EABH Meeting Program Available

The program for the 2015 annual meeting of the European Association for Banking and Financial History (EABH) has now been posted. The meeting will be held on May 15, 2015 at the Czech National Bank, CNB Congress Centre, in Prague, Czech Republic, in cooperation with the Czech National Bank and the Czech Banking Association. The theme of the meeting is "Inflation in History, the History of Inflation." As the organizers state,
In this meeting we want to gain a better understanding of what is actually available in financial institutions' archives, and to identify promising areas for future research or action. The objective is to look at what is new about inflation. Can historical instances of inflation provide tools for a better understanding of modern developments? Should present day monetary authorities and decision takers be aware of these lessons as they cope with the challenges for the global economy?
