Dutch capital was Olinda[edit]

The Dutch capial in New Holland was Olinda. Let me get my history books out of the closet. --Wloveral (talk) 17:39, 9 May 2008 (UTC)

You are wrong. Olinda was the capital of Pernambuco under Portuguese rule. When the Dutch took over, they moved the capital to Recife, renamed Mauritsstad. Olinda, being the main seat of the Roman Catholic church in Pernambuco, was actually burned down by the Calvinist Hollanders. 161.24.19.112 (talk) 12:34, 26 March 2010 (UTC)

They didn't exactly moved the capital to Recife, the Dutch indeed founded Recife in the lowlands nearby Olinda in order to establish the capital. In its present form, the text implies Recife already existed before the invasion, which is not true. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 187.1.232.2 (talk) 12:20, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

Status of Pernambuco's sugar industry[edit]

User:Juniorpetjua‬‪ has raised issue with this article's statement "The sugar industry in Pernambuco never fully recovered from the Dutch occupation, being surpassed by sugar production in Bahia."

The article's statement is taken from Stuart Schwartz's book Tropical Babylons, which states on p. 170 that "The sugar economy of Pernambuco never fully recovered from the Dutch interlude and its effects. Bahia surpassed it and then remained the principal producer in Brazil until the nineteenth century."

I'll let Juniorpetjua elaborate on his criticisms here.OmgItsTheSmartGuy (talk) 18:22, 24 March 2017 (UTC)
