A mystery unveiled: The Mexican economy in the first fifty years after Independence (1821- 1870). An approach from foreign trade accounts

To use foreign trade statistics as a window to analyze some important aspects of Mexico’s economy and society during the half century after independence.

Project Description

I intend to use trade information in order to understand the features of the Mexican economy and the consumption patterns of Mexican society and the way in which they evolved in the initial period of its life as an independent country.
