Discontinuity and Economic Development. A New Approach to the Modern Economic History of the Polish Lands in the 19th and 20th century
During my stay in Vienna I want to offer a new interpretation of the modern economic history of the Polish lands–the former territory of the Kingdom of Poland, partitioned by Austria, Russia and Prussia, reunited in 1918 as the 2nd Republic of Poland and reshaped after WWII. The axis of my interpretation is a ‘discontinuity’ (of institutions, of the economy, and of the society), which determined the periods of economic and civilizational convergence and divergence with the Western core during the last two centuries.
