Historical Perspectives on Industrial, Economic and Financial Development

Ioannina Meeting on Applied Economics and Finance-IMAEF 2022

Cephalonia (Greece), June 22-24, 2022

Introduction

The Revista de Historia Industrial-Industrial History Review (RHI-IHR) would like to invite you to submit a paper proposal for a session at the forthcoming Ioannina Meeting on Applied Economics and Finance-IMAEF 2022 (Cephalonia, Greece, June 22-24, 2022, imaef.econ.uoi.gr). The theme of the session is Historical Perspectives on Industrial, Economic and Financial Development. It will be organized by Gabriele Cappelli (University of Siena), Nikos Benos (University of Ioannina) and Yorgos Goletsis (University of Ioannina), who have been commissioned by the RHI-IHR to this end.

Contents

Since the publication of Acemoglu, Johnson and Robinson’s 2001 article on the Colonial origins of comparative development, economists have shown a renewed interest in economic history. In the last two decades, the share of economic-history articles in the main journals concerned with growth and development has increased substantially; yet, the relationship between economic history and economics remains an uneasy one: overall, the share of economic-history contributions in economics journals has not increased much, while cross-citations are limited. The session and the Special Issue of the RHI-IHR aim at promoting an interdisciplinary discussion across the fields of economic history and economics concerning trends in industrial, financial and economic development as well as their determinants. The session will accommodate research stemming on the historiography of industrialization, finance and banking, and long-term development, as well as contributions tackling present-day issues in economic and development policy by looking at the past and at historical and natural experiments.

The session at the IMAEF Conference welcomes contributions dealing with (but by no means limited to) trends and factors associated with industrialization and economic development – for example:

  1. Patterns of industrialization and how they relate to economic growth and development;
  2. The evolution of living standards, including per-capita GDP, real wages, and human stature, among the others;
  3. Human capital accumulation and its determinants, such as education policy, primary schooling, vocational and technical education, the political economy of schooling, etc.;
  4. Trade and migration flows;
  5. Financial, banking and monetary systems and their relationship with growth and development;
  6. Inequality concerning wealth, incomes and living conditions, focused on between-country as sell within-country inequality.

Publication

After a process of double-blind review, to be carried out after the Conference, five of the accepted papers will be selected for a Special Issue of the Revista de Historia Industrial-Industrial History Review edited by Gabriele Cappelli, Nikos Benos and Yorgos Goletsis, to be published in 2023. The remaining contributions, if accepted by the peer review process, can be published in regular issues of the journal.
