SANCHEZ RANGEL, Óscar. Foreign property and mining in Mexico: the 1908 mining law draft. Estud. hist. mod. contemp. Mex [online]. 2018, n.55, pp.121-157. ISSN 0185-2620.

This article analyzes an aspect of the 1908 mining law draft, about the impediment for foreign companies to acquire mines in Mexico, for which they were obliged to be constituted under Mexican law. The proposal alarmed the businessmen, mainly composed of US Citizens and their representatives, who were leading a period of economic growth and modernization. The discussion was framed in a process characterized by the gradual increase of public intervention in the market, as a way to address difficulties associated with the Mexican insertion in the global economic flows.

Keywords : Mexican economy; mining legislation; foreign investment; commercial code; mining property.
