  • Commercial Networks and European Cities, 1400?1800by Andrea Caracausi; Christof Jeggle

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 52.95

    Merchant networks generated trade and the exchange of goods between the cities of early modern Europe. This collection of essays analyses these commercial networks, focusing on the roles of kinship, origin, religion and business in creating and maintaining urban economies. more...

  • Conflict and Cooperation in Sino-British Business 1860-1911by Eiichi Motono

    Palgrave Macmillan 2000; US$ 133.00

    This is a study about the collapse of Chinese traditional commercial order in the late Qing period. It regards the process as an influence from the prevalence of pro-British Chinese commercial networks in the 1880s. Through the analysis of various Sino-British commercial conflicts after the Arrow war, this book reveals when and where such a commercial... more...

  • A Confluence of Transatlantic Networksby Laura Jarnagin

    University of Alabama Press 2014; US$ 34.95

    A Confluence of Transatlantic Network demonstrates how portions of interconnected trust-based kinship, business, and ideational transatlantic networks evolved over roughly a century and a half and eventually converged to engender, promote, and facilitate the migration of southern elites to Brazil in the post?Civil War era. Placing that migration... more...

  • Connecting Histories in Afghanistanby Shah Hanifi

    Stanford University Press 2011; US$ 24.95

    Most histories of nineteenth-century Afghanistan argue that the country remained immune to the colonialism emanating from British India because, militarily, Afghan defenders were successful in keeping out British imperial invaders. However, despite these military victories, colonial influences still made their way into Afghanistan. Looking closely... more...

  • Constraints on Trade in the MENA regionby Hirut Wolde; Rina Bhattacharya

    International Monetary Fund 2010; US$ 9.00

    In this paper we estimate gravity models to see whether trade volumes of countries in the MENA region are significantly lower than what would be expected given their economic, cultural and geographical characteristics. Our empirical results show that the variables used in standard gravity models cannot explain a significant part of MENA's trade performance,... more...

  • Convergence or Divergence in Europe?by Olivier de Bandt; Heinz Herrmann; Giuseppe Parigi

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 169.00

    Against the background of the introduction of the euro in 1999, France, Germany and Italy have recently experienced higher divergence in terms of GDP growth. Indeed, there is no consensus among economists regarding the effects of monetary union, which can lead either to more specialisation as in the United States, or to increasing intra-industry trade,... more...

  • Current Account Norms in Natural Resource Rich and Capital Scarce Economiesby Juliana Dutra Araujo; Grace Bin Li; Marcos Poplawski-Ribeiro; Luis-Felipe Zanna

    International Monetary Fund 2013; US$ 9.00

    The permanent income hypothesis implies that frictionless open economies with exhaustible natural resources should save abroad most of their resource windfalls and, therefore, feature current account surpluses. Resource-rich developing countries (RRDCs), on the other hand, face substantial development needs and tight external borrowing constraints.... more...

  • Die Industrie- und Handelskammer zu Berlinby Thomas Hertz

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 70.00

    The history of the Berlin Chamber of Industry and Commerce mirrors the history of Berlin. The author recounts the history of the Chamber, embedding it in the political, social and economic context of Berlin as a business location. Thus it is possible to trace the quintessential changes and breaks in the chequered history of the city - from... more...

  • Distant Tyrannyby Regina Grafe

    Princeton University Press 2011; US$ 46.00

    Spain's development from a premodern society into a modern unified nation-state with an integrated economy was painfully slow and varied widely by region. Economic historians have long argued that high internal transportation costs limited domestic market integration, while at the same time the Castilian capital city of Madrid drew resources from... more...

  • Doing Business in Chinaby Laurence J. Brahm

    Tuttle Publishing 2011; US$ 14.95

    "Strike hard, retreat, seize a position, reject compromise, and strike again."?These are common negotiating tactics in a country with a long history of strategic philosophy. Negotiating a deal in China requires patience?a well known Confucian virtue; persistence?something which comes with time; and survival instincts?something that comes with persistence.... more...
