The strictures of inheritance : the Dutch economy in the nineteenth century by J. L. van Zanden( Book )

12 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A major feat of research and synthesis, this book presents the first comprehensive history of the Dutch economy in the nineteenth century - an important but poorly understood piece of European economic history. Based on a detailed reconstruction of extensive economic data, the authors account for demise of the Dutch economy's golden age. After showing how institutional factors combined to make the Dutch economy a victim of its own success, the book traces its subsequent emergence as a modern industrial economy."--Jacket

A history of Royal Dutch Shell by Joost Jonker( Book )

14 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Understanding oil is essential for understanding modern history. The 20th century has rightly been called the century of oil, and the importance of this most strategic of commodities shows now sign of abating in the 21st century. From its creation in 1907 Royal Dutch Shell has played a key role in the global oil industry. For most of the 20th century Royal Dutch Shell was either the largest, or after Standard Oil/Exxon, the second largest oil company. This authoritative and meticulously researched history three volume history provides an unparalleled account of the company's rich and diverse history. It shows how access to oil was both the cause of many a conflict, and a key to victory in wars fought for other causes. Oil powered the economy and provided the raw materials for products such as plastics, detergents, and pesticides which radically changed our culture and material environment. The first volume, by Joost Jonker and Jan Luiten van Zanden covers the development of Royal Dutch Shell from the foundation of the two main constituting companies until the outbreak of the Second World War, years of rapid growth, when the company was dominated by Henri Deterding.The second volume by Stephen Howarth and Joost Jonker takes the story from the Outbreak of the Second World War to the first oil crisis of 1973. Volume three by Keetie Sluyterman highlights how Shell faced up to the nationalizations in the oil industry in the 1970s, and to the challenges of collapsing oils price in the 1980s; and concludes in the 21st century when once again nationalizations and concerns about oil supply resurfaced, and how the two parent companies were finally unified. Based on unrestricted access to Royal Dutch Shell's archives, these beautifully designed and illustrated books provide a unique insight into one of the world's great companies

An economic history of Indonesia, 1800-2010 by J. L. van Zanden( Book )

15 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and Indonesian and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on new datasets, this book presents an economic history of Indonesia. It analyses the causes of stagnation of growth during the colonial and independence period, making use of new theoretical insights from institutional economics and new growth theory. The book looks at the major themes of Indonesian history: colonial exploitation and the successes and limitations of the post 1900 welfare policies, the price of instability after 1945, and the economic miracle after 1967. The book not only discusses economic change and development - or the lack thereof - but also the institutional and socio-political structures that were behind these changes. It also presents a lot of new data on the changing welfare of the Indonesian population, on income distribution, and on the functioning of markets for rice, credit and labour. Concluding with a discussion on whether the poor profited from the economic changes, this book is a useful contribution to Southeast Asian Studies and International Economics."--Publisher's description

Nederland en het poldermodel : sociaal-economische geschiedenis van Nederland, 1000-2000 by Maarten Roy Prak( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in Dutch and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nederland is een rijk land, met een egalitaire samenleving. Historisch onderzoek heeft aangetoond dat die kenmerken ver teruggaan in de tijd. Een ander kenmerk van de Nederlandse samenleving was en is het overleg dat overal en voortdurend gevoerd wordt en werd - het 'poldermodel' is misschien wel duizend jaar oud. In 'Nederland en het poldermodel' worden de opkomst en ontwikkeling van dit vaak als typisch Nederlands omschreven overlegmodel gevolgd in een wereld die voortdurend veranderde. Waar kwam deze manier om de samenleving te organiseren vandaan? Hoe veranderde het poldermodel mee? En wat waren de gevolgen daarvan voor de economie en de sociale verhoudingen? Van een overwegend agrarische maatschappij ontwikkelde Nederland zich eerst tot een commerciële en vervolgens tot een geïndustrialiseerde natie. Tijdens die tien eeuwen is Nederland uitgegroeid tot een van de meest welvarende landen ter wereld."--Provided by publisher

A history of market performance : from ancient Babylonia to the modern world( Book )

10 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This exciting new volume examines the development of market performance from Antiquity until the dawn of the Industrial Revolution. Efficient market structures are agreed by most economists to serve as evidence of economic prosperity, and to be prerequisites for further economic growth. However, this is the first study to examine market performance as a whole, over such a large time period. Presenting a hitherto unknown and inaccessible corpus of data from ancient Babylonia, this international set of contributors are for the first time able to offer an in-depth study of market performance over a period of 2,500 years. The contributions focus on the market of staple crops, as they were crucial goods in these societies. Over this entire period, all papers provide a similar conceptual and methodological framework resting on a common definition of market performance combined with qualitative and quantitative analyses resting on new and improved price data. In this way, the book is able to combine analysis of the Babylonian period with similar work on the Roman, Early-and Late Medieval and Early Modern period. Bringing together input from assyriologists, ancient historians, economic historians and economists, this volume will be crucial reading for all those with an interest in ancient history, economic history and economics."
