¿Por qué fue España un país con alta protección industrial? : evidencias desde la protección efectiva 1870-1930


  • Tena Junguito, Antonio


Este trabajo enmarca la política comercial española en el contexto de la historia de la protección Europea. Su principal objetivo es poner en evidencia las contradicciones del debate historiográfico sobre el nivel y las causas de la protección industrial en la economía española. La nueva evidencia ofrecida por las tasas de protección efectiva en todos los sectores industriales y agrícolas de bienes de importación permite interpretar los tempranos inicios y la larga continuidad de la protección industrial española. Esta evidencia a poya la hipótesis del protagonismo del sector textil y su resistencia a abandonar los privilegios obtenidos como "industrias nacientes", como rasgo estructural del proteccionismo español. Las necesidades fiscales, las negociaciones comerciales internacionales, y sobre todo el ciclo económico explican mejor los cambios y las coyunturas de la historia de la protección en España.
