Money Market.

England is a large importer of vegetable produce, and, therefore, her paying account is largely dependent on the season of the year. All tropical produce on the one hand, and all the produce of iceclosed northern countries on the other, are paid for in the autumn, and, perhaps, the greater part in the later autumn, and, therefore, the value of money always, other causes being taken out of the account, tends to rise from October onwards. … An augmenting trade is necessary to employ our gradually accumulating capital. If even for a year trade does not increase, a certain amount of saving clogs the market which it is difficult to employ. Now both Imports and Exports less than last year.

1866 1867
Imports (9 months) 174,168,898£. 161,963,750l.
Exports (10 months) 158,832,792l. 153,051,639l.

But if trade should revive, there is not yet any great accumulation of |179 capital to keep down the rate of interest. Much bullion in the Bank of England und Bank of France, aber their liabilities have also much amended. The private deposits of the Bank of England were: 1864: £12,666,764, 1867: £,18,507,007. In the Bank of France no increase of deposits, but of note circulation. 1864 nämlich £.28,891,656 und 1867: £45,693,632.
