Alberto Feenstra studies provincial capital markets in the Dutch Golden Age. He analyses causes of and explanations for eighteenth-century price differences for provincial public debt within the Dutch Republic, by comparatively studying developments in Zeeland, Friesland and Groningen, with Holland serving as a point of reference. He focuses on three proximate factors that explain interest rate variations: supply and demand, risk and transaction costs.
