Markets and Governments in Economic History

Books in the Markets and Governments in Economic History series, edited by Price V. Fishback, examine the roles states and markets play in the development of the institutions that fostered social and economic growth in the United States and around the world throughout history. Each book in the series combines narrative with quantitative analysis to offer an illuminating and authoritative account. Especially appropriate for the series are works that synthesize theoretical methods and historical evidence to develop new ways to interpret the past and to examine modern institutions. Among the topics that are of interest are:

  • The successes and failures of government regulation of markets
  • The roles played by market decision makers in determining government policies
  • The changes in the roles played by courts, legislators, and administrators in influencing markets
  • The shifting roles of local, state, and federal governments over time
