Historical Notes: Tomás Cipriano de Mosquera’s government (1845-1849, 1861-1864 and 1866-1867) enacted profound changes in 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.
