How did a wave of economic nationalism strengthen the wider nationalist sentiment growing in Europe? Explain.

The wave of economic nationalism strengthen the wider nationalist sentiment growing in Europe due to the Following Reason:-

• The movement of liberalism started with the goal to achieve freedom of markets and to abolish restrictions imposed on the movement of goods and capital.


• Napoleon introduced such administrative measures which created countless principalities. All these small principalities had their own system of currency, weights, and measures.

• New Commercial classes demanded unified economic territory to allow the movement of goods, people and capital without any hindrance.


• In 1834, Zollverein or customs union was established by the Prussia, and most of the German states joined this. According to this, tariff barriers were abolished, and the number of currencies was reduced from thirty to two.
