Example text

4 These trends provide essential clues as to the next great change in the political economy of trade, the shift to free trade in the 1840s. Part of this shift was an awareness of the stickiness of exports to Europe, the lack of return goods in payment for British exports, and even apprehension that Europe would industrialize behind tariff barriers. Part, too, came from a desire to even out the pattern of boom and slump which had become marked in the 1830s and had led, between 1837 and 1842, to the greatest depression of the nineteenth century.

As a result, Europe was bound together by these mutually interlocking treaties into a low-tariff bloc, arguably the nearest she got to a common market before the 1970s. Russia still lay outside this network, but Western Europe had become an economic whole in a new way and, as in the twentieth century, much trade was between relatively advanced economies. Such treaties should be interpreted not simply as part of a narrow process of commercial bargaining nor as an attempt at British domination of Europe by means of an entente commerciale.

Deane, Abstract of British Historical Statistics (1962), A. H. Imlah, Economic Elements in the Pax Britannica: Studies in British Foreign Trade in the Nineteenth Century (1958), and B. R. Mitchell, British Historical Statistics (1988), to which I. Stone, The Global Export of Capital from Great Britain, 1865–1914 (1999) is a valuable addition. Particular issues are dealt with in F.
