Government, public finance, and public debt framed the historical background for exceptional financial business opportunities for Henry Burnay as a private banker and a network with Baring Brothers, Comptoir National d'Escompte, Banque de Paris et des Pays Bas, Neuflize et Cie., Crédit Lyonnais, Société Générale, Deutsche Bank, Bank fur Handel& Industrie, Dresdner Bank, M. Jacob H. S. Stern and the Deutsche Effecten & Wechsel Bank from Frankfurt. Nineteenth-century financial markets and public debt emerge as the main players in the game.Credibility and honesty are important values for earning confidence and trust in international financial business, while bilateral-monopoly market situations required a lot of bargaining for joint profit maximization.
Corporate Finance is a fashionable field in schools of Economics throughout the World. Although the main epistemological break to identify its scientific character may be established in the decade of the 1950s, this paper demonstrates how much developed financial thought there was in Europe before the First World War. Thanks to considerable growth of international trade, corporations, and multinationals (i.e. rising globalization) during this phase of European civilization, Stock Exchanges flourished in all European countries. Philosophers, businessmen, professors, and lawyers disseminated their burgeoning erudition in financial knowledge, and several authors made large contributions in books devoted to legal features of human economic actions, and in textbooks devoted to political economy.

Decisions on rail tariffs were a challenge for nineteenth-century companies, managers and governments in Europe. The aim of this paper is to present theoretical discussions on the decisions for pricing rail services, by examining the influences coming from the French École des Ponts et Chaussées to Portugal, in the 1880s. If Antoine Cournot, Jules Dupuit and Charles Ellet are the most known pioneers and forerunners in disseminating marginal economics, Eugénio Rodrigues Severim de Azevedo’s book illustrates how reasoning on rail economics was spreading micro-economics before the Marshallian economics of the 1890s, even in small and peripheral European countries such as Portugal.
