Economic History Panel : Past, Present, and Policy
23 - 24 November 2006
The second Economic History Panel : Past, Present, and Policy
23 - 24 November 2006
Bank of England, London, United Kingdom
Series Co-ordinator: Marc Flandreau
On behalf of the organiser, Marc Flandreau
(Institut d'Etudes Politiques de Paris and CEPR)
and following the glowing success of the first
PPP Economic History Panel in Vienna last Fall, I
am writing to invite you to submit a paper for,
or express your interest in attending, the second
PPP Economic History Panel, to be held at and
sponsored by the Bank of England, London, on
November 23 and 24, 2006.
The PPP Economic History Panel is a project that
is jointly sponsored by the Institut d'Etudes
Politiques de Paris and the Centre for Economic
Policy Research in London. Its motivation is the
considerable advances that Economic History has
achieved in the past, and the growing recognition
of its contribution to shape policy responses.
Moreover, since Economic History does not speak
with one single voice, it is important that
alternative views about policy lessons be
debated. Finally, it is clear that Economic
History has a strong potential for inspiring new
theoretical research and therefore be given the
widest possible audience.
The topic of the second meeting will be "The
Evolution Central Banks: Lessons for the Future".
Its goal is to provide a systematic picture of
the link between the emergence of central banks
and central bank policies throughout the world.
Topics may include, but are not limited to: the
emergence of lending of last resort, the
relations between asset price bubbles and
monetary policy, the provision of liquidity and
the financial market, profitability and foreign
exchange intervention, ownership and governance,
etc. While there are no geographical
restrictions, priority will be given to young
European scholars and topics with special
relevance to Europe. Submission of new material
and especially new data is especially encouraged.
The programme will also feature a lecture by
Charles Goodhart, on "Prevention is better than
cure: How can we test whether Central Banks
prevented crises?", as well as the display of
some preliminary results of the central bank
history research task force.
A selection of the papers will be published in a
special issue of the European Review of Economic
History, after due refereeing process. Published
papers will receive a ¤1000 fee.

paper or would be willing to act as a discussant.
