Traditia conservatoare a sectorului financiar german

1 Jan

Albrecht Durer: Jakob Fugger

Nu e vorba aici doar de traditia postbelica. In Civilizatie si Capitalism, Braudel a aratat ca zorile capitalismului financiar au aparinut Genovei, care erau un fel de Wall Street al Europei la 1500. Familia germana Fugger a devenit mai tarziu un jucator dominant in piata de titluri de stat, insa pana si aceasta avangarda a capitalismului financiar german a ramas rezervata fata de inovativitatea financiara a italienilor care deja prin 1600 operau cu ceea azi numim schimburi de dobanzi (interest rate swaps), folosind intrarile de argint din Spania pentru a face plati in aur catre trupele spaniole din Tarile de Jos.

Referinta clasica este Capital & finance in the age of the Renaissance;: A study of the Fuggers and their connections, de Richard Ehrenberg (1963). Ultima catre despre saga familiei Fugger este The Fuggers of Augsburg: Pursuing Wealth and Honor in Renaissance Germany, de Mark Häberlein.
