"A thoroughly enjoyable economic history book with great relevance for the present debate on sovereign borrowing."--Diane Coyle, Enlightened Economist "Lending to the Borrower from Hell is a wonderful example of what becomes possible when one takes economic theory on a trip to the archive and actually reads the small print of each contract. It provides for the first time an economically sound explanation for Spain's ability to borrow in the sixteenth century that actually fits the facts. That is an outstanding achievement."--Regina Grafe, EH.Net "[T]his innovative monograph substantially enriches our understanding of Castile's government borrowing, as well as the nature of sovereign default in early modern Europe. And it will most certainly conquer a central place in the literature and future debates on public debt and finance from a historical perspective."--Benoit Marechaux, CritCom "Intensely researched."--Elvira Vilches, Renaissance Quarterly

Excellent Academic Work 20. Januar 2014
Von James Berlin - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Drs. Drelichman and Voth have long been academic wonders to me, ever since I discovered several of their working papers to be of great use to my undergraduate research thesis (found on JSTOR, the wonderful journal research site). The Habsburg Empire under Charles V was a complex system that seldom is understood as well as this work. The far reaching military capabilities of the Spanish Empire during the 16th century was financed and driven by a complex net of political and economic ties created by Emperor Charles V. Even those of us who are aware of the extent of Charles's debt-dealings with the German financiers (e.g. Welsers, Fuggers) and Italian financiers (e.g. Genovese) can appreciate the delicate situation created by the numerous wars and foreign pressures put on Charles. The pitfalls of the debt that would ultimately lead to the detriment of the economy for the Spanish empire by the time Charles's son Philip II took over in the mid-16th century. This book is a comprehensive review of the economy and debt during Charles's as well as Philip's reign, and I would highly recommend it to both the layman and academic for a close study of one of the most interesting reigns in the early modern Europe.

A solid answer to the Black Legend 27. Januar 2014
Von Anton Tomsinov - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
An outstanding book. Authors have united many years of research into a highly readable work that is full of new information on financial world of the Spanish Empire. Contractual network of Genoese bankers is presented as a multilayered resilient scheme of great legal and economic finesse which allowed to distribute risks in a more efficient way than pre-2008 modern schemes. This research (based among other things on 5000 manuscript pages) decisively crushes Black Legend of “Spain’s collapse because of authoritarian rule and financial folly”. Silly English-American theories on progressive democratic and stagnant authoritarian systems are also shown to have no relevance to what really happened. In fact Phillip’s debt-to-revenue remained almost the same, the debt was fully sustainable and borrowing was prudent. A little more luck on the battlefield and more compromise in relationship with Cortes would be enough to avert the Castilian decline
