Une large part de l'activité humaine est consacrée à la production, à la distribution et à l'utilisation de ressources rares permettant la satisfaction des besoins individuels et sociaux. L'histoire économique est la branche de l'histoire qui étudie ces activités. Outre leur dimension économique, celles-ci influent sur toutes les facettes de la vie humaine. La révolution industrielle fournit une bonne illustration : la mise en place des usines suite à la domestication de la vapeur, l'importance grandissante du monde ouvrier, la diffusion de nouveaux biens de consommation ont donné une inflexion décisive à l'histoire culturelle, l'histoire politique et l'histoire sociale. L'historien ne peut donc négliger l'histoire économique. L'économiste, quant à lui, entretient avec l'histoire économique un rapport plus ambigu. En tant que science consacrée à la détermination des régularités qui régissent les activités économiques, l'économie devrait ménager une large place à l'histoire économique, puisque celle-ci porte sur l'étude empirique des activités économiques. L'histoire économique reste pourtant souvent reléguée à la vérification des théories et des concepts construits dans l'abstraction. Il arrive même qu'on reproche à l'économie de totalement négliger l'histoire, alors que cette dernière devrait jouer un rôle important dans la construction des théories économiques (...).
