Interview with Anton Howes on innovation and the factors driving the timing and location of the Industrial Revolution. Discusses why Elizabethan England lagged in agriculture and industry; how an ‘improving mentality’ came to England; institutional support for innovation; the role of royal monopolies and early corporations, great exhibitions, world fairs and international competition; and copyrights, patents and innovation.
Anton’s newsletter, Age of Invention, was probably my favourite discovery of the last year or so. His book, Arts and Minds: How the Royal Society of Arts Changed a Nation will be published 12 May 2020.
