Summary
For more than three hundred years, Mexico City's Baratillo marketplace was synonymous with crime, vice, and the most disreputable elements of urban society. Despite countless attempts to disband it, the Baratillo persevered, outlasting Spanish colonial rule and dozens of republican governments. In the twentieth century, transformed the neighbourhood of Tepito it into a global hub of black-market commerce. 'Black Market Capital' argues that the Baratillo and the broader shadow economy, which combined illicit, informal, and second-hand exchanges, have been central to the economy and the politics of Mexico City since the seventeenth century.
