Felix SchaffLondon School of Economics
I am a final-year PhD student in economic history at the London School of Economics. My main research interests are in the fields of economic inequality and social mobility, political economy, and applied econometrics. I study historical wealth inequality in Europe. I focus on inequality in the very long run, 14th-19 centuries. I try to find answers to a major puzzle in economic history: why was economic inequality already high when industrialisation and modern economic growth began?
