An Economic History of Twentieth-Century Europe: Economic Regimes from Laissez-Faire to Globalization
A major history of economic regimes and economic performance throughout the twentieth century. Ivan T. Berend looks at the historic development of the twentieth-century European economy, examining both its failures and its successes in responding to the challenges of this crisis-ridden and troubled but highly successful age. The book surveys the European economy's chronological development, the main factors of economic growth, and the various economic regimes that were invented and introduced in Europe during the twentieth century. Professor Berend shows how the vast disparity between the European regions that had characterized earlier periods gradually began to disappear during the course of the twentieth century as more and more countries reached a more or less similar level of economic development. This accessible book will be required reading for students in European economic history, economics, and modern European history.

English Merchant Shipping 1460-1540
Between 1460 and 1540 the development of merchant shipping was of vital importance to the growth of England as a European power. In this work Miss Burwash offers a complete history of the English merchant marine in the late middle ages and early renaissance period. Her account includes a description of the size and design of the ships, the trades in which they engaged, the business arrangements under which they sailed and the codes of maritime law which governed them, the wages and conditions of work of the common seaman and the degree of navigational skill of the shipmasters and pilots. This was the time when seamen and merchants of northern Europe were beginning to venture out of the familiar home waters and undertake voyages of discovery such as the Bristol expeditions 1501-1504 which in all probability reached Labrador and possibly Greenland. The author concludes that, although English shipping faced stiff competition from traders and seamen of other countries in northern Europe-most particularly the Dutch-the period was one of healthy growth which laid a good foundation for the more brilliant and better known exploits of the Elizabethan age. Based on extensive and detailed research in manuscript sources preserved in the Public Record Office, British libraries and the British Museum, this study is an essential one for serious students of English history.

Inequality and Finance in Macrodynamics
This contributed volume combines approaches of the current inequality debate with aspects of finance based on profound macroeconomic model analyses. Research on inequality has had a long tradition in economics. With the financial crisis from 2007, not only output decreased tremendously, but also inequality has risen since then. The book presents selected contributions of a workshop held at Bielefeld University in 2016 and features additional papers written by experts in the field. A mixture of established researchers and young scholars presents both theoretical and empirical frameworks to analyze the subject.

Industrial Growth and Population Change
Sir Tony Wrigley's classic regional study of industrial development and demographic change in the Austrasian coalfield belt (stretching from Pas-De-Calais in the West to the Ruhr in the East) was first published in 1959. Its first part deals with the circumstances which encouraged more rapid industrial growth in some areas while inhibiting in others, and with the relationship between regional economic growth and the increase of industrial population. The second part deals with the demographic history of the coalfield industrial areas; their relation to the sociology of those areas; and the sources of the population growth which took place in them. In both parts the discussion centres on the contrast between the coalfield industrial areas and the three national units of France, Belgium and Germany on the one hand; and on the other on the contrasts which existed within the coalfield industrial areas themselves. Industrial Growth and Population Change deliberately strays across the conventional boundaries of social scientific analysis, embracing economic history, historical geography, demography and sociology. The underlying thesis is that economic historians have tended too readily to suppose that the national entity is the appropriate unit of study. Regional or local analysis is sometimes equally or more revealing about the nature of major changes taking place and the reasons for them.

Occupation and Pay in Great Britain 1906-60
This is a study of the changing size of occupational classes, of their concomitant pay structure and the timing and circumstances of changes in this structure, in the period 1906-1960. In marshalling the facts about the numbers of people in the various broad occupational classes, Dr Routh has indicated the rise or fall of numbers in the occupations of which each class is composed, and the relation of these changes to the changing industrial structure of the economy. He also shows changes in participation rate by age and sex over the half-century, and makes some comparisons of the broad occupational structure of Britain with that of some other countries.

The Economics of Pensions: Principles, Policies, and International Experience
The significant store of knowledge about publicly regulated pensions for old age has grown even more rapidly in the last decade. This book, first published in 1997, explores current research in four critical areas for pension policy: the political design of pension institutions; the iron links between fiscal deficits, private savings, and pension reform; how macroeconomic policy should be conducted after large private pension funds have emerged; and lessons on efficient organization of the pension industry, drawn from international comparisons including Australia, Chile, Malaysia, and the United Kingdom. The collection combines original theoretical analysis with empirical evidence. Simulations, case studies, and econometric estimates provide policy makers with information about the options they face, while scholars can draw on this book for refining their own investigations or research.

Capitals of Capital: The Rise and Fall of International Financial Centres 1780-2009
This is the first history of international financial centres and of the major stake that they now represent in the global economy. Youssef Cassis, one of the world's leading financial historians, provides a fascinating comparative history of the most important centres that constitute the capitals of capital - New York, London, Frankfurt, Paris, Zurich, Amsterdam, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Singapore. The book explores the dynamics of the rise and decline of these great centres from the beginning of the industrial age up to the present, setting them throughout in their economic, political, social, and cultural context and drawing on concepts from financial economics in its analysis of events. This paperback edition has been fully updated to take account of the challenges posed by the financial collapse of 2007-8 and offers the longer term framework necessary to understand the ongoing economic crisis facing capitals of capital today.

Domestic Goods: The Material, the Moral and the Economic in the Postwar Years
Visions of life in the fifties often spring from America: supermarkets, freeways, huge gleaming cars, pink washer dryers, automated households. For the first time historian Joy Parr searches behind the generalizations about the prodigality of this era to look for a specifically Canadian consumer life. Focusing on the records left by consumers and manufacturers, and relying on interviews and letters from many Canadian women who married in the decade after the war, she reveals exactly how and why Canadian homemakers distinguished themselves from the consumer frenzy of their southern neighbours. Domestic Goods is primarily concerned with furniture and appliances. For Parr, the problems of design, production and consumption demand an analysis of the intertwining of the political, economic and aesthetic. The international style of high modernism reflected the postwar dream of free trade. The desire for economic self-sufficiency influenced the creation of the tools Canadians would have in their homes. But while manufacturers devised new plans for the consumer, depression-era frugality, a conscious modesty, and their shared aspirations for a welfare state led those potential customers to evade and rework what was offered them, eventually influencing the kinds of goods created. This book addresses questions such as, Why were there advocado-coloured refrigerators? Why were stoves moved below waist level after the war? Why did women use their old hand wringers for over a decade after the automatic washer was brought in? In finding the answers the author celebrates and ultimately suggests reclaiming a particularly Canadian way of consuming.
