Economics and Economic History

Economic history is concerned with understanding the process of change in the past. It is an interdisciplinary, evidence-based and research-driven approach to the study of history. Economic history uses concepts, theories and skills from a broad range of social sciences to study historical issues including: why nations experience economic growth or fall behind, the causes of population change and migration, why financial crises occur, the economic and social effects of warfare, the history of economic development throughout the world, the role of education and human capital in economic change, the effect of business organisation on economic performance, and change in social behaviour in the past.
