Economic Inequality in Preindustrial Times: Europe and Beyond

Oxford-Virginia Legal Dialogs
Friday, May 24, 2024 10:00 - Friday, May 24, 2024 11:30

The Oxford-Virginia Legal Dialogs series continues with a presentation of “Economic Inequality in Preindustrial Times: Europe and Beyond,” 59 Journal of Economic Literature 3 (March 2021) by Guido Alfani, a professor of economic history at Bocconi University, with comments by Ted Seto, a Loyola Law School professor focused on tax. 

In an environment of increasing academic specialization, Oxford-Virginia Legal Dialogs seeks to build bridges across academic disciplines by introducing a new kind of workshop. For each session, a tax scholar will select a non-tax, but law-related, work that is prominent in its own field and explain how the work is relevant to the study of taxation. The author of the work will then respond before we open the session to questions and discussion by workshop attendees. All sessions will take place on Zoom, and the work to be discussed will be distributed on seminar webpage or by email to registrants.
