The aim of our article 'Rehabihtating the industrial revolution' was to broaden the debate about the extent and nature of change in the economy and society of the industrial revolution. In 'Output growth and the British industrial revolution' Crafts and Harley reassert their position on the beginnings of modern economic growth, and dismiss our criticisms as confused and misleading. In doing this they have misconstrued a number of our arguments for a broader treatment of the industrial revolution in order to score clever debating points. A number of these can be answered very briefly.
