Series: 刘仲敬讲座集, Book 20150502 · 金融史三讲. Price: $2.50 USD. Words: 200. Language: Chinese (simplified). Published: July 13, 2018. Categories: Nonfiction » History » World
摘录:国际金融网络这件事情不是从英格兰开始的,它是一个欧洲现象。大体上来讲,主要的创造是产生在意大利北部的。而意大利北部又可以分为东西两线。东线是威尼斯,威尼斯共和国的金融体系是极其稳定的,但是它的借贷方向,跟西欧的关系不是很密切。威尼斯主要是向东地中海方向发展,它留下的史料不多,是因为它的放贷往往是落到穆斯林国家手里面,像埃及或者拜占庭这些地方,它的大笔投资留在那儿,留在塞浦路斯或者叙利亚了。在西方,它卷入的程度不深。所以,它的金融体系如果按照文艺复兴时期意大利人的看法,实际上是最完善的,但是完善的影响力却不是很大。

摘录:英国国债制度,它会有很多方面,一般的考虑都是针对技术性的——国债的发行方式、财政制度以及英国本身的宪法结构之类的,但它还是有更重要的方面,这个更重要的地方或者是更关键的地方影响着国债体系本身的成败。这些关键的地方不是指的一个结构或者是一种制度或者是一种具体措施,而是指的一种小型的生态位的演变。这种情况下,你必须把视野放到整个西欧体系当中。在这个体系当中,具体的制度和措施不是最重要的,因为同样的制度和措施在不同的外部环境之下,会产生出非常不同的结果。这个体系是一个丛体,你得改变一下思路,像是生物学家考虑不同的套叠在一起的生态环境演变一样,才能够把握它的整体脉络。
