Abstract | Full Text

Este trabajo se ocupa del comercio exterior de México durante la Primera Guerra Mundial con el propósito de analizar los cambios que se produjeron en ese sector de la actividad económica durante estos años y de sopesar, hasta donde la evidencia disponible lo permite, hasta qué punto éstos fueron el resultado de la conflagración europea y hasta dónde deben atribuirse a la guerra civil que se libraba de manera simultánea en el interior del país. El estudio incluye un análisis en profundidad de los cambios en los principales rasgos del comercio con especial atención en los primeros dos años de la Gran Guerra, un examen de la redistribución geográfica de los intercambios como consecuencia del conflicto internacional y una evaluación del comportamiento de los precios y su efecto sobre los términos de intercambio de México.   Abstract   This paper deals with Mexico’s foreign trade during the First World War with the purpose of analyzing the changes that took place in this field of economic activity during these years and to assess, as far as the available evidence allows it, to what extent they were the result of the European conflict or should rather be attributed to the civil war that was being fought at the same time within the country. The study includes an in depth analysis of the changes in the main features of Mexico’s trade, with special attention to the first two years of the Great War; an examination of the geographic redistribution of this trade as a consequence of the international conflict; and an evaluation of the changes in prices and their effect upon Mexico’s terms of trade.
