Summary: A commission of referees reported to the government of Nueva Granada on the nation’s fiscal situation. The document presents a detailed account of the precarious fiscal situation in the country, providing an analysis of recent expenses of all government institutions and a review of fiscal deficits from previous years. The report includes policy recommendations.
Historical Notes: Tomás Cipriano de Mosquera’s government (1845-1849) initiated profound changes to Colombia’s fiscal policy. These changes were largely focused on implementing favorable conditions for free trade, such as decreasing import tariffs, while offering farmers some protections for internal commerce.
