The Jews in the "Regat" (Old Rumania) Economy 1859-1914
A Case of Minority Economics?
By Dafna Cellier

What was the economic structure of the Jewish minority in Rumania during its formation into the kingdom ("Regat") and in what way did the economic behavior of the Jews reflect what was defined in the study of "minority economics"? These and other questions that have not received enough attention underlie the research work presented in this book.
This pioneering study identifies and analyzes the nature of Jewish economic activity within the realities of "old Rumania" in a descriptive-historical and empirical way, and relies on factual-statistical sources, mostly primary ones, such as population censuses, tax surveys, press, correspondents, community monographs, and more.
The heroes of the Jewish story in Rumania during the period under investigation (1914-1859) were active in trading in all its branches, degrees and levels, from the great wholesalers and bankers to the tiny and casual hawkers; the craftsmen, who had to deal with both a discriminatory regime and against competition with the emerging industrial products; the big and tiny industrialists; the workers; the experts in the administrative and technical professions; writers; doctors in villages and private health institutions; wagoneers; servants; craftsmen and more.
This book makes a significant contribution to understanding the full range of Jewish life in Rumania at that time, as the economic sphere is closely linked to the interdependencies of social, political, cultural and religious life.
The analysis of the material with theoretical tools adds an important element to the study of the economic behavior of a Jewish minority and to the study of the minority economy in general.
