The Priority Programme aims at a close integration of historical and economic methods. Three questions dominate our research:
- how does historical experience shape expectations of the future?
- do expectations change across space and/or time because of differences in culture, institutions, or technology?
- how do expectations change in the short term due to economic crises or exogenous shocks?
The common goal of our interdisciplinary approach is to contribute to the theory of economic expectations by studying historical processes of expectation formation. A central task of this programme is to identify new historical sources which will help us reconstruct empirically processes of expectation formation, and to implement new methods for their analysis.
