Following the volume 1816. Genesis of the Public Trust, which chronicled the birth and affirmation of a new politico-financial system between 1816-1848, we turn here to the tumultuous second half of the 19th century. In France, the financial system underwent several profound political transformations—the Revolution of 1848; the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-71 precipitating the fall of the Second Empire and inspiring the events of the Commune; a financial crisis (1882); a political crisis affecting the Third Republic (1892-1893); and a banking crisis in 1914—without being fundamentally undermined. This work analyzes the institutional, regulatory and financial—as well as the political, ideological and cultural—ways and means destined to forestall the crises and to assure the permanence of the public trust, keystone of depositors' confidence in the system of savings, itself backed since 1837 by the Bank for Official Deposits. A comparison to other European financial systems (Belgium and Italy), with their different institutions, agencies and practices, offers the opportunity to measure the discrepancies between the situations and allows us to understand that by facing crises they can be remedied, even prevented. All in all, a confirmation that a comprehensive financial history should ignore neither the political and institutional modes of construction of nation-states nor the social and economic practices of capital holders, small and large.
