Adam Smith and Amartya Sen : markets and famines in pre-industrial Europe
|Title:||Adam Smith and Amartya Sen : markets and famines in pre-industrial Europe||Authors:||Ó Gráda, Cormac||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/497||Date:||Aug-2002||Online since:||2008-08-26T15:52:31Z||Abstract:||How markets perform during famines has long been a contentious issue. Recent research tends to associate famine with market segmentation and hoarding. The evidence of this paper, based on an analysis of the spatial and temporal patterns of price movements during four famines in preindustrial Europe, is that markets functioned ‘normally’ in times of crisis.||Type of material:||Working Paper||Publisher:||University College Dublin, School of Economics||Series/Report no.:||UCD Centre for Economic Research Working Paper Series; WP02/18||Copyright (published version):||UCD School of Economics||Subject LCSH:||Famines--Europe
