L'Etat républicain et la Banque de France après la Guerre franco-prussienne (1870-1897) : fonctions de la banque d'émission dans la société économique moderne

Abstract : This thesis analyses operations of credit and of issue of banknotes of the Bank of France between 1870 and 1897, and relations between the State and the financial institution. It supposes that the French-Prussian War (1870-1871) and the arrival of Joseph Magnin, republican (term 1881-1897), influenced the policy of the Bank under the Third Republic. After the war, and during a protracted recession in Europe, Germany and US achieved drastic economic growth and competition between countries escalated. The French government intervened the policies of the Bank of France by a republican assuming the post of the Governor of the Bank, and expanded credit facility. However, many executives of the Bank claimed the fact that it was still a private bank based on its independency. This conflict could be seen mainly in the discussion on expansion of agricultural credit and the base network of the Bank. The intervention of the State fulfilled an important role as well for the control of the confusion of the domestic market resulting from the collapse of the Comptoir d’escompte de Paris in 1889. Under the initiative of the Governor, Mr. Magnin, accumulation of gold was implemented and issuance of banknotes increased in the Bank. In 1897, expansion of credit facility was institutionalized in the discussion between the government and parliament on the renewal of the privilege to issue banknotes for the Bank, and after that, the next Governor Pallain further promoted accumulation of gold.
