Napoleonic War Finance in the Media

Princeton economist Paul Krugman discusses war finance during the Napoleonic Wars in his New York Times blog.

This short piece is based on an academic journal article published in the Journal of Economic History in 1991.  The article by professors Bordo and White contrasts French and British methods of financing warfare during the Napoleonic Wars.

This may be of some interest for students in HIST 423 French Revolution and Napoleon.
