Abstract

In the introduction, different contributions are brought together in an analysis of pre-industrial living standards in East and West, viewed in the light of the general debate on these issues from the classical economists to present times. The general picture emerging is not one of great divergence, but instead one of considerable similarities. Regional differences within Europe or Asia were often larger than the average differences between them.
