Friedrich List on Local Autonomy in His Contributions to the Debate About the Constitution of Württemberg in 1816/1817

Part of the The European Heritage in Economics and the Social Sciences book series (EHES, volume 13)


In Germany, the revival of municipal autonomy originated from Prussia. Among the reforms introduced after the crushing defeat of the Prussian army against Napoleon in 1806, the Städteordnung (statute for government of cities) of 1808, commonly associated with the name of Baron Karl vom Stein, was one of the measures enacted by the king to ensure political support and loyalty for the state.
