Vale do Ribeira
Abstract in Portuguese
Acompanhamos o evolver econômico das localidades de Iguape e Xiririca, no Vale do Ribeira, entre 1800 e 1880. Durante este período, a região especializou-se no cultivo do arroz, destinado principalmente para o Rio de Janeiro. Pudemos estabelecer ritmos distintos envolvendo a estrutura de produção e comercialização dos grãos, compondo um ciclo econômico completo. Também buscamos relacionar este movimento com o nível e a composição da riqueza dos ribeirenses. Dedicamos especial atenção aos bens de raiz, escravos e dívidas ativas, os três grupos com maior participação na composição da riqueza. Nossos resultados, além de evidenciarem a adoção do cultivo de arroz em todos os estratos econômicos, indicam mudanças significativas na hierarquia social à medida que o ciclo se desenrolava, especialmente entre proprietários de engenho de arroz e comerciantes

Abstract in English
This thesis looks at the economic evolution of the Iguape and Xiririca villages in the Vale of Ribeira region between 1800 and 1880. During this period, the region concentrated in the rice culture, notably to supply the Rio de Janeiro's market. In this study we identified different rhythms in the structures of production and marketing of this crop, defining a complete economic cycle. We also show that the evolution of the rice culture is correlated with the wealth levels of the local population. We looked particularly at assets, number of slaves, and credits, the main indicators of wealth in the region at that time. Our findings not only show that rice production evolved across all economic classes, but also suggests that changes in the local social hierarchy matched the economic cycle development, particularly in the case of rice mill owners and traders
