Abstract

This article identifies some forms of commercial insertion and penetration in the southern Andean area, for which it examines the activities of four foreign merchants established in Tacna and Arica during the 1830s, 1840s and 1850s. Are shown the main flows of goods circulation through the Tacna-Arica region, the entrepreneurs who articulated them, the relationships between the different merchant scales, the criteria with which they operated, and the complementation and economic competition between different regions.
