Abstract: Abstract This chapter concludes the Handbook of Comparative Economics by revisiting the chapters collected in this edited book and by articulating the links that exist between them. We discuss what we have learned from each of these contributions, and how, together, they contribute to defining what comparative economics is today. We, in particular, emphasize the opening up of the field to a variety of cognate disciplines and a relative effort to incorporate their key contributions, and we discuss some of the ways in which new issues are tackled and new methods are used to tackle them. We conclude on the continued importance of comparative analysis and its relevance to understanding the important issues of the day.
