Dr. David Johnson


The purpose of this paper is to present with briefness, and yet I hope clarity, a history of the economic development of Great Britain, from its early beginnings through the medeival era and both World Wars. I have attempted to take each period in British economic history, present the economic phenomenon that occurred during the period, and show the causes and results of such phenomenon. I want to thank my wife for her help in the preparation of this paper, and Mr. David Johnson for getting me started on it. I enjoyed working on it; I hope you will obtain as much enjoyment from reading it.
