Along with seasonal workers from the neighbouring German territories, the Calvinists from the southern Netherlands and the Jews constituted the largest group of foreigners working in the Netherlands. InDe Witt conceived of a life annuity as a weighted average of annuities certain where the weights were mortality probabilities that sum to onethereby producing the present value of a life annuity. In total there are 17 provinces today. An ugly situation was developing.
