Between Empire and Globalization An Economic History of Modern Spain

Autores: Albert Carreras, Xavier Tafunell

This book provides a rigorously chronological journey through the economic history of modern Spain, always with an eye opened to what happens in the international economy and a focus on economic policy making and institutional change. It shows the central theme of the Spanish economy from the late 18th century to the early 21st century is the painful  transformation from being a major imperial power to a small nation and later a member of the European Community and a player in a globalized economy. It looks in detail at two major issues – economic growth and convergence or divergence to the Western European pattern- and the permanent tension between the two when assessing historical experience since the industrial revolution. This book proposes new visions of the economic past of Spain and  provides comparisons over time and space, which will be of interest to academics and students of economic history, European economic history and more specifically Spanish economic history.
