VAN UYTVEN the Middle Ages. Antwerp's contribution in this sector included endorsement and discount which may have been known in the thirties but which only became general in the late sixteenth-century. About 1530 there was a clear reduction in the rate of interest for short term loans. This reached c. 20 per cent between 1420 and 1530 but fell by about half round 1560. e. beurs originated in Bruges. It is, however, true that the New Exchange, although then only in the second half of the sixteenth-century, began to specialize as a real financial exchange.

It is very difficult to delimit the sixteenth-century price revolution. Its beginning can be placed with almost equal justification in c. 1465, 1500, 1520 or 1550. The picture is clarified to a certain extent by ruling out devaluations by expressing prices in weights of silver. The beginning of the price rise then appears much later. Their lowest point then appears to have been c. 1495-1498 and a real price revolution can only be observed after 1514 (Graph IV). The high prices between 1465 and 1490 are thus put in their true perspective: as periods of high prices encouraged by failures in the harvest, war, devaluations and frequent coinages, which interrupted the secular falling trend.
