Salutary neglect was an unofficial British policy in the colonies that greatly affected Massachusetts in 18th century. The policy was an intentional lack of enforcement by the British government of British trade laws in the American colonies.
However, although Engels wrote in the s, his book was not translated into English until the late s, and his expression did not enter everyday language until then. Credit for popularising the term may be given to Arnold Toynbeewhose lectures gave a detailed account of the term.
This is still a subject of debate among some historians. Important technological developments The commencement of the Industrial Revolution is closely linked to a small number of innovations,  beginning in the second half of the 18th century.
By the s the following gains had been made in important technologies: Textiles — mechanised cotton spinning powered by steam or water increased the output of a worker by a factor of around The power loom increased the output of a worker by a factor of over The adaptation of stationary steam engines to rotary motion made them suitable for industrial uses.
Iron making — the substitution of coke for charcoal greatly lowered the fuel cost of pig iron and wrought iron production. The steam engine began being used to pump water to power blast air in the mid s, enabling a large increase in iron production by overcoming the limitation of water power.
It was later improved by making it double acting, which allowed higher blast furnace temperatures.
The puddling process produced a structural grade iron at a lower cost than the finery forge. Hot blast greatly increased fuel efficiency in iron production in the following decades.
Invention of machine tools — The first machine tools were invented. These included the screw cutting lathecylinder boring machine and the milling machine. Machine tools made the economical manufacture of precision metal parts possible, although it took several decades to develop effective techniques.
Textile manufacture during the Industrial Revolution British textile industry statistics In Britain imported 2. In raw cotton consumption was 22 million pounds, most of which was cleaned, carded and spun on machines.
Value added by the British woollen industry was Cotton factories in Britain numbered approximately in In approximately one-third of cotton cloth manufactured in Britain was exported, rising to two-thirds by In cotton spun amounted to 5.
In less than 0. In there were 50, spindles in Britain, rising to 7 million over the next 30 years. In tropical and subtropical regions where it was grown, most was grown by small farmers alongside their food crops and was spun and woven in households, largely for domestic consumption.
In the 15th century China began to require households to pay part of their taxes in cotton cloth. By the 17th century almost all Chinese wore cotton clothing.
Almost everywhere cotton cloth could be used as a medium of exchange. In India a significant amount of cotton textiles were manufactured for distant markets, often produced by professional weavers.
Some merchants also owned small weaving workshops. India produced a variety of cotton cloth, some of exceptionally fine quality.The Industrial Revolution was the transition to new manufacturing processes in the period from about to sometime between and This transition included going from hand production methods to machines, new chemical manufacturing and iron production processes, the increasing use of steam power, the development of machine tools and the rise of the factory system.
The history of Scotland is known to have begun by the end of the last glacial period (in the paleolithic), roughly 10, years ago.
Prehistoric Scotland entered the Neolithic Era about BC, the Bronze Age about BC, and the Iron Age around BC. Scotland's recorded history began with the arrival of the Roman Empire in the 1st century, when the province of Britannia reached as far.
This article discusses the political foundations and history of liberalism from the 17th century to the present. This challenge was a significant factor in the great revolutions that rocked England and France in the 17th and 18th centuries—most notably the English Civil Their advice to government was “laissez faire, laissez passer.
Quesnay coined the phrases laissez-faire and laissez-passer, had been coined [by whom?] as early as the 17th century,  but the French phrase laissez-faire gained currency in English-speaking countries with the spread of Physiocratic literature in the late 18th century.
Liberalism: Liberalism is a political doctrine that takes protecting and enhancing individual freedom to be the central problem of politics. Laissez-faire policy has always been a fundamental principle of the federal government.
Between the years of and , the government’s role seems to be very small. New government policies are almost nonexistent and the few policies they enforced were standard government administration.
