Abstract

This thesis explores continuity and change in French political economy through the lens of the Continental System. Combining the history of economic thought, history of political economy, and economic history, the thesis argues that the commercial conflict between France and Britain during the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars had important antecedents and left behind a rich institutional legacy. More than a short-lived tool of war, the Continental System played a central role in the creation of modern French political economy.
