21H.382 Capitalism in the Age of Revolution
Focuses on a period of Atlantic history when the monopoly trading corporation became one of the central vehicles for propagating novel instruments of credit, debt, and investment. Views the eighteenth century, beginning with the first major stock market crashes in 1719-1720, as a period of recurring financial crisis in which corporate power came into sustained and direct contact with emerging republican norms.
