Welcome to the LSE Economic History Blog

The LSE Economic History Blog provides an accessible introduction to the cutting-edge work and teaching taking place at the London School of Economics and Political Science and the achievements of our students, faculty and alumni.

Our blog posts are written by students, faculty, visitors and alumni and explore the wide range of economic history for which LSE is known. We will also occasionally re-post appropriate articles from other blogs.
