 Wages and Currency: Global and Historical Comparisons

 Symposium in Amsterdam/Leiden,
24-25 May 2002

 Convenors: International Institute of Social History (IISH), Amsterdam
 and National Collection of Coins and Medals (KPK: Koninklijk
 Penningkabinet), Leiden (in cooperation with 'Labour 1500-2000')

 Money in the form of coins can be used for many purposes. The literature
 tends to concentrate on their use in trade. But there are good reasons
 to assume that coins have been essential for wage payments for thousands

 On the basis of an exploratory study into the situation in the
 Netherlands between 1200 and 2000 (see article) the workshop wants to
 bring together specialists from all parts of the world to examine on the
 basis of concrete case studies to what extent the arguments set out here
 and elaborated for the Netherlands cut any ice, and above all whether a
 refined set of hypotheses can be developed from this work.
