Networks of State and Capital: war, military institutions and entrepreneurs in the Netherlands (ca. 1670-1795)

Project Details


This projects focuses on the problems on cooperation between the State en entrepreneurs through mutual networks to obtain the needs for warcraft between the Republic and the Southern Netherlands.

Main question is whether the center of gravity of those networks were localised in 'the power' (the State) or in the 'market' (entrepreneurs) and how the power of the market was surpressed during the 18th century.
