Ever since trade, migration, and finance sutured the world together into one unit, people have been debating the rewards and risks of togetherness. This talk explores the main lines of argument about what it has meant to need strangers, their resources, their labour, and their ideas – and what it has meant for them to need “us.” Since the early nineteenth century, these arguments about interdependence have defined the meaning of modern life at a world scale. Some perspective on them will help understand the distempers of our own times.

This talk is part of the Core Seminar in Economic and Social History series.
