This second session of the workshop “Financial institutions in the early modern Iberian monarchies” will be an opportunity to discuss the working papers of participants.

Did the economies of the early modern Iberian monarchies lag behind because of the lack of financial institutions? Was the economic backwardness of nineteenth-century Latin America and the Iberian metropoles the consequence of financial institutions ill-suited to economic growth? Were credit mechanisms accessible and affordable before the modern era? How did public finances and taxation affect private credit?

These and many other questions regarding finances and credit will be discussed in the two sessions of the workshop Financial institutions in the early modern Iberian monarchies, an event hosted by the European University Institute as part of the project Colonial legacies, invisible institutions, and financial markets in Latin America (and beyond) .

In this second session of the workshop, junior and senior scholars will discuss the working papers of the participants. Every early-stage researcher will present for 15-20 minutes the paper of a colleague. The floor will be open to the rest of the participants.
