About this blog
This is a blog about global economic and political history. There is a special focus on Europe and the early modern period, but the analysis is comparative, and I do at times refer to other world regions and time periods.
This blog’s first name was “no future without a past” but shortly after its creation I decided to change it to a less poetic but more informative name.
If you want to study economic history, then read this post.
My name is Nuno Palma. I am an assistant professor in the department of economics, econometrics, and finance of the University of Groningen.
