A provincial (stock) exchange in Belgium: the case of Termonde
Like in many other European countries, Belgium had in the 19th century a lot of little stock exchanges. These institutions played an important role in the regional economy. They fulfilled in the first place a number of specific tasks regarding the trade in consumer goods such as seeds and grains. A closer investigation of these stock exchanges is not only important to have a better view on the local and regional networks but also to place them in a larger national perspective. By their specific structure these stock exchanges developed themselves differently compared to their counterparts in the important cities and left their marks on the stock exchange evolution in the 19th century.
