  3. 3. Britain c. 1760 Historians: Was there an Industrial “Revolution”? beginnings
  4. 4. • Lots of Rivers • Cheap, easy transportation • Water power • Coal • Iron • Sheep (imported in 16th century) Natural Advantages Why Britain?
  5. 5. • National Bank • Chartered 1694 • No NB in France • Source of capital • Private Property Rights • Aristocrats invested in commerce/industry • Not so in France • Canals • Invention Human Advantages Why Britain?
  6. 6. Why Britain??? Natural Advantages Human Advantages Rivers Canals Coal Free Market Economy Iron Capital Sheep National Bank Private Property Rights Enclosures

  8. 8. Water Frame Richard Arkwright - 1768 Held several hundred spindles and required water power to operate
  9. 9. MILLS The Water Frame could not be operated from home. Mills, housing thousands dozens of water frames, were built near rivers.
  10. 10. Water Power Water power is finite – only so many water frames could be built, and only by major rivers. Goods still produced on a small scale in the countryside.

  12. 12. Luddites Ned Ludd Mythical forest dweller Luddites smashed frames that made automated weaving possible. Modern Usage: Anti-technology Smashing is what Luddites do best!
  13. 13. Scottish universities emphasized science and the mechanical arts. Oxford and Cambridge emphasized theology and the humanities.
  14. 14. 1705 First experimental steam engine invented 1769 James Watt (U. of Glasgow) made the existing steam engine (which was being used at Scottish universities for experiments) more efficient. 1770s Steam engine becomes a major producer of power. A preserved Watt engine at Loughborough University Watt E=mc2 Steam Engine
  15. 15. The development of the steam engine allowed people to build factories anywhere. Many factories popped up in cities, such as Manchester and Liverpool.
  16. 16. Alexis de Tocqueville  Journeys to England and Ireland  Visiting Manchester
  17. 17. 1825 – Liverpool to Manchester Railway 1830 – The Rocket clocked a record 16 MPH. Transportation of goods was still a problem until railroads were developed. Railroads
  18. 18. Railroads Goods can now be produced and transported in mass quantities.
  19. 19. The Malthusian Dilemma Thomas Malthus, Essay on the Principle of Population (1798) Malthus Food supply growth is arithmetic, but population growth is geometric.
  20. 20. Population Growth D. Ricardo, Iron Law of Wages Higher wages will only result in population growth. Therefore, workers should only be paid subsistence wages.
  21. 21. “Dismal Science” Malthus and Ricardo cause others, such as Thomas Carlyle, to refer to economics as the “dismal science.” Their theories were correct in the short run, but wrong in the long run. Production Possibilities Curve (Next Slide)
  22. 22. Production Possibilities Curve A good explanation of the PPC can be found here. New technology can make production (including food) more efficient. http://www.pcecon.com/notes/prodposs.html
