The History of Capitalism Project at Harvard Business School and Harvard University identifies and supports outstanding scholars whose work responds to the growing interest in the study of global capitalism from a historical perspective. We seek to organize a community of scholars who study aspects of the history of capitalism in all regions of the world and in all chronological periods. Global perspectives are strongly desired, as are contributions from a wide range of variety of disciplines. Hoping to create a global conversation on the history of capitalism, we encourage applicants from diverse backgrounds across the globe, especially from outside Europe and North America.

The research project studies growth and economic development from a micro-level perspective making use of newly collected longitudinal data covering the universe of Swedish manufacturing establishments from the 18th century until the 20th century. These data will be paired with, for example, patent records and individual-level census data to study a set of interrelated questions: i) Why do some firms thrive, while others fail? We study the determinants of firm survival between 1864-1900 focusing in particular on how innovation and the adoption of new technologies affected patterns of firm longevity; ii) Why did firms begin to invent? We analyze the historical shift in innovation from independent inventors to firms, as well as examine its determinants and effects on firm performance; and iii) What determines the adoption of new technologies? We study the determinants of the diffusion of steam and electricity across manufacturing plants, also analyzing the impacts of adoption on employment, productivity, and firm survival.
