World Economic History in 16 pages

Gregory Clarkof Univ of California Davis had written a very famous & much discussed book on econ history – A farewell to Alms: A Brief Economic History of the World.

The opening chapter of the book is available for a free download and is boldly titled as a 16 page economic history of the world. Well, it isn’t bold at all and does full justice to the title. It tells you much about world economic history from economic life to 1800, Industrial revolution (1800-1900) , Great Divergence, Rise of Wealth and Decline of Economics (1900 – till now).

Highly recommended reading.
