In March 2018, Professors Lee Alston, John Nye, and Barry Weingast will host a conference, sponsored by the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, to reflect on the impact of North’s work on the discipline. The conference will be structured around five key periods in North’s career: 1) Cliometrics and Measurement; 2) Relative Prices, Property Rights, and Transaction Costs; 3) Institutions; 4) Belief and Cognition; and 5) Violence. Each theme will have a keynote lecture and a series of paper presentations.
