African Economic History Network Meetings

Just returned from the African Economic History Meetings in Network in Stellenbosch. You can see the full program here.  A lot of high quality papers and lots of promising work in progress from PhD Students. The African Economic History discipline continues to buzz with excitement. I made a presentation based on my forthcoming book with Cambridge University Press: The Wealth and Poverty of African States. Economic growth, living standards and taxation in African states since the late 19th Century. It was also decided that the next years meeting will be in Bologna, Italy – organized by Karin Pallaver.
