues fueron tres centurias en las que los debates económicos en el ámbito del pensamiento español tuvieron un buen nivel, que se reflejó en la traducción a otras lenguas europeas de numerosas obras económicas españolas.
