WHO – We are a group of economists and economic historians who like to think about the Portuguese economy in an international context;
WHAT – We deal with the Portuguese economy and her troubles to catch-up to her neighbours' levels of income per capita;
WHERE – We are based in universities in a few countries across the Globe, namely, in Portugal, Canada, the US, Spain and Britain;
WHEN – We deal mainly with present times, but also with bits of historical perspective;
WHY - The Portuguese economy is an interesting topic for many reasons: it is small, but it is neither Belgium, Greece or, for that matter, Andalusia; it is developed and yet still not fully developed. Lessons for European economic integration abound.
