Napoleon appointed the author "commissaire-general" of commercial relations with the United States, where Beaujour spent a decade. While he was contemptuous of Jeffersonian democracy, he recognized the rapidly growing commercial might of the United States and realized that eventually it would overshadow the power of Europe, with the balance of world trade shifting to the western hemisphere. Beaujour was a keen observer in the areas of his responsibility, and along with his prescient analysis, he supplies numerous statistics and tables on population, agriculture, industry, trade and finance.
