Abstract


Danzig and Breslau: The centres of cashless payment transactions in Poland and Silesia in the 17th and 18th century.

Abstract

Trade with and within Central Eastern Europe (here, Polish and Sile- sian trade is being looked into) in the early modern period has been researched carefully both by Polish and German scholars. By contrast, financial relations resulting from commerce received much less attention. This article attempts to fill this gap by analyzing the way of using bills of exchange in Poland. Thus, the article presents the development of an international system of cashless payment transactions until the late 16th and early 17th century and answers the question, why Central Eastern Europe had not been involved in it much longer. Moreover, the paper offers an insight into the transactions in Danzig and Breslau between the 17th and 19th century. It also presents the reasons, why there were only two major exchange markets in this area. Finally, the article provides an explanation of the decline of their role in the region.
