The concerns of this seminar are wide-ranging in time, place, and method. Emphasis is on European and American economic growth and development from feudal times to the present, with a growing representation of contributions on Latin America, Asia, and Africa.  Topics range from microeconomic studies of firms undergoing rapid technical change and households changing their interaction between home and market to more macroeconomic topics concerned with national and regional economic growth performance, the economics of imperialism, and the political economy of the Great Depression. Given the breadth of the seminar’s membership and interests, comparative economic history is often a central element in seminar discussions. Pre-circulation of papers permits vigorous discussion.
