Fine art print about Paris by Francois Courboin
Titled Stock-jobbing in the Palais Royal, Year VII (1799). Stock-jobbing is the practice of buying and selling speculative stocks, with little regard for the value of the capital of the company, simply to make a fast and easy profit. This practice was popularized in the 18th century by the English bourgeois.
