Britain’s political economies: parliament and economic life, 1660-1800

In recent years a number of historians have refreshed old accounts of the significance of ‘mercantilism’ to Britain’s early industrial revolution. They have argued for the importance of central government action, especially through warfare, empire, and protectionism. In this they have built upon literature from the 1980s and 1990s about Britain’s success as a ‘fiscal-military state’. My paper questions these interpretations by looking comprehensively at what parliament legislated upon with regard to economic life. I will show that much economic legislation was personal and local in its concerns, requiring a more ‘de-centred’ view of political economy as practice. Additionally, general economic legislation was often less effective than is commonly argued and liable to be obeyed more in some places than in others. Britain’s state was far from homogenous and lacked effective means of enforcement, making it ultimately highly dependent upon building legitimacy and local elites.

The dreadful monster and its poor relations: Britain as a union state, 1707-1914

In 1707 the parliament at Edinburgh was swallowed by the Westminster parliament. In 1801 the same thing happened to the parliament at Dublin, though on different terms. These were key moments in the development of the United Kingdom. This paper considers the financial relations of the union state. In both Scotland and Ireland, England was likened to a dreadful monster in its demands for more and more money. In England, there was a tendency to view their new partners as poor relations, constantly begging for aid. But while Scotland gradually became broadly content with the fiscal union, Ireland never did. This paper considers the flows of money between the nations of the UK and the debates those flows prompted.
