Abstract

This study is concerned with a case study of a famine in an economy where internal food markets are generally deemed to have been poorly integrated, ancien regime France. In the century or so before the Revolution, most historians agree that high transport costs and local vested interests inhibited grain shipments between the different regions of France, particularly in times of actual or threatened famine.
