Summary: Professor Mark Thomas gives the first in a three-part lecture series on the use of social accounting in the study of the Atlantic economy.

Three public lectures will be given by Professor Mark Thomas, project director for the CAGE project: "Social Accounting in a Historical Context: Modelling the Altantic Economy 1850 -1940", which is being financed by the Leverhulme Trust.

The first lecture, "Modelling the Atlantic Economy: A Social Accounting Approach, 1850-1940", will discuss the advantages derived from the historical application of social accounting techniques for a deeper understanding of the patterns and processes of development in Britain, the United States and the Atlantic economy between 1850 and 1940.
