New Blog of Interest: Positive Check from the EHES

The European Historical Economics Society (EHES) has recently started a blog, called "Positive Check" (after the concept advanced by Thomas Malthus). Its aim is "to promote European research and training in economic history." It publishes posts from events organized by the Society, articles published in the journal European Review of Economic History, interviews with leading scholars in economic history, and other news related to the Society's aims and those of its members. Recent posts include a Q&A with Dan Bogart of UC-Irvine, incoming co-editor of the European Review of Economic History, and a summary of a new working paper by Natacha Postal-Vinay. The editor of the blog is Kerstin Enflo of Lund University.
