IT must be obvious to any reader of this book that there is a long way to go before we come near to a full understanding of the basic forces affecting the British economy at the end of the nineteenth century. It is directly apparent, though, that even when much more research has been carried out, no uni-causal explanation for any of the phenomena discussed here, will be arrived at. We can only hope to become more sure of the relative importance of various factors and to strive for greater statistical and analytical precision wherever possible.
