The Colombian political economy during the upsurge of the economic cycle of 1975-80 attempted to curtail repercussions that affected coffee export's income distribution particularly as adjusting mechanisms contemplated to equilibrate the whole economy price level. From the conventional economic perspective the paper attempts to study some factors that affected not only market stability price level but exchange and income distribution rate with unquestionable consequences upon non-traditional exports income distribution. Some criticism is elevated about political preeminence of coffee's interest group that deprived entrepreneurial capacity on some other sectors and considerations were made to justify encouragement of some other dynamic ventures able to improve general level of competitiveness.
