Un ciclo finaliza y otro comienza. Es con sentimientos encontrados que comparto la noticia de que por cuestiones personales y organizacionales he decidido dejar de ser editor de las redes sociales de la Asociación Mexicana de Historia Económica (AMHE), función que ocupé desde marzo de 2007. / A cycle ends, another cycle begins. It is with a heavy heart that I share the news that for personal and organizational reasons I have decided to resign the position as editor of the social networks of the Mexican Economic History Association (AMHE), which I held since March 2007. / Un cycle se termine, un autre cycle recommence. C’est avec des sentiments troublants que je partage les nouvelles que pour des raisons personnelles et d’organisation, j’ai décidé de démissionner du poste de rédacteur des réseaux sociaux de l’Association Mexicaine d’Histoire Économique (AMHE), une poste que je tenais depuis Mars 2007. / Ein Zyklus endet und eine andere beginnt.

Some resources on the history of commodities (with a Latin American bias)

  • Jonathan Curry-Machado (ed.). Global Histories, Imperial Commodities, Local Interactions.
  • Curry-Machado is the coordinator of a very interesting British project, Commodity Histories.
  • Commodities in World History, 1450-1950, a website from UC Santa Cruz put together under the supervision of Edmund Burke III.
  • Commodities and Anticommodities Project.
  • Global Commodities / Trade, Exploration and Cultural Exchange, http://www.globalcommodities.amdigital.co.uk/ and http://www.amdigital.co.uk/m-collections/collection/global-commodities/
  • For the twentieth century economic history of Latin American commodities, see José Antonio Ocampo and María Angela Parra. Returning to an Eternal Debate: The Terms of Trade for Commodities in the Twentieth Century.
  • For a cultural approach, see Arjun Appadurai. The Social Life of Things: Commodities in Cultural Perspective.
  • And the best for the last. From Latin American economic history in the long-run, with a great introduction framing the theoretical issues at hand: Steven Topik, Carlos Marichal, Zephyr Frank. From Silver to Cocaine: Latin American Commodity Chains and the Building of the World Economy, 1500-2000. Best book in the market on the issue from a regional perspective.

“Empire State of Mind”: The Land Value of Manhattan, 1950-2013

IT’S BOTH CURVES IN THE REAL ESTATE MARKET DIAGRAM, STUPID: HISTORY, SUPPLY- AND DEMAND-SIDE HOUSING POLICIES IN MANHATTAN. MY BLOG POST FOR NEP-HIS THIS WEEK. In an island worth $825 billion dollars, a mixture of technical expertise and political willingness to act both in favor of people’s right to a decent home on the demand-side and against created interests on the supply-side are rather necessary to solve the urgent housing problems of New York City, which have only aggravated since the beginning of the Great Recession.
