  1. The Disintegration of the World Economy between the World Wars

    The Disintegration of the World Economy between the World Wars

    Edited by Mark Thomas
    These two volumes provide a range of perspectives on the collapse of the world economy in the interwar period, a time when problems of crisis and confrontation drastically affected world economic performance. During this period, national and international politics intruded upon global economic relations with more intensity than before. Trade and finance became instruments of government policy with the emergence of macroeconomic analyses of domestic economic performance. While the volumes concentrate on the major trends in the global economy as a whole, attention is also paid to developments in particular economies. Learn More

  3. The Integration of the World Economy, 1850–1914

    The Integration of the World Economy, 1850–1914

    Edited by C. K. Harley
    During the latter part of the nineteenth century and the beginning of this century both international trade and national economies grew exponentially, with international trade growing considerably faster than national income. Contributors to these two volumes question whether trade’s more rapid growth was an engine pulling successful economies, or whether government policies of trade protection had a greater impact upon national economic growth. The essays in this collection analyse four major driving forces of the period’s sustained economic growth: changes in tariff policies; the technological “revolution” in transportation costs; the population and income growth effects upon demand; and the alterations to comparative advantage brought about by technological changes and resource discoveries.
