Monetary geography before the Industrial Revolution
AbstractIn this article, we study Europe's monetary geography on the eve of the Industrial Revolution. Our unit of analysis is the city and we explore inter-city linkages. Important findings include a considerable degree of integration and multilateralism with monetary centres having already emerged as vehicles for international settlements, before the Industrial Revolution.
