Brad de Long on importance of economic history

What a great idea - instead of the morning blog, speak to your Mac, get Macspeech to transcribe it and hey presto - your favorite topic of the day is ready for viewing and reading.

Now, this particular topic has definitely got my attantion. I fully endorse the move to get students and practitioners of different disciplines to appreciate each others contribution to a chosen topic. This time he argued for closer collaboration and deeper links between historians and economists.

Of course, this is critically true for many other disciplines. It would be interesting to explore which other academic fields might be similarly enriched by cross-fertilisation.
