Historical Notes: Tomás Cipriano de Mosquera’s government (1845-1849, 1861-1864 and 1866-1867) enacted profound changes to Colombia’s fiscal policy. These changes were largely focused on implementing favorable conditions for free trade, such as decreasing import tariffs. These tariffs were the most important source of revenue for the state during the second part of the century. Junguito, Roberto 2010 Las finanzas públicas del siglo XIX.
