Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"Not so much productivity as political power" ...

... I don't see any contradiction to what I said, you've just gone into more detail how British textile production arrived at its productivity advantage by the mid-1800's. That alongside the tariffs on British steel rail in the US, are a big part of the inspiration infant industry development policy pursued in Latin America after WWII.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
