Call for papers for BHC Panel on the financial history of capital markets in 19th and 20th centuries, such as: relationships between market organizations and state action/policies; financial markets and regulatory capture; development of stock ownership--dispersion and concentration; equity vs. debt as source of capital; determinants of capital flows. Panel organizer's recent research has dealt with development of French and American markets for railroad capital, 1840-1940. My proposed paper for Business History Conference will deal with ways in which market organizations (financial intermediaries) differentially affected state behavior in France and the U.S., 1840 to 1970.
I would prefer to submit a panel with a common theme, rather than an "orphan" paper. If you would like to join a panel on financial history, proposals are due to BHC by October 1. So kindly contact me asap with an abstract of your proposed paper. firstname.lastname@example.org; with cc. to email@example.com Telephone: 212-569-0702.
