Progress and Poverty: An Economic and Social History of Britain, 1700-1850

By M. J. Daunton | Go to book overview

Yorkshire; the erosion of artisan production and a slide into sweat-shops in some London trades; and the emergence of coal-based industries in the north-east, south Wales, the Mersey, and the Clyde. This matrix of industrialization affected the labour market and the gender division of work; influenced patterns of income distribution; shaped demographic behaviour; created a greater or lesser susceptibility to cyclical or seasonal depression; and determined the relations between merchants, financiers, and producers according to the needs for fixed capital or credit.
