Sample text

Firstly, the rate of growth of her trade slowed down, notably more sharply than that of other nations which were beginning a period of rapid industrialization. As a result she now encountered stiffer competition in world markets. Secondly, whether as cause or effect of her relative industrial slowdown, British capital was now exported abroad in far greater amounts, and in a way that most clearly demarcates this phase of Britain’s relationship with the world economy. These two factors together gave rise to Clapham’s famous metaphor of the ‘Gigantic Hinge’ switching the basis of economic life from the industrial North to the rentier South, from manufacturing industry to international finance.

2,000 m by 1900 although this would pale by comparison with the subsequent further £1,500–2,000 m between 1900 and 1913. Growth was not continuous but normally came in ‘short bursts’, with peaks in the early 1870s and late 1880s. 2 shows, export of capital to the British empire, particularly India and the settlement empire, was the most marked characteristic of the movement of capital in this period (as it was to be between 1900 and 1913). Europe itself greatly diminished its share of the market, while the USA and particularly Argentina remained important.

War also had other profound consequences for Britain’s relationship with the world economy. Firstly, with Amsterdam overrun by patriots and liberators, London now became the financial centre of the world, just as in the First World War she would lose this primacy to New York. This was in part occasioned by the need to fund Britain’s allies, with huge subsidies distributed over Europe in the form of loans and advances, providing profits for enterprising financiers. At the same time, facilitated by legislation such as the Warehousing Act of 1804, London became the ‘warehouse of the world’ and increasingly the centre for shipping and insurance, the sources of much future national wealth.
