Abstract

La historiografía sobre San Andrés y Providencia, las principales islas colombianas en el Mar Caribe, ha argumentado que en el periodo que va desde fines del siglo XVIII hasta comienzos de la década de 1850 el archipiélago tuvo una economía mono exportadora de algodón. Luego y hasta los años 1950, el algodón fue reemplazado por las exportaciones de coco. En este ensayo argumentamos que la economía que había en las islas antes de la era del coco no estaba tan estrechamente especializada en la producción de algodón, y que se cultivaban una gran variedad de productos agrícolas. Fue sólo con el ascenso de las exportaciones del coco que San Andrés y Providencia vivieron un periodo de exportación de un único producto agrícola que hizo que su economía fuera vulnerable a la inestabilidad de ese sector. Para la discusión se utiliza un detallado informe sobre la economía del archipiélago encontrado recientemente por el autor en el Archivo General de la Nación.
