|Title:||Markets and famines in pre-industrial Europe||Authors:||Ó Gráda, Cormac||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/447||Date:||2005||Abstract:||How markets perform during famines has long been a contentious issue. Recent research tends to associate famine with market segmentation and hoarding. Evidence based on an analysis of the spatial and temporal patterns of food-price movements during four famines in pre-industrial Europe indicates that markets functioned "normally" in times of crisis.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Massachusetts Institute of Technology Press||Copyright (published version):||Copyright by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and The Journal of Interdisciplinary History, Inc.||Subject LCSH:||Famines--Europe--History
