An understanding of economic history lends clarity to many questions in economics. Among these are: The extent and impact of globalization; the determinants of the wealth of nations; the occurrence and impact of financial crisis; and the importance of economic institutions. Each of these putatively modern questions have long historical antecedents. We will treat these questions with a modern rigour, studying work that uses theoretical and econometric analysis.
