The Mexican historian Enrique Sada continues his collaboration with the Royal European Academy of Doctors-Barcelona 1914 (RAED) with his work  “Antes de México: Auge y caída de la Administración Pública en la Nueva España” (Before Mexico: The Rise and Fall of Public Administration in the New Spain), which published the magazine of the RAED, Tribuna Plural, in its number 9, forthcoming. The publication continues the monograph devoted to the International Congress of Research, Innovation and Regional Development that the Academy held in Mexico with the Community of Institutions of Higher Education of La Laguna (Cieslag), the Autonomous University of Coahuila and the University Salle Laguna.

Sada explains how the “big tax burden that the Bourbons were paid to Mexican nationals up to five times more taxes per capita than British subjects in their own colonies”. That accelerated the independence and led a peculiar model of state after the reign of Ferdinand VII. To Sada, the impoverishment of the New Spain and the rise of American States led to an Anglo-Saxon dominance scenario that still prevails.
