    PC/AHC: Self-Sufficient Free Market Economy

    A common trope I see with highly interventionist and command economies is that they pursue "autarky", aka to rely only on their own resources and not be affected by external trends and blockades This often leads to isolationist policies trying to shield authoritarian nations from the outside...

    AHC: Largest US population but with the same GDP Per capita

    So basically how large can the US population get with the same GDP per capita (around $64,000) by 2020?

    Latest date to save the late Ming Dynasty?

    The late Ming Dyansty, to put it politely...was a mess. Silver inflation from Spain, corruption in the imperial court, economic downturn, incompetent or short-lived emperors, factionalism, eunuchs, peasant revolts, the Japanese, and famines that all showed signs that the Ming Dyansty lost the...

    Economic effects of less Spanish colonization of the Americas?

    The Spanish colonization of the Americas, including the conquests of the Inca, Aztecs and other natives brought great wealth and power to the Spanish Empire. However, that wealth was also a disadvantage, as all that silver caused economic inflation in the Spanish Empire. So what if, Spanish...
  6. AHC: An Irish Economic Miracle

    How can the Republic of Ireland have an economic miracle between the 1940s and the 1970s, similar to that Spain/Sweden/France/Italy etc? With a POD after 1922 how can Ireland initiate a post war economic boom and become more industrialised?

    Hi all. I am looking for some numbers on Oil consumption in WW1. Preferably for all belligerents but particularly for Britain. The closest I have been able to find was a quote from the Wikipedia Article "Economic History of World War 1" which claims (Quoting from The American Petroleum...
  9. A Better Budgeted British WW1

    Lets call it a BBB WW1 because why not? Based on the flurry of recent threads involving a change in US support for the Entente/Aliies. So here is the question: WW1 hurt Britain financially. That much is clear. So, ignoring the occasionally rabid debate over how bad the situation in 1916/1917...

    Longer American Post-War Economic Boom

    What would happen if the post war economic boom in the USA ended in the early 80s instead of the early 70s of OTL. Maybe the US invests a lot in civilian nuclear power and public transportation so the oil shock doesn’t hit the US as hard, or maybe the USD is devalued in the 50s so the US has a...

  12. Was there any struggles between federalist, farmers and others in the democratic party in the 1870s like in the Republican party in 1850s?

  14. Research question about transfer of wealth from the empires

    I read "Between 1865 and 1914, an American "colony" of expatriate businessmen emerged in London that is central to this study. The American "colony" integrated itself within the social and economic networks upon which British imperialism depended and mediated new inter-imperial collaborations."...

  16. WI: Axis countries nationalized all companies right before surrender

    What if in January 1945, the Third Reich and the Empire of Japan both attempted to nationalize all of the companies within their countries? From January to their surrender, they subsume every company within a particular industry (such as automotive manufacture) into one state-owned company for...

Would England send in families or single men ? Would there even be a plantation economy...

    In my TL, West Africa is developing several centuries sooner than it did IOTL due to Carthage winning the 2nd Punic War and spurring a large scale trans-Saharan trade to pay off its wartime debts. I have a sahelian state that spans the Senegal and Niger rivers and I was wondering if it's...

    The challenge is this, can you bring about the same economic exhaustion, that Britain and France experienced, to the United States. Literal bankruptcy is not required. What would it take, would a much more greweling war cause enough damage? Would a more limited war leave unemployment sky high...
