Item description for The Mother of All Trades: The Baltic Grain Trade in Amsterdam from the Late 16th to the Early 19th Century (Northern World, 3) by M. Van Tielhof...

In the early-modern period, the Dutch called the grain trade on the Baltic the "mother of all trades" as they considered it to be the basis of most of their trade and shipping and, indeed, the cornerstone of the Dutch economy. For a long time, the mass grain exports from the Baltic were dominated by the Dutch, and Amsterdam was the central entrepot from which the grain was distributed over the Dutch hinterland and the rest of Europe. This book aims to present a general history of the "mother of all trades" and particularly shows the fundamental importance of transaction costs, including the costs for transport, insurance and protection, the quality of the local services in Amsterdam, the influence of monetary and mercantile policies, and the efficiency of trade organization.
