My research is now focused on the history of economics, though I have in the past published in other areas, including the economics of technical change, the economics of labour managed firms, and international economics. I have published three books and various articles and reviews in journals and edited volumes. I am Vice-President of the European Society for the History of Economic Thought, I am on the editorial advisory board of History of Political Economy, History of Economic Ideas, and the Journal of the History of Economic Thought, and have held visiting posts at Duke University (North Carolina) and at Chuo University (Tokyo). I maintain a set of Web documents for the history of economics.

Some documents are available as .pdf files. Acrobat reader is needed - download it free from here.
