Economic History Research

Researchers in economic history focus on the evolution and performance of political and economic institutions over the long term in order to better understand how economies function today. They are particularly interested in how economic performance is enhanced or constrained through policy making and institutions that create and enforce rules that determine who votes, and how capital and labor markets and fiscal institutions operate.
