Economics at your fingertips  

Comparative Political Economy, vol 1

Charles P. Kindleberger

in MIT Press Books from The MIT Press

Abstract: Charles P. Kindleberger's rich and distinguished career has spanned nearly six decades. The essays collected here reflect the author's shift in interests from foreign exchange to international trade, economic growth, and economic history, especially financial history. They also contain dollops of sociology and political science. Kindleberger views himself as a historical economist who tests economic propositions against the historical record in more than one setting. The collection contains many of the jewels of Kindleberger's work. Most of the papers are strong on comparison (within Western Europe and between Europe and the United States), on economic or financial history, and on social science beyond the confines of economics.
