Description

Neo-classical economics is frequently criticised for paying inadequate attention to historical processes. However, it has proved easier to make broad claims that `history matters' than to theorise with any depth about the appropriate role for history in economic analysis.

Historical Analysis in Economics considers what history can contribute to the science of economics: how would it matter if `history mattered?'
