Les Monnaies De La Republique. Un Retour Sur Les Idees Monetaires De Jean Bodin
Bodin’s monetary writings are mainly centred on the relationship between currencies and sovereignty. He aims at designing a monetary system that would be forgery, debasement and degradation proof. Having explained his conception of money and false money, we expose the way Bodin seeks to constrain the exercise of monetary sovereignty: by submitting debasements not to law but to the contract, by setting up an ideal monetary system and finally by defining an international constraint. The monetary sovereign power, which is absolute in its principle, appears to be under constraint in its exercise.
