Call for papers

The Department of Economic and Social Sciences (DiSES) of Università Politecnica delle Marche is organizing a 3 day conference with a focus on the comparison of the causes and the consequences of the Great Crisis of 1929 and the 2008 Great Recession, and on what we can learn from them in order to overcome large-scale crises.

The aim of the conference is to examine in depth both the 1929 and the current crises from different analytical and empirical perspectives, although contributions may extend to the late 19th century Depression or other relevant recessions in the industrial age.
