Abstract

In Brazil, the temporal excerpt related to the second period of the Empire and the First Republic was a scenario of several changes in economic sector. In particular, the coffee leadership from 1850 put the country in a process that culminated in a situation essentially connected to coffee production economy.The recent economic historiography that is based on a critical review of Dependency Theory and Cepal ideas, connects these dynamics to the transition for the capitalism system. In this perspective the current research project supported by the compiler work from Liberato de Castro, História Financeira e Orcamentária do Império no Brasil, and from Valentim F. Bouças inserted on the series Finanças do Brasil, in addition to other serial sources, aim to investigate the roll of external loans incurred by central and paulista governments during the period of coffee production predominance and therefore in the Brazil capitalism development.
