This chapter, which explores the dynamics of pre-industrial economies in the Alps, examines probate inventories and dowry settlements, and family and business archives of the rural families in Savoy and Dauphiné. First, it examines dowries and probate inventories as indicators of increasing wealth, and then describes the role of merchant families and kinship networks in the expansion of commercial activity in the mountain regions.
