Histories of finance and state formation

Further links across the department's research groups include histories of urban finance and governance including the formation of the local state with particular emphasis on the origin and role of chambers of commerce in patterns of economic development. A key project under this theme, with extensive archival work, is the ESRC large grant The Drivers of Entrepreneurship and Small Business (PI R.J. Bennett).
