Abstract

Le calcul des taux de profits accrus au capital investi dans les expéditions de traite est au centre du débat sur l'importance de cette dernière pour le développement de l'Angleterre et de la France au XVIIIe siècle. Cet article présente les trois méthodes qui ont été utilisées par les historiens pour calculer ces taux et leurs résultats. Il explique pourquoi l'examen des comptes d'expéditions est la méthode la plus prometteuse, puis étudie les difficultés qui lui sont spécifiques. Il espère ainsi, sinon résoudre le débat sur les profits de la traite, du moins donner un cadre dans lequel il sera possible de le résoudre.
