Cliometrics, History of Economic Thought

Cliometric research is underpinned by theories of growth and economic cycles. We employ historical archives, theoretical mathematical models, and empirical work in certain priority areas: human capital, demographics, finance, etc. In the history of economic thought, the preferred methodological approach is neither thematic nor doctrinal, but based on the analysis of texts. Texts are conceived as instruments for the formulation and exploration of a research question.
