  • In this response, we demonstrate that Mauricio Drelichman and Hans-Joachim Voth,
    in their 2015 Economic History Review note ‘Duplication without constraints: A´ lvarez-
    Nogal and Chamley"s analysis of debt policy under Philip II", provide a misconceived
    and inaccurate account of our argument about the finances of Philip II in ‘Debt policy
    under constraints: Philip II, the Cortes, and Genoese bankers" (Economic History
    Review, 2014).Here,we summarize our position in the context of the current literature
    and provide a few comments on data gathering.
