Abstract

Economic growth in pre-industrial Europe was driven by the expansion of the market. The "market" was a complex commercial structure made up of merchant firms, merchant associations, and organized markets. This paper provides an overview of the pre-industrial commercial structure, of how it functioned, and of how it evolved.
