Money, states and empire: financial integration cycles and institutional change in Central Europe, 1400-1520
AbstractBy analysing a newly compiled database of exchange rates, this paper finds that Central European financial integration advanced in a cyclical fashion over the fifteenth century. The cycles were associated with changes in the money supply. Long-distance financial integration progressed in connection with the rise of the territorial state, facilitated by the synergy between princes and emperor.
