Eficacia política, ética y corrupción en el Gobierno de Guayaquil (1779-1790)

By Miguel Molina Martínez

Abstract

The government of Ramón García de León y Pizarro received praise from the Crown and, later on, from the ranks of historical research. However, some of his acts raise questions for their dubious ethics and morality. Threats, bribes, strong-arm tactics, favoritism, etc. were prevalent among his political practices and for his own benefit, as well as the benefit of his clan. This article analyses some of these irregular behaviors in the context of a debate on corruption in colonial bureaucracy.<br><br>El gobierno de Ramón García de León y Pizarro en Guayaquil mereció los elogios de la Corona y más tarde de la investigación histórica. Sin embargo, algunos de sus actos podrían ser cuestionados por su dudosa ética y moralidad. Las amenazas, sobornos, medidas de presión, favoritismos, etc. formaron parte de su práctica política en beneficio propio y el de su clan. Este artículo analiza algunos de esos comportamientos irregulares en el contexto del debate sobre la corrupción de la burocracia colonial
