Location: On campus

Economic historians study how past economies have changed and the factors that influence economic development. LSE’s Department of Economic History focusses on practical questions about real economies. For instance, why are some countries rich and others poor, what forces shape inequality and what does historical experience reveal about current global economic developments and crises?
