We are Ninjas: How Economic History has Infiltrated Economics

by Claude Diebolt (Université de Strasbourg & Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique)

In his History of Economic Analysis, Schumpeter argued that among the three pillars of economics, economic history was the most important. At the American Economic Association meetings in 1964 the AEA offered a session on economic history during which the star studded cast - including future Nobel laureates Douglass North and Robert Fogel - espoused the importance of economic history in the training of future economists. Now, a half century later, we seek to revisit the role of economic history in the disciplines of economics and history to consider how its role has changed since Schumpeter’s proclamation and where the discipline fits within the larger framework of economic theory and the education of the next generation of economists and historians.
