Promotie

Coercion (negative incentives aimed at influencing peoples choices) and integration are two widely used ways of reducing transaction costs. Guilherme de Oliveira uses three historical episodes to establish causal relations between coercion and integration. His case studies focus on the Italian Unification, the relation between slavery and labour in Ancient Rome and in the colonial-era Americas, and sharecropping in the US South.
