Abstract
This study is an examination of the economic history of the Roman Empire and a Comparison of two periods on either side of the Pax Romana. The study explores and evaluates levels of economic developmentand standard of living using various criteria in hopes of determining a link between the two. In finding and describing this relationship, the study also finds several theoretical reasons for the differences in the two factors between different periods. Ultimately increased emperor turnover, taxation, and political instability came out as a few crucial determinants for economic development and standard of living.
