Abstract

In this article we analyse the impact of the tariff policy of the Spanish Ristoration on some of her main macro-economic variables. We find out the existence of clearly differentiated effects coming from the three tariff structures implemented along these years. In this sense, we point out that, during the 90’s, tariff protection impact was very costly for Spanish economic growth. Nevertheless, protection carried out from 1900 on returned Spanish economic development path next to that followed during the period 1870-1891.
