"The third book that upset one of my mental apple carts is Taxing Wars: The American Way of War Finance and the Decline of Democracy by Sarah Kreps (Oxford, ). Kreps shows that we used to pay for war by raising taxes, but now we add on debt and pass the bucks to future generations.5/5(2).
Thus, when France faced the possibility of a European war in the early s, it bore the largest public debt in the world, but also a strong experience regarding war finance. Moreover, many measures had already been planned or even implemented in order to fund the war, preserve the French payment system and avoid a dire financial crisis in.
Conditions in Vichy France under German occupation were very harsh, because the Germans stripped France of millions of workers (as prisoners of war and "voluntary" workers), and as well stripped much of the food supply, while demanding heavy cash payments.
It was a period of severe economic hardship under a totalitarian government. The Napoleonic Wars offer an experiment unique in the history of wartime finance.
While Britain was forced off the gold standard and endured a sustained inflation, France remained on a bimetallic standard for the war's duration.
For wars of comparable length and intensity in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, Napoleonic war finance stands out. France - France - Finance: Although the French financial sector employed less than 13 percent of the labour force in the early 21st century, it accounted for roughly one-third of the country’s total GDP.
Home to some of Europe’s largest banks and its second largest stock exchange, France is a key player in the continent’s financial markets.
Since, economically, war is waste, and it wastes existing — not future — manpower, capital goods, and raw materials, it is clear that the real cost of waging war is borne by the living who are deprived of things that in the absence of war could be produced and consumed in ordinary peacetime life.
No amount of fiscal hocus pocus can change that reality. A Concise History of France by Roger Price: Part of the Cambridge Concise Histories series, (and so linked to another book on this list), this text is a middle length run through of a fascinating but at times complicated history.
The third edition has an extra chapter on very modern France. The Cambridge Illustrated History of France by Emmanuel Le Roy Ladurie and Colin Jones: This is a.
The Political Economy of War Finance Abstract What explains the variation in how states pay for war. Leaders must choose between four primary means of war finance: taxation, domestic debt, external extraction, and printing.
Each alternative has different political and economic costs and benefits. Charles de Gaulle (–): A military commander who argued for mobile warfare when France turned instead to the Maginot Line, de Gaulle became the leader of the Free French forces during the Second World War and then Prime Minister of the liberated country.
After retiring he came back to politics in the late 50s to found the French Fifth. Others again want war from a mystic hatred of revolutionary France; others finally from a feeling of rancour.
These last are the people who heap up pretexts for war. Coming to actual facts, these feelings take concrete form as follows: The country squires represented in the Reichstag by the Conservative party want at all costs to escape the.
A book about France’s defeat in World War II has taken on a curious resonance as the country gazes across the border at Germany and asks why it has weathered the pandemic better.

A Hero of France broke my heart. Never before have I been so fully let down by a (used-to-be) favorite author. Night Soldiers blew me away as probably the most elegant, dark, subtle, historically detailed, and intellectual "spy" novel I'd ever encountered (I don't even like to describe it as a "spy" thriller because Night Soldiers is not genre fiction, but absolutely brilliant noir-historical /5().
