La economía del bajo San Jorge

Abstract

Luego de albergar una de las sociedades prehispánicas más prósperas de lo que actualmente es Colombia, el bajo San Jorge se convirtió en una de las subregiones colombianas con mayor incidencia de la pobreza. Como factor explicativo de este hecho se propone la alta concentración de la propiedad sobre la tierra. Esto ha llevado a un uso inadecuado del suelo, caracterizado por el predominio de actividades ganaderas a pesar de que la zona tiene un alto potencial agrícola. De esta manera, se configuró una sociedad que abandonó el legado Zenú, basado en un modelo de producción agrícola y el control hidraulico.
