New platform for analysing global trade in the last two centuries
Researchers for the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M), in collaboration with the University of
Pisa (Italy), have created an interactive geo-referenced database which is able to analyse global trade
in the last two centuries. Thanks to this new platform it is possible to more accurately assign a date to
the first economic globalisation, which occurred much earlier than previously thought: in the 1830s.
