Economic Development and Economic History
I really should have attended the Economic History Association conference in Austin this weekend. Brad DeLong has posted his talk "Marx, Rostow, Kuznets, Gerschenkron" from a session on "The role of economic history as a guide to economic development." The talk is full of interesting ideas, combining intellectual history with a strong case for the importance of economic history in understanding development.
