Les faux bilans de la Banque de France dans les années 1920


  • Bertrand BLANCHETON

    (Université Montesquieu Bordeaux IV)


Pendant plus d’un an, entre 1924 et 1925, la Banque de France présente au public de faux bilans hebdomadaires. La Banque minimise le chiffre de la circulation monétaire afin de préserver la confiance des opérateurs notamment sur le marché des changes. Cette contribution lève le voile sur les techniques de manipulations utilisées et analyse les conséquences de la révélation en avril 1925 de ce « scandale » sur la crédibilité de la Banque de France.
