Conference Report: Economic Liberalism in the Americas

Citation: Toner, Deborah (2012) Conference Report: Economic Liberalism in the Americas. In: Economic Liberalism in the Americas, 6 June 2012, Senate House, London. (Unpublished)

Liberal economic principles and policies were often at odds with politically liberal agendas across the Americas in the nineteenth century. This workshop examined debates surrounding the definition and application of liberal economic ideas in a comparative context, to establish what local, regional, national and transnational factors shaped economic development in different parts of the Americas during the nineteenth and early twentieth century. The workshop focused on issues such as land ownership, banking, monetary and taxation systems, international trade, and international finance, and will compare case studies from Mexico, Argentina, Peru and the United States in the context of the broader international and global situation.
