The Long Run Growth and Development of the World Economy: Measurement and Theory
In recent years, economic theorists have made important advances in understanding the transition of economies from pre-industrial stagnation to modern economic growth, while economic historians have developed a detailed empirical account of economic growth over the second millennium. The aim of the exploratory workshop is to bring together the insights of theorists and historians, and pave the way for future common research on the causes of economic growth in the very long run. The workshop will be organised around a set of themes where research is active on both sides. The workshop will actively seek presentations by junior researchers.
