The conference addresses the intellectual foundations of modern economic growth and global economic inequality since the past millennium. Recent years have seen heated debates on the nature, causes and origins of this ‘Great Divergence’, a process of progressive global inequality between the ‘East’ and the ‘West’ since about 1700 or 1800 A.D. Only little has been said on the intellectual roots of this divergence. What about the economic ideas that underlined, accompanied and girded processes of growth and development, industrialization and uneven global development? What made some of us rich whilst making others poorer? The conference seeks new answers, narratives and perspectives on one of the most fundamental transformations in recorded human history: Europe’s Road to Wealth in global perspective.
