Economic history studies from myriad angles the most elementary question of all: how mankind managed to unleash an unprecedented growth of affluence, which has been a blessing for many, a hope for many more, and a challenge for future generations. We think that finding empirical data will help us understand these issues, and that applying methods and concepts from economic theory will help to observe causal relationships that deepen our understanding of the economic past.
