Deputy Director of the MISO, Ekaterina Svirina took part in the international workshop “The Variety of Exchange and the Character of Money”, which was held on the 17-18th of May, 2018 at the Ecole Normale Supérieure, in Paris.

The workshop was a pre-discussion platform of main session of the World Congress on Economic History, to be held on August 2 in Boston. The main purpose of the round table was to discuss the hypothesis of the existence of two binary characteristics (anonymous / not anonymous, with intermediaries / without intermediaries) that determine the choice of means of exchange - money - in trade in the historical context. The hypothesis was tested on the example of different territories and periods: Argentina (2003 - 2004), Siberian region of the Russian Empire (XVIII-XIX centuries), colonial Africa (XXth century), Great Britain (XVII-XIX centuries), China (XX century) and Japan (XX century).
