The Consulate, 1799-1804 : the Economy



In 1800 the BANK OF FRANCE was established. France's currency regained stability. Renewed war, the fact that large numbers of men were drafted into the army, placed a strain on the economy, as did the interruption of overseas trade due to war with England.
Under Napoleon, further CANALS were built, new Alpine passes (MT. GENEVRE 1804) opened.
