Summary: Florentino González, one of the members of the Colombian political movement that promoted more radical liberal policies, defends the fiscal changes that took place under General Tomás Cipriano de Mosquera’s presidency under which he was the Minister of Finances. Here González explains the impact that these changes had on the economy; for instance, with these reforms the state supported infrastructure to strengthen exports.
Historical Notes: During the mid-19th century the Conservative and Liberal political parties emerged in Nueva Granada. The Liberal party promoted the commercial use of land, and minimizing the role of state control of the market. The Liberal party opposed the power of the Catholic Church, including the privileges the church held concerning the accumulation of land and its influence over the formal education system. Under Mosquera’s government Catholic Church assets were expropriated and sold them to third parties to generate revenues for the state.
