La Crisis Fiscal De Cartagena En La Era De La Independencia, 1808-1821


  • Adolfo Meisel Roca.


En los primeros años del siglo XIX, Cartagena de Indias era uno de los puertos fortificados más importantes del Caribe hispánico. Su economía estaba en clara expansión, así como su población, que era la segunda del Virreinato de la Nueva Granada. Cuando se creó el virreinato, a comienzos del siglo XVIII, incluso se consideró en hacerla la capital del mismo. La idea se descartó, pues se argumentó que podía ser vulnerable a los ataques navales. Sin embargo, en ese siglo hubo virreyes que nunca llegaron a Santa Fe y se establecieron en el puerto durante todo su mandato.
