Project description

We bring together four flemish and nine international research teams to study Roman economic development: 1° Can economic growth/decline be attributed to the Roman institutional framework ? 2° Did economic development change this framework? (3) What part was played by ecology ? We combine data from archaeology and natural science with models from neo-institutional and development economics, in a comparative long-term perspective. (
