You Tube Video – The Great Divergence by Professor Clark of UC Davis

UC Davis have a whole sequence of video classes in You Tube. The questions addressed here are:

  • Why was there no improvement in human material conditions before 1800?
  • What triggered the Industrial Revolution?

Useful viewing for the Evolution of the World Economy section of the course.
