Banking as an emerging technology: Hoare's Bank, 1702 1742

  • TEMIN, PETER
  • VOTH, HANS-JOACHIM

London’s financial market underwent dramatic change after 1700. More limited than Paris or Amsterdam in the seventeenth century, London became the leading financial centre in Europe in the eighteenth century. There is an extensive and growing literature on the causes of this change, but comparatively little on the change itself. This article provides detailed information on the operation of the London financial market around 1700 by describing the operations of a nascent London bank.
