The future of economic history

The aim of a workshop held at Queen's University Belfast in January was to make academic and professional economists – and, more broadly, the interested general public – aware of the key problems associated with missing out economic history training from the education of new economists. And then, once the problem was acknowledged and understood, to discuss possible solutions. The workshop was part of a larger pedagogical research project being led by Chris Colvin (Queen's University Belfast) and Matthias Blum (German Medical Association). Contributions to the discussion came from Nicholas Crafts (University of Warwick, CEPR), Paul Winfree (The Heritage Foundation) and Wendy Carlin (University College London, CEPR)
