Michalis Psalidopoulos, Eugénia Mata

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The essays in this volume explore and discuss the process of dissemination of economic ideas among Europe’s less developed countries and regions, as well as the interaction between economic thought and economic policy in different times and places during the nineteenth century. The comparative approach adopted sheds new light on the course of economic development in Europe’s less developed countries in the nineteenth century and the role played by political economy. Topics covered include: economic policy in Denmark; monetary and trade policy in Norway; the influence of the German Historical School in Finland; land Reform and the abolition of serfdom in Russia and in Poland; protectionist, populist and Marxist reactions to liberalism in Rumania; the evolution of economic thought in the Ottoman Empire; monetary thought and policy in Greece; eclectic economic thought in Serbia; the economic theory of civil society in Italy; liberal and protectionist economic policy recommendations in Portugal; agriculture and political economy before and after the Famine in Ireland. With contributions that disclose important insights into national traditions in economic thought and policy, and the diffusion of ideas in Europe, this work will be essential reading for all scholars of the history of economic thought. Michalis Psalidopoulos is Associate Professor at the Department of Sociology, Panteion University of Political and Social Sciences, Athens.
