The N.H.M. During the Culture System
The two political events, the introduction of the C.S. and the Belgian rebellion had important consequences for the N.H.M. The Belgian rebellion compelled the N.H.M. to stop by and by its orders from Gent’s cotton industry. The Belgian employees were dismissed. The problem for the N.H.M. now was to find other purveyors and preferably to create a Dutch cotton-industry. The introduction of the C.S. on the other side was most favorable to the N.H.M. because the government considered the N.H.M. as a creation of herself. The N.H.M. was more than willing to accept this position as the results of her efforts to engage in world trade were discouraging.
