In this handbook, Victor Ginsburgh and Shlomo
Weber bring together methodological, theoretical, and empirical studies in the
economics of language in a single framework of linguistic diversity that
reflects the history and contemporary study of the topic. The impact of linguistic
diversity on economic outcomes and public policies has been studied not only by
economists and other social scientists in the contemporary era, but all the way
back to the 19th century by geographer and naturalist, Alexander von Humboldt,
who emphasized the importance of language in the framework of cultural
This interdependence of language and culture is
reflected in the chapters in this handbook, which have been written by leading
economists, linguists, and political scientists from universities in the United
States, Australia, Russia, Israel, the United Kingdom, France, Spain, Belgium,
Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, Finland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic. The contributions
are divided into four parts. Part I examines linguistic concepts that forge common
ground between economists, political scientists, sociologists, and linguists,
and introduces the notion of linguistic proximity extensively utilized in
various chapters of the volume. Part II assesses the impact of languages on
market interactions, including international trade, patent protection,
migration, and use of languages in ancient and modern business environments.
Part III focuses on the link between linguistic policies and economic
development, including the analysis of regional development in Asia, Africa, Europe
and Russia. Part IV addresses issues of globalization, minority languages, and the
protection of linguistic rights in multilingual societies.
