Economic history is the branch of history that deals with a very broad range of topics related to economics, including agriculture, trade, transportation, finance, economic growth, government regulation, wealth creation and inequality, use of natural resources, impact on the environment, business history and labor history, as well as the history of economic ideas and their implementation in public policy.

There are many scholarly monographs, articles, and popular books on these subjects. The leading scholarly journals are the Journal of Economic History, published in the U.S., and the Economic History Review, published in Britain.
