UC Davis Economist Receives Grant to Study International Integration since 1870

UC Davis Economist Christopher Meissner along with Dennis Novy (Warwick University, UK) and David Jacks (Simon Fraser Canada and Davis PhD) were awarded a grant for $167,000 from the United Kingdom's Economic and Social Research Council. The grant is to explore international trade integration with new methods and new data extending back to 1870 and covering two large trade booms and one large trade bust. The grant will run two years culminating with a conference on integration in Venice, Italy in June 2010.
