Article
Full-text available
Economic growth and welfare are increasingly understood as flip sides of the same coin. This is apparent in the increasing study of economic and social inequalities as well as of the non-economic aspects of welfare. Much less attention is paid to the economic dynamics of historical societies at the level of the individual and the household. Unlike...
Article
Full-text available

The social returns of the economically favourable social-institutional constellations that facilitated...
Article
This paper studies the welfare effects of economic growth in the early modern Low Countries. It applies the recently developed concept of ‘real inequality’ to a case study of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century ‘s-Hertogenbosch in the Southern Netherlands and demonstrates, by incorporating relative price movements, that specific (and in this case st...
Article
Full-text available
Economic historians are increasingly aware of the divergence between the development of real wages and GDP per capita in pre-industrial Europe, even in affluent urbanized societies with high wage levels such as the sixteenth-century Low Countries.

Article
Full-text available
Thanks to a number of superb archival sources, sixteenth-century 's-Hertogenbosch comprises a first-rate test case for the study of pre-industrial social stratification, inequality and mobility in a typical urban context. This essay especially draws attention to the concept of 'social class', and advocates, firstly, that it can only be meaningfully...
Article

This article presents an in-depth analysis of the annuity market of the early sixteenth-century city of ’s-Hertogenbosch and its surroundings in order to address the question of pre-industrial capital market efficiency. It is argued that this particular capital market was indeed relatively proficient in terms of operational, allocational and pricin...
