Economic history

- (295 books )

Who cares about Economic History? After all, it is a mere account of what happened during the Great Depression or the Renaissance! The answer is that leading economists and historians could not have become successful and effective without an insight into Economic History. The reason is that this domain helps economists draw inferences from actual happenings and data to arrive at possible conclusions about their own theories. A good look into the Economic History during the time of the Great Depression can help understand the 2008 financial crisis in the US. No wonder then that history (especially Economic History) is the greatest teacher.
