|Title||Actitudes sefardies del siglo XIX y pensamiento sansimoniano reflejados en las carreras de Emile e Isaac Pereire, fundadores del Credit Mobilier|
The brothers Emile and Isaac Pereire were born at the beginning of the 19th century in the Spanish and Portuguese Jewish community of Bordeaux, at a time when French Jews were moving towards full integration with society. They had been brought up in a Sephardi educational tradition reformed in the context of the Enlightenment. Consequently, they found their own views reflected in the Saint-Simonian movement and subscribed to its principles throughout their career, which they devoted to industrial progress on the basis of the prosperity of the small saver.
