Historical Analysis of Narrations on Economic Action
The main aim of this paper is to explain the importance of narrative texts, and oral history collections for analyzing Iran economic history. Emphasizing oral narratives on economic subjects indicates that to what extent these narratives might clarify some vague economic issues in Iranian economic history. The narratives of industrialists, traders, technocrats and entrepreneurs on economic events could shed light not only on new issues for further research but also these new narratives opened up the analysis of issues that closed their case. In addition, since description and analysis in economic history could use other disciplines such as social and political history in order to explain narratives of other collections, this, in return, might enrich the analysis of narratives. The paper is also probed to explain the characteristics and role of Iranian family capitalism using oral narratives of industrialists, traders, technocrats and entrepreneurs. Their narratives indicated that family firms have moved safely to the second generation because of keeping family ties more than finding ways to expand economic and maximizing activities and trusting family members more than non-members. Based on some oral narratives, the paper attempts to show how charitable actions and social responsibility in these family firms expanded along with their beneficial activities.
