Abstract

This article examines where consensus does and does not exist among American economic historians by analyzing the results of a questionnaire mailed to 178 randomly selected members of the Economic History Association. The questions address many of the important debates in American economic history. The answers show consensus on a number of issues, but substantial disagreement in many areas--including the causes of the Great Depression and the aftermath of emancipation. They also expose some areas of disagreement between historians and economists.
