The historical events in question consisted of a set of technological, economic, and social changes that in the long run revolutionized not just the British economy but that of the rest of western Europe, North America, and eventually much of the rest of the world.

4 hypotheses on the connections between proto industrialization and industrialization
4 hypotheses on the connections between Proto-industrialization and Industrialization

1. led to population growth and land fragmentation,

broke down traditional regulation of demographic behaviour by peasants & inheritance systems

2. created profits which formed capital for factory industrialization

3. provided merchants with skills and experience for factory industrialization

4. caused commercialization of agriculture:

this, in turn, enabled subsequent urbanization and factory industrialization
