Information

In this Quantitative History Webinar, Professor Zhiwu Chen will trace the changing historical context for the maritime Silk Route over the past 2,000 years. This webinar will be conducted in Putonghua.  

在將近兩千年的發展歷程中,海上絲綢之路經歷了多次變遷:先由南海和東南亞商人主導;公元7世紀末阿拉伯穆斯林商人加入海上絲路,並很快成為主角;到16世紀上半葉,海上絲路改由天主教葡萄牙人當道,更後再變為新教徒荷蘭人、英國人稱雄。為什麼海上絲路歷程中多次易主?為什麼穆斯林商人能後來居上並主宰海上絲路長達七百餘年,但最後卻被人口相對少的葡萄牙取而代之?荷蘭人和英國人的優勢又在哪裡?海上絲路歷史既是中華文明、印度文明、伊斯蘭文明和基督教文明的接觸史,也是它們相互磨合、彼此競爭的歷史。

亞洲環球研究所所長陳志武教授將於今期的量化歷史網上講座中,借助現代經濟學,解讀各文明在資源整合和風險分攤能力上的不同特質與表現,尤其每種文明是如何解決逆向選擇、「搭便車」現象和道德風險問題,以鞏固其商幫信用網絡的可靠度、降低跨期交易成本。陳志武教授會於講座中為大家一一解構不同文明體系的優劣成敗:哪個文明體系能更好解決跨期信用與風險分攤問題,那個文明就能在海上貿易中制勝。海上絲路歷史所折射的不同文明之特質,不僅加深我們對今天世界格局背後來歷的認知,也有利於我們比較及研究制勝技巧,為把握未來作更好準備。
