Bread: The Song of Angry Men

This week, we start part 1 of our two part series on the French Revolution by talking about the precursor: the Flour War. We discuss the importance of grain prices, the origins of capitalism, and the complete mess that was known as the Ancien Régime. Finally, we discuss how taxes work in Massachusetts.

A special thanks to the Revolutions Podcast and Cynthia Bouton for providing the bulk of today’s source materials.
