QUIROZ, Enriqueta. BETWEEN HUMANISM AND MERCANTILISM: THE COMMON GOOD IN THE MEAT SUPPLY OF THE CITY OF MEXICO, 1708-1716. Cuadernos de Historia [online]. 2011, n.35, pp. 35-59. ISSN 0719-1243. doi: 10.4067/S0719-12432011000200002.
This article analyzes the political practices exercised by local government officials in Mexico City in the early eighteenth century, around the meat supply. The idea is to observe the common good, but settled not only in humanism doctrine, but also within a mercantilist policy, in which the economic interests of the Crown intended to come together as one body with those of his subjects.
