Saling Aktienführer digital

Die Mannheimer Universitätsbibliothek hat seit Juni 2019 den Saling Aktienführer digital bereitstellt. Dabei sind die Jahrgänge 1870-1957 jeweils als pdf oder im DFG-viewer verfügbar. Die Jahre zwischen 1957 bis 2016 sind vollständig digitalisiert.
Diese einzigartige Quelle für börsennotierte Unternehmen ist damit zum ersten Mal vollständig einsehbar, da die meisten Bibliotheken lediglich über einige Bände verfügen.

Neuerscheinungen

Walther Müller-Jentsch, Review-Artikel: Wirtschafts- und sozialpolitische Weichenstellungen in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland

Design und Erfolg des „deutschen Modells“ wurden maßgeblich von zwei wirtschafts- und sozialpolitischen Weichenstellungen nach 1945 bestimmt: der Einführung der Sozialen Marktwirt-schaft und der Mitbestimmung der Arbeitnehmer in Betrieb und Unternehmen.
Über beide Phänomene wurde eine Vielzahl von Publikationen veröffentlicht. Wenn hier nun zwei weitere Bücher zu den beiden Gegenstandsbereichen vorgestellt werden, dann aus den nachvollziehbaren Gründen, weil die Publikation zur Sozialen Marktwirtschaft deren Entstehungsgeschichte neu erzählt und weil das Werk zur Arbeitnehmermitbestimmung
die Entstehungsgeschichte des Gesetzes von 1976 behandelt, zu der bisher keine fundierte historische Monographie vorliegt, im Gegensatz zu der reichhaltigen Literatur zu den Gesetzen zur Montanmitbestimmung und zur Betriebsverfassung.

Call for Papers

Workshop of the SPP 1859, “Experience and Expectations”

DETERMINANTS OF SAVING. HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVES
July 1st-3rd, 2020 at the University of Bayreuth
Convenors
Jan-Otmar Hesse, Sebastian Knake, Sebastian Teupe (University of Bayreuth),
Sibylle Lehmann-Hasemeyer (University of Hohenheim), Jochen Streb (University of Mannheim), Christian Conrad (University of Heidelberg)


The saving behaviour of households and individuals still belongs to the puzzling issues of economic theory. It seems largely unaffected by some of the most important macro-economic indicators, like interest rates or inflation rates. The setting of interest rates, too, has been found in need of explanation as the relation between nominal interest rates and inflation has been contradicting economists' expectations since Fisher´s "paradox". The puzzling nature of price movements and saving behaviour makes them a perfect object for research in economic history. Formal and hermeneutic approaches to economic history can be combined to understand economic decision-making in a changing social and institutional setting.

Our 3-day workshop, that is part of the German Research Foundation´s Priority Programme 1859 “Experience and Expectation: Historical Foundations of Economic Behaviour", will provide an opportunity to discuss the determinants of saving in a historical perspective. We are especially interested in, but not restricted to, the link between price stability (or the loss of) and saving behaviour. Questions that we would like to discuss are: How did households react to periods of inflation or deflation, and how did they make sense of this experience? How did periods of price changes influence the actors' “expectation horizon”? What do we know about the transfer process from changes of expectation to the allocation of savings? How did institutional factors influence the role of price developments for decision-making? Are there historical periods of a specific "saving rationality"?

To address these questions we are looking for contributions centred on one or more of the following fields of research, whether using cliometric methods, hermeneutic approaches or insights from the history of economic thought. First, we are interested in papers addressing the development of price changes and interest rates in a long-term perspective. Second, we are looking for papers dealing with the relationship between macro-economic indicators and saving decisions. Third, we welcome papers that discuss the institutional underpinnings of saving behaviour or the setting of interest rates over time. The workshop intends to bring together experienced scholars, Post-Docs and PhD students.

Scholars interested in submitting a paper that will be discussed during the conference are invited to send a brief abstract of 300 words and a one-page CV by 15 February 2020 to Sebastian.teupe@uni-bayreuth.de. Decisions will be made before mid-March.

The conference will be able to provide up to 4-nights hotel accommodation and cover travel costs (up to 350 € within Europe; 1.000 € outside of Europe) for all presenters.

In this respect, the program features both lectures and seminars given by faculty and student presentations of their research projects. Each student will have 20 minutes maximum to present her/his project, stressing especially: research questions and goals, methodology, sources, challenges and provisional outcomes.

Newsletter IEHA 2018

International Economic History Association

Happy belated New Year, I hope you have had a productive 2018 as we did at the International Economic History Association (IEHA). 2019 has been going on for a while, but I wanted to wait to send out the Call for Papers for the 2021 World Congress again, so apologies about the delay. We are now about eight months past the XVIIIth World Economic History Congress (WEHC), which took place in Boston in 2018. Here I will report on some of the activities at the Congress, and reflect on the next one. Finally, I want to thank past officers of the Association and discuss future goals for the IEHA. [...]
