This chapter shows that Jews shared in the economic upswing of the 19th century, generally experiencing success even during what has been known as the Great Depression of 1873-96. Halfhearted attempts at altering the Jewish career profile had no effect: more than half chose commercial fields and remained self-employed. Their history gave them some experience in business, their families provided them with encouragement, financial support, and useful commercial networks, and contemporary antisemitism compelled them to fend for themselves.
