The Executive Summary - 3/1 - 3/5

Ashton Merck's picture

A weekly feature with a roundup of articles and other materials of interest to scholars of business and economic history.


BHC members, have you registered for the annual meeting yet?

I'd also like to draw everyone's attention to the next few sessions of the Business History Collective's Global series (which, full disclosure, I helped organize):

  • March 9: "Gender differential and financial inclusion in Spain: Female shareholders of Banco Hispano Americano (1922-1935)," Susana Martínez-Rodríguez and Carmen María Hernández-Nicolás (University of Murcia) (Register here)
  • March 23: "Benefits offered by historical explanation to statistical studies in strategic management," Sandeep Pillai (Bocconi University), Brent Goldfarb, and David Kirsch (University of Maryland) (Register here)

These sessions clock in at just under an hour; they're oddly refreshing in a time of so much zoom fatigue. If these topics don't intrigue you, there's plenty more sessions to come; check them all out (and consider exploring the Iberoamerica series as well) on their main page.


If you haven't already, you can catch up on my conversations with Marc Levinson and Marcia Chatelain over at the Executive Summary. Listen on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Stitcher. New episodes coming later this month!


As always, send suggestions, leads, and other ideas for this section to Associate Editor Ashton Merck (@awmerck).
