This chapter examines economic growth in Spanish America under the Hapsburg empire, as reflected by the development of mining, agriculture, and industry within the region. It shows how Spanish Americans responded to the varied and sometimes contradictory stimuli provided by Spain's needs and aspirations, and considers the economic consequences of other European nations' intrusion into the Spanish American economic system. The chapter also discusses the pressures generated spontaneously within Spanish America by the infrastructural changes in social and economic life, especially in the seventeenth century. Finally, it describes the development of the textile industry as well as the production of pottery, hardware, carts, furniture, and other items of popular consumption in central Mexico and the interior provinces of the Rio de la Plata.

Keywords:   Spanish America, economic growth, mining, agriculture, industry, Spain, textile industry, Mexico, economic life
