<Introduction>

Economic history is a field of scholarship which looks back historically on economic activity, one of a number of actions carried out by people, and weighs its evolution in relation to the future.

In fact, it would hardly be an overstatement to say that the state of the world following the Orbal Revolution was led by a series of economic dynamics. Dramatic progress in transit technology and improved productivity gave rise to a continental-scale flow of goods and people, which in turn resulted in a more explicit structure of interests making an appearance within governments among neighboring nations.

This book aims to trace history sequentially from prior to the Orbal Revolution, and while setting Ruan apart from the rest of Liberl Kingdom, proceed to analyze the developments of regional economics.

序文 経済史と分析の方法
  1. 《導力革命》以前のルーアン経済
    航海技術の発展による都市の変貌
    商業の発展と第3階級の台頭
  2. 貴族制の廃止と地方経済
    寡占体制の崩壊
<上巻序文>

経済史とは、人々の営みの1つである経済活動を歴史的に振り返り、その発達の過程と未来とについて考察する学問である。

《導力革命》以後の世界は、経済の力学によって導かれて来たと言っても過言ではない。輸送技術の飛躍的な進歩と生産性の向上は、大陸規模での物と人の流れを生み出し、諸国家間の利害はより明確な構図をともなって我々の前に姿を現すようになった。

本書は《導力革命》以前から順に歴史をたどり、リベール王国、分けてもこのルーアンを中心に、地域経済の発達について分析を進めていくものである。

Preface: The World After the Orbal Revolution
  1. Ruan and the Orbal Revolution
    • Advent of the Airship and the Maritime Industry
  2. The Hundred Days War and the Empire
    • The State of Commodity Distribution Before and After the War
    • Disparity, and the Shifting Empire
<Introduction>

The benefits in connection with the Orbal Revolution wrought mighty change in both production and transportation; the foundational elements of economic activity.

The introduction of orbal technology to the manual industry increased production without leading to a consolidation of the workforce and allowed outdated worker unions to commercialize and thereby erect a framework which supplied the market with a stable flow of diverse goods.

On the downside, the progress of transit technology, beginning with the emergence of airships, internationalized economic competition in one fell swoop and created a situation which prompted a fierce utilitarian rivalry among nations. Economic rivalries such as these can be found skulking in the milieu of nearly all erupting strife in this present age, regardless of boundaries.

<中巻序文>

《導力革命》による恩恵は、経済活動の基盤である生産と輸送の双方に大きな変化をもたらした。

手工業の導力化は、労働力の集約を経ずして生産性を向上させ、中世的な職人組合を企業化し、多種多様な製品を安定して市場へ供給する体制を築き上げていった。

一方、飛行船を始めとする輸送技術の進歩は、一挙に経済的競争を国際化させ、国家間に極めて実利的な対立を引き起こしかねない状況を作り出した。

逆に言えば、今日のどの地域のどんな紛争も、背景には経済的対立を見出すことができるのである。

Preface: The Hundred Days War and Ruan
  1. Ruan Economics After the War
    • The Appearance of New Entrepreneurs
    • Contrasting Tourism Resource Development Policy
  2. Challenges for the New Generation
    • Internationalization of Airship Routes and Ruan
<Introduction>

Though being in the midst of great advances with regards to transit technology following the Orbal Revolution, Ruan's economic epicenter remained as before, centered on the import and export of goods through its seaport, with the Erebonian Empire occupying a significant position as a strategic partner in trade.

Consequently, at the conclusion of the Hundred Days War, cooling relations with the Empire meant serious repercussions for this seaport city. This situation forced merchants to tread new ground and, as a result, pioneered enterprise which created domestic demand and developed tourism resources.

At present, though these measures and policies have finally begun to bear fruit, there still remain a number of issues which have yet to be resolved.

序文 《百日戦役》とルーアン
  1. 戦後のルーアン経済
    新たな企業家の登場
    観光資源開発政策の光と影
  2. 新世代に向けての課題
    定期船航路の国際化とルーアン
<下巻序文>

《導力革命》以後、輸送技術が大きく進歩する中にあっても、依然としてルーアン経済の中心は港湾での輸出入にあり、エレボニア帝国はその主な貿易相手国として重要な位置を占めていた。

したがって《百日戦役》後の帝国との関係の冷却化は、この港湾都市にとって重大な意味を持っていた。事態はルーアンの経済人を新たな道へと向かわせ、結果、観光資源の開発や国内需要の掘り起こしなどの事業が開拓されることとなった。現在、ようやく実を結びつつあるこれらの施策だが、一方で解決すべき課題を抱えているのも事実である。
