Abstract

This contribution shows that the same kind of debate regarding the link between history and contemporaneous economics sparks off in quantitative history. Indeed, Cliometrics can be seen a way of (re-)investigating historic issues via the use of econometric techniques and economic theory. The text presents the main methodological features of this new discipline and its outstanding achievement – the development of a scientific human and social science. Even if the author seems to be inclined towards a conception of cliometrics as a full-fledged field of economic theory, his conclusion remains more general: he encourages economists to pay attention to the past in dealing with current economic issues.
