The Economics of World War I
To commemorate the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War, Vox will be publishing a series of articles over the coming year on the economics of the conflict itself, as well as on its causes and consequences. These will eventually be published in a Vox eBook, “The Economics of the First World War”, edited by Nicholas Crafts, Kevin Hjortshøj O’Rourke and Alan M. Taylor.
