There will be a joint session of SIOE and ACES, the Association for Comparative Economic Studies, at the 2021 ASSA meetings. Tuesday, Jan. 5, 2021, 12:15 PM - 2:15 PM (EST).
Noam Yuchtman and I have organized a session on "The Real Effects of Public Organization," which brings together three fascinating papers on the introduction of professional police in Britain, good and bad patronage in the English Navy until 1849, and political hierarchies in China in the last millennium.
We cordially invite all SIOE members registered for ASSA to join us in discussing these economic history papers that provide intriguing new perspectives on the public sector in different economic systems.
