Periodic Report - HI-POD (Historical patterns of development and underdevelopment: origins and persistence of the great divergence)

Project ID: 225342
Funded under: FP7-SSH

Abstract

This is the periodic report for the HI-POD project which aimed to advance our understanding of the causes of development and underdevelopment by quantifying the relative growth experiences of the European core and periphery, and the rest of the world, from the Middle Ages until today; and by analysing the intra-regional and inter-regional causes of these divergent trends. All results mentioned in the report are broken down according to individual work packages. The report notes that the ambition of the project goes however beyond pure academic research: it aims at having an impact in the policy arena, given that it addresses very topical issues.
