In world history markets have taken a plurality of shapes in terms of their routines, pricing procedures and other features. Among the key themes of interest are: How have specific markets emerged? What role have (national) institution building, codified legal systems, property rights and commercial/business culture played in the formation of markets? How do institutional specificities influence the allocation of resources and the determination of prices? In what ways do markets play a decisive part in determining alternative political economies?
