- DescriptionThis book seeks to identify the forces which explain how and why some parts of the world have grown rich and others have lagged behind. Encompassing 2000 years of history, part 1 begins with the Roman Empire and explores the key factors that have influenced ecomic development in Africa, Asia, the Americas and Europe. Part 2 covers the development of macroecomic tools of analysis from the 17th century to the present. Part 3 looks to the future and considers what the shape of the world ecomy might be in 2030. Combining both the close quantitative analysis for which Professor Maddison is famous with a more qualitative approach that takes into account the complexity of the forces at work, this book provides students and all interested readers with a totally fascinating overview of world ecomic history.
