Workshop "Tin and the Global Economy"
The objective of this workshop is to utilize the tin industry as a prism to study the globalization of the world economy after 1850, with particular emphasis on the relations between private enterprise and the state. Our goal is to bring together scholars utilizing a wide variety of sources, approaches and perspectives. Suitable themes include, but are not limited to, subjects such as tin cartels and the international commodity trade, tin as a strategic raw material and the businesspolitics nexus related to the trade, organizational capabilities of the firm, the societal and environmental impact of tin mining, and the political economy of tin. This event is first in a series to be organized by an emerging network of scholars working on strategic raw materials and business-government relations.
