Meetings for the month of April 2019

2019 (entire year)

25/04/2019 Accounting For The Wealth Of Nations: History And Theory, Odense
Hosted By: University of Southern Denmark
Organizers: Stephen N Broadberry, Francesco Caselli and Paul Sharp
The CEPR Economic History and Macro Growth Programmes are getting together for a joint conference on understanding differences in living standards between nations. The conference will take place at SDU to mark the 10th Annual Workshop on Growth, History and Development, in collaboration with the Danish Institute for Advanced Study and in collaboration with CAGE, also marking its 10th year of operation. Economic historians have recently made much progress in reconstructing historical national accounts and quantifying other economic variables for the last millennium. This work has implications for the stylised facts that growth economists seek to explain in their analysis. At the same time, it is important for economic historians to keep abreast of the latest research in growth economics, since new analysis may identify new variables on which relevant historical evidence can be collected. The conference will feature some keynote lectures summarising recent developments in economic history and growth economics as well as current frontier research in both programmes. Confirmed speakers include Philippe Aghion, Bob Allen, Nick Crafts, Oded Galor, Sheilagh Ogilvie, Kevin O?Rourke and Jaume Ventura.
