JIMENEZ MARCE, Rogelio. "Addressing the Needs of the Neighborhood": The Policies of the Civil Board of Directors of Jalapa to Prevent Famine and Food Speculation, 1914-1917. Secuencia [online]. 2014, n.89, pp.85-117. ISSN 2395-8464.

The aim of this paper is to show the activities that the Civil Board of Directors of Jalapa undertook to prevent food shortages between 1914 and 1917. In mid-1914, the municipal authorities received complaints about the shortage of food in the city as a result of which they authorized several measures to collect grains and prevent traders from raising prices. In order to reconcile interests, traders endeavored to create a Regulatory Fund, whose function would be to moderate the costs of grains and prevent them from being an object of speculation. Despite these good intentions, food shortages and abuse did not disappear, although shortages were not as dramatic as they were in other regions.

Palavras-chave : Mexican revolution; shortage; Jalapa in the revolution; Board of Civil Administration; Regulatory Fund; oral testimonies.
