On Monday, November 6, 6:30 to 8:00 PM the dialogue "New Amsterdam in the Dutch Atlantic" about trade and entrepreneurship in the 17th Century will take place at the Netherland Club in New York.
The dialogue is organised by the New Amsterdam History Center, the Netherland Club of New York, the Netherland-America Foundation and the cultural department of the Consulate General of the Netherlands in New York.
Historians Wim Klooster and Dennis J. Maika will exchange ideas and perceptions on such topics as the operation of both state-sponsored commercial monopolies and private entrepreneurship, the practical aspects of arranging trade, cooperation as well as competition between representatives of European empires, the impact of “sustained warfare” in the seventeenth century, and finally, the Dutch commercial legacy in both the Atlantic World and New York.
Followed by a Q&A.
