Entrepreneurial innovations and laborsaving technology which produced The Industrial Revolution quotEurocentricquot Story 0 Industrial revolution emerged after the creation of a successful capitalist system in England and spread to other parts of Europe and the United States 0 But did it emerge necessarily because ofthis developing capitalist system 0 Was the quotRise of the West a quotmiraclequot wherein certain cultural and economic conditions produced an industrial society superior to other parts of the world Why not China 0 As late as 1800 China had achieved a level of per capita growth and development equivalent to England 0 China had efficient functioning markets but did not industrialize 0 Serious ecological obstacles to further growth in England and China as well limits of quotold biological regime Divergence between England and China due mainly to quotcoal and colonies Great Divergence 0 Industrial revolution took the form of capitalism as it had developed in England but was not necessarily the result of that particular kind of capitalism 0 Coal and colonies were necessary for helping Britain escape the limits imposed by the biological old regime while China and Asia remained bound by it 0 These quotlandsaving developments were as important as quotlaborsaving developments in producing the industrial revolution 0 Growth of cotton textile industry and spread of steam power technology to other manufacturing and transportation ie railways steamships industries led to a broader industrial revolution and set in motion globalizing forces Newcomb Steam Engine 1712

economic systems made the lives of individuals better Terms Mercantilism was from the 1500s to the 1800s which involved the economy s subservience to the needs of the state These nations strove for protectionism a positive balance of trade the accumulation of gold and a global system in which colonies primary job was to supply natural resources to the factories of the home country On nations gain is another nation s loss Corn Laws were repealed in 1846 which ended protectionism and mercantilism Corn Laws protected farmers with very high tariffs on imported grain and farmers argued that repeal of the laws would doom British farming Supporters of the laws invoked the desirability of selfsufficiency in food the importance of farming to the British way of life Protectionism in the 1800s was based on how the nation created high tariffs and strict regulations on imports whereas local prices could be kept high Though most believe protectionism is harmful creating more negatives than positives and impeding countries to grow economically Adam Smith was a strong antiprotectionism supporter William Jennings Bryan was a Nebraska congressman and in the early 1900s was against the gold standard and promoted the silverite movement in the 1890s He ran for the democratic presidency three times from the 1890s to 1910 He was a strong supporter of the SpanishAmerican War PriceSpecie Flow termed by Scottish philosopher David Hume and was during the 1700s to the 1900s Nations that imported too much must restrain domestic spending to compensate for the gold loss The consequence was governments were incapable of responding to financial crisis through economic stimulus John D Rockefeller in 1959 formed a partnership in 1965 he bought out his partner in the Ohio refinery business and in 1970 he incorporated Standard Oil He was dominating in Cleveland Ohio and he aimed to consolidate the refinery business into a horizontal monopoly Treaty of Versailles was signed in 1919 at the Paris Peace Conference which ended the war between Germany and the Allied Powers One of the most controversial stipulations of this treaty was that Germany had to admit fault for the war This was during Woodrow Wilson s term as President and he was concerned with the rebuilding of Europe s economy rather than harsh treatments for Germany John Maynard Keynes was a Bloomsbury intellectual and critic of the WW1 treaty and economic order from the 1910s to the 1920s He devised economic decisions for government intervention in the economy via fiscal and monetary policy He said governments should use the policies to even out the boom and busts Autarky promoted by Stalin is quality of being selfsufficient forcible separation from the rest of the world In 1808 President Jefferson declared a selfimposed embargo on international shipping bringing America close to complete Autarky Fascism is a form of radical authoritarian nationalism that becomes prominent in Europe around the 1950s This was mainly a political response to the depression and linked to the cause of WW2 with Nazi Germany and Adolf Hitler SmootHawley Act was in 1930 for US protectionism where nations sought to protect domestic industry and agriculture during the Great Depression after WW1 Passed during President Hoover s Presidency seemed to be a success but economies didn t recover and unemployment kept rising Comparative Advantage is a concept where you can produce a particular good or service at a lower marginal and opportunity cost over another Bretton Woods was in 1944 where 700 delegates of 45 nations met at Mt Washington Hotel in Bretton Woods New Hampshire They met to plan a post war world economy before the war ended The four cornerstone agreements that were made were the IMF the World Bank the GATTWTO and the gold standard Marshall Plan was in 1947 passed by congress at President Truman and secretary of state Marshall s request It was meant to lend money to allies to rebuild after the war and speci cally to rebuild European economies so they could purchase American manufactures Third World arose during the Cold War from the 1940s to 1991 to de ne countries that were not aligned with
