I was reading about New Style and Old Style dates, and I thought about the deletion of dates during the transition. From Wikipedia's article on the Gregorian calendar:
When the new calendar was put in use, the error accumulated in the 13 centuries since the Council of Nicaea was corrected by a deletion of 10 days. The Julian calendar day Thursday, 4 October 1582 was followed by the first day of the Gregorian calendar, Friday, 15 October 1582 (the cycle of weekdays was not affected).
And later, such as in the British colonies in 1752, the prior year was a short 282 days (a deletion of over 80 days).
So, how were debts, such as accrued interest loans, fixed/balloon payments, etc handled? If this kind of change were to occur today and suddenly 10 days were deleted and it suddenly went from May 21st to June 1st, I'd have a check of a time making the mortgage payment. Were loan terms adjusted for the new calendar? Or did the government reduce its tax rates temporarily? How did the economies at the time adjust to this?
