El remedio de estas angustias económicas parecía ser sólo el establecimiento de nuevos impuestos. “En ese ambiente de penuria, y como contribución para aminorarla, nació el Papel Sellado”. los angeles evolución de este impuesto, que empezó por ser un sistema de validación documental, refleja los angeles política economic de Felipe IV tanto para España como en América. Así, el libro nos muestra un perfil dejado en l. a. sombra de l. a. dinámica que en el siglo XVII instituyó parte significativa de nuestra historia.
