0.00 CHF

French railways during the third Republic made an original experiment of mixed economy illustrated by the relationship between the state and the great railway companies created in the mid-nineteenth century. François Caron retraces their history up until the creation of the SNCF in 1937. Fixed-income railway bonds played a major role in the history of French savings until that date. Caron also reflects on the economic aspects of the depression and the influence of companies’ commercial strategies on the French economy between 1870 and 1900. The financial crisis beginning in 1900 resulted in plummeting prices despite a strong stock market. A 1921 convention attempted to salvage the system, but was applied in an incoherent manner. The debate on the roles of the state and the market is still current.
