The World Economy: Historical Statistics

Опубликовано на портале: 14-08-2007
Изд-во: OECD, 2003, 276 с.
Written by the distinguished economic historian, Angus Maddison, the book offers a rare insight into the history and political influence of national accounts and national accounting. Packed with over 150 tables, boxes and figures, this book pulls together an incredible array of hard-to-find facts both large and small. These are just a random sample: Annual Change of World GDP, IMF and Maddison Measures, 1970-2001; World Gold Output by Major Region, 1493-1925; Slave Exports from Black Africa, 650-1900, by Destination; Population of 12 West European Countries, 1500-2003; Per Capita GDP in Western Offshoots (Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United States), 1500-2001. The World Economy: Historical Statistics is a "must" for all scholars and students of economics and economic history, while the casual reader will find much of fascinating interest. It is also a monumental work of reference. It is the sequel to the author's best-selling The World Economy: a Millennial Perspective, published by the OECD Development Centre in 2001.
