This final chapter provides an overall conclusion to the findings of this volume. It reiterates that the combination of global economic growth and European military conflict opened up trade opportunities for neutral nations such as the United States and the Ottoman Empire. It uses the history of the British Levant Company to provide final insights into Mediterranean trade; the Tripolitanian War; the importance of the port of Livorno and American naval bases; and the necessity of American diplomats to facilitate and strengthen trade. It concludes by asserting that the political and economic circumstances surrounding Mediterranean trade permitted America to trade goods under their own flag and to re-enter Europe as an independent entity.

Keywords:   Levant Company, Ottoman Empire, Port of Livorno, Thomas Jefferson, American Naval Bases
