Title : We are Ninjas: How Economic History has Infiltrated Economics

Author(s) : Claude Diebolt, Michael Haupert

Abstract : We look at the evolution of the economic history discipline over the past century and note its growth, decline, and acceptance as a tool, but less so as a separate discipline. We contend that this has not led to the end of the discipline, but its acceptance as a standard part of the lexicon.

Key-words : Economics, Economic History, Cliometrics.

JEL Classification : BO, NO.
