Abstract

A finales del siglo XVIII la mayor parte de los comerciantes madrileños eran inmigrantes. La existencia de redes de solidaridad definidas a partir de vínculos de parentesco y de paisanaje fueron muy importantes. Por una parte, porque facilitaron la integración de los inmigrantes en la sociedad urbana y su economía. Por otra, porque tales redes se definieron como la base sobre la que se desarrollaron las peculiares relaciones mantenidas entre Madrid y las regiones de donde procedían los comerciantes, que en algunas ocasiones no sólo incluyeron transferencias de capital humano, sino también con cierta frecuencia dinero en metálico, recibiendo a cambio parte de los beneficios obtenidos por el sector mercantil madrileño. /// In the late 18th century most of Madrid's traders were immigrants. The existence of solidarity systems defined through kinship relations and common origins was very important. This was partly because they facilitated the integration of immigrants in urban society and its economy, and also because such systems became defined as the foundations for development of the particular relations maintained between Madrid and the regions from which such traders came. These relations occasionally involved not only transfers of human resources, but also fairly often money, in cash, receiving part of the profits obtained by Madrid's merchant sector in exchange.
