I prezzi delle cose / The Prices of Things

Nell'età preindustriale / In Pre-industrial Times
  • Edited by:
  • Giampiero Nigro,

Price dynamics is one of the classic topics of economic history. Since the thirties of the 20th century, it has attracted a lively interest across all European countries. The materials collected and published at that time continue to constitute an important documentary basis for any research on the economic trend of pre-industrial economies. Interest in prices declined from the 1970s to the 1990s. However, it has resumed over the past fifteen to twenty years as a result of renewed attention to the issue of growth and long-term changes in the economies of the past. The comparison between the levels of development of different economies, such as Europe and Asia, together with the use of more advanced statistical tools in the field of economic history, has strengthened the interest in prices. The contributions in this work are organized around two macro-themes: The formation of prices in pre-industrial economies and societies from the 12th century to the beginning of the 19th century and the movement of prices in the long run, as well as the existing relationship with that of other economic and non-economic variables, such as population, money supply, product, productivity, the speed of circulation of money, changes in institutions.
