Crédit Lyonnais’s branches in Lille and Roubaix: [(deposits- credits) / credits] ratio, 1883–1913. 39 40 Convergence and Divergence of National Financial Systems In Paris, the Banque de France started to worry about that situation, and especially about the ‘ardour’ of the Roubaix manufacturers, about their ‘adventurous and entrepreneurial spirit’ and they deplored that ‘the heads of the financial societies tended to use their employees’ signatures with certain flippancy’. But one had to acknowledge rapidly that the crisis of its profits drove the Banque de France to impotence: it would be ‘undoubtedly very tricky’ to attempt to react against these local habits; and, unable ‘to change this trend’ or ‘to limit the extension’ of certain abuses, the Banque could not but adapt to the local rules.
