The most recent work here is on 'absorptive capacity' with collaborators from Ghent University. A second area of substantial research relates to economic development in China and Japan during the early modern period (18th and 19th centuries), especially the dynamics of market integration. Completed papers on Chinese disintegration are available here and here. A third area relates to the analysis of financial crises since the 19th century (research in progress).
