Improvements in communications helped to make business easier to conduct as it also helped to improve the quality of life for many Britons. Publications of all kinds sprang into life during the early 1700s. Many of these lived for a few days or weeks, but others continued for decades (Turner 1952; McNabb 1991). Usually founded with very little capital, the publications were forced to sell advertisements. This development helped to greatly accelerate growth of the country’s already rapidly growing retail distribution system.

Effects of the Plague Like their counterparts on the European continent, the population of Britain was decimated in the fourteenth century by a series of outbreaks of plague. The first wave hit in 1348 and 1349. This was followed by further attacks in 1361 and again in 1368–69. 5 million. By the end of this tortured century, that population had been halved to number only a little more than two million (Briggs, 1983).
