Louise Adélaïde de Bourbon (1757–1824)

Louise Adélaïde de Bourbon was a French nun. She was the last Remiremont abbess and founded at the beginning of the Bourbon Restoration, a religious community that became famous among French Catholics under the name of Bénédictines de la rue Monsieur, she constructed the Hôtel de Mademoiselle de Condé, named after her. Born at the Château de Chantilly in 1757, Louise Adélaïde was the third and last child of Louis Joseph de Bourbon, prince de Condé and his wife, Charlotte de Rohan, the daughter of Charles de Rohan, prince de Soubise; as a member of the reigning House of Bourbon, she was born a princesse. She was educated at the Pentemont Abbey, one of Paris' most prestigious schools for daughters of the aristocracy. At court, she was known as Mademoiselle de Condé and in some sources is styled as princesse de Condé. A descendant of le Grand Condé, Louise Adelaïde was the aunt of the last duc d'Enghien, she was a second cousin of the future revolutionary, Philippe Égalité. A first cousin was the Charles Alain, Prince of Guéméné, son of her aunt Victoire de Rohan, princesse de Guéméné.

Her mother died at the Hôtel de Condé after a long illness. As a result, Louise Adélaïde was raised by her great-aunt, Henriette Louise de Bourbon.

Market production

In a general sense, market production refers to the production of a product or service, intended for sale at a money-price in a market. The product or service in principle has to be tradable for money. However, in national accounts the term has a more specific meaning, because many producing organizations exist in the economy which either do not produce for any distinct market, or which produce for the market, don't; these are non-commercial or commercial organizations, which can be self-funded, but not-for-profit, or funded by sources other than their own revenue. Statisticians therefore have to define "market production" much more in order to be able to separate out market production in a consistent way, distinguish it from non-market production. If they would be unable to do so, they would be unable to measure market production in a meaningful and consistent way. In the United Nations System of National Accounts, market production includes all those producing units who sell most or all of their output at prices which are "economically significant".

For example, a school or a university would be a market producer if it charges fees which are based on their production costs, which are sufficiently high to influence demand for their services. The school or university would have to generate loss. Non-market production, by contrast, includes producing units which provide most of their output to others either free of charge, or at prices which are "not economically significant" - for example, government institutions, households, or non-profit institutions. If prices are charged for services supplied, these prices do not change in response to fluctuations in supply or demand or else they are prices which do not cover the cost of supply; the organizations in this category do not provide a financial gain to the units which control or manage them. In addition, they depend on funding other than sales revenue to cover their costs of production, or of other activities they might carry out. Non-market production can include subsistence production where producers produce something for their own use, rather than trading what they produce for something else.
