Although a great deal has now been written on the subject of the merchant trading companies involved in long distance trade (just think of the work on consortiums, cartels and share holding companies), the specific research done on the way pre-industrial manufacturing was financed is still lacking in detailed research on specific areas or sectors. To this end, our objectives are as follows. Firstly to analyse the way such activities were financed with reference to non-banking methods. Secondly to understand - including in the inter-sectorial context - the links between geography and type of finance in manufacturing sectors. Thirdly, to observe the consequences of a specific finance structure on manufacturing.

Abstract

Although a great deal has now been written on the subject of the merchant trading companies involved in long distance trade (just think of the work on consortiums, cartels and share holding companies), the specific research done on the way pre-industrial manufacturing was financed is still lacking in detailed research on specific areas or sectors. To this end, our objectives are as follows. Firstly to analyse the way such activities were financed with reference to non-banking methods. Secondly to understand - including in the inter-sectorial context - the links between geography and type of finance in manufacturing sectors. Thirdly, to observe the consequences of a specific finance structure on manufacturing.
