Galibina E.S.

This period was characterized by a fierce struggle between the conservative forces and the liberals who were the mouthpiece of the interests of the new bourgeoisie striving to do away with feudal barriers which hindered the development of the capitalist relations and whose aim was to come to power. The socio-economic situation in Ecuador during that period helps us to analyze the political and economical situation of the country in the future, the origin of «garcionism» as a socio-political event which made an accession of liberals to power a reality.
