This chapter examines the role of taxation and welfare in the making of the imperial inequalities of the Spanish imperial state. It uses the term ‘imperial state’ to transcend the historiographical gap between states and empires and examine the politics of economic governance across expanding and transforming political communities. It focuses in particular on the moral economy of taxation and welfare in legitimating the extraction and distribution of resources in ways that created and enforced inequalities.
