Commercial Banks and Industrial Finance in England and Wales, 1860-1913

Michael Collins and Mae Baker

  • An understanding of the nature of the historical relationship between bankers and industrialists is a key factor in explaining the dynamics of the British economy in the early twentieth century.
  • Examines the controversial claim that deficiencies in the financial provision from banks to British industry handicapped Britain's competitive advantage in world markets.
  • Contains new data from contemporary records and micro-economic studies, and uses these to present an economic rationale for historical bank behaviour.
