RESUMEN: En el presente documento utilizamos las caricaturas económicas que aparecieron en el principal periódico colombiano entre 1928 y 1937 (El Tiempo), como una fuente primaria válida para el análisis de las tensiones que los fenómenos y situaciones económicas generaron en Colombia en una época tensa para la economía mundial. A través de la caricatura económica es posible ver la percepción de la opinión pública respecto a las políticas económicas y el temor e incertidumbre que estas causaban en el común de la gente. Este análisis hace parte de un análisis mayor en el que se utiliza la caricatura económica como una fuente para examinar la historia económica de Colombia.ABSTRACT: In this paper we use economic cartoons that were published in the leading Colombian newspaper -El Tiempo- between 1928 and 1937, as a valid primary source for analysis of the tensions and economic situations lived in Colombia during a tough worldwide economic period.
