Abstract

Barcelona has experienced two major phases of economic development. The first one linked to the Commercial Revolution of the Late Middle Ages and to Mediterranean trade, and the second related to the industrial revolution and Atlantic trade. In recent years, and following its tradition, Barcelona is now becoming a European gateway for Asian products thanks to globalisation.
