Conference Tariffs in History

Instituto Figuerola, Universidad Carlos III Madrid, May 13-14, 2010

NEW - SEE HERE A BRIEF RESUME OF THE EVENT

This conference is part of the activities of our Research Programme: Economic integration and growth.

At this moment, when we fear a trade backlash and a return to protection, it is urgent to promote a new reflection on such issues as commercial policy and economic crisis, or tariffs reactions and economic growth, from the point of view of what happened in the past. The complexity of reactions and growth performances during globalization crises call for the introduction of a long term, and geographically extended perspective on the role of tariffs and growth in history. Over the past decade or so, economists and economic historians have revisited conventional wisdom regarding commercial trade policy and these issues will be discussed in this Conference comparatively and over the long run.
