Abstract

Spanish Abstract: Algunos autores sostienen que durante el siglo XIX y principios del XX, el desarrollo del mercado interno colombiano fue escaso como consecuencia del atrasado sistema de transportes. Sin embargo, otros autores atribuyen el pobre desarrollo de las vías de comunicación precisamente a la ausencia de un mercado interno consolidado. El documento establece los términos de este debate inadvertido hasta ahora en la literatura sobre la primera mitad del siglo XX, incluso en la historiografía económica colonial, proponiendo la prueba de causalidad de Granger (procedimiento Toda-Yamamoto) como estrategia metodológica para contribuir empíricamente al debate.

English Abstract: Some authors argue that during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the development of the domestic market was limited as a result of the belated transportation systems. However, other authors attribute the poor development of communication paths, precisely by the absence of a consolidated domestic market. This paper sets out the terms of this unnoticed debate so far in the literature on the first half of the twentieth century, even in economic Colonial historiography, proposing the Granger Causality Test (Toda and Yamamoto procedure) as a methodological strategy to provide an empirical approach to the debate.)
