Gidday Tobias. I am also very interested in Roman wealth and indeed the sociology of trade, markets, and the economy in general. What is it about us Aussies and money?
Peter Brown, the tsar of Late Antiquity and a Professor at Princeton, has been working on a book exploring the social and economic history of wealth in the late Roman Empire. I would love to know if anybody here is aware of any journal articles or book chapters of Brown's that might give us a taste of his book. Alternatively, the names of any other economic histories of Rome would be great.
