Completed projects

Project:
The Evolution of Financial Markets in Pre-Industrial Europe: A Comparative Analysis 01.01.2008 to 31.12.2012
General project description
Capital markets exist to accumulate and distribute savings. Individuals will be unable to set up businesses of some scale if they cannot borrow funds, or form partnerships. Efficient financial markets are very valuable for an economy, but they do not emerge always and everywhere, as is all too clear from the strongly divergent development of capital markets in different parts of Europe before the Industrial Revolution.

This project develops a new analytical framework to explain the evolution of financial markets in pre-industrial Europe. The project will establish what kind of financial instruments and intermediaries entrepreneurs used to fund their businesses. It will reconstruct the volume of transactions, and the costs implied for savers and investors. A long-run systematic comparison of capital markets in different European cities will show how economic opportunities, migration, legal rules, public finance, and inequality shaped the funding strategies of entrepreneurs before the Industrial Revolution.

The project will demonstrate the benefits of the new approach by analyzing the evolution of financial markets in twelve towns in the Low Countries between 1500 and 1800. The remarkable history of the Netherlands offers a unique 'historical laboratory'. By the mid-sixteenth century unification under Burgundian and Habsburg rule had created capital market institutions on a quite similar basis. Yet, cities continued to develop new legal institutions and intermediary organizations, and economic opportunities continued to differ. What is more, the country's political split after 1580 created very different systems of public finance in North and South.

Beyond the analysis of financial markets in the Low Countries the project will build a European work group that will confront the experience of the Netherlands with the development of public and private markets across Europe. The final result will be a new understanding of the evolution of financial markets in Europe before the Industrial Revolution, to be published as a joint volume.
