RICardo Workshop 2017 Report

The first RICardo workshop was organized in Paris on 12 May 2017 to celebrate the official launching of the RICardo website on the bicentenary of David Ricardo’s Principles of Political Economy and Taxation. It gathered the members of the newly created RICardo committee to discuss a number of methodological questions pertaining to historical trade statistics and their exploitation with digital technology. This meeting was an opportunity to exchange views on challenging questions that each trade database builder has to face and answer. A list of discussion points was submitted to the committee. The outcome of our discussions is intended to help both the inexpert and the scholar user to better know and utilize trade data and the RICardo website. Continuer la lecture
