UNSPECIFIED. (1992) OUTPUT GROWTH AND THE BRITISH INDUSTRIAL-REVOLUTION - A RESTATEMENT OF THE CRAFTS-HARLEY VIEW. ECONOMIC HISTORY REVIEW, 45 (4). pp. 703-730. ISSN 0013-0117Full text not available from this repository.
This paper reviews the debate concerning British industrial output growth between 1760 and 1830. The earlier indices by Crafts and Harley are revised in accordance with new data. Detailed technical discussion of key issues is provided in four appendices. The main results show that the general picture provided by the authors ten years ago is still acceptable-insofar as any adjustment is required the effect is slightly to lower the estimated growth rate, contrary to recent claims. The idea of the industrial revolution as an important discontinuity is reasserted.
