Land was allocated to feudal vassals of the king, many of whom had joined the conquest with this reward in mind. The system worked fairly well except under the growing pressure of demand, the putting-out system could no longer keep up. The mountaineering associations soon acquired popularity, although they were somewhat conservative, and their impact was enormous. In the 17th century, the English statesman and "Father of Modern Science, Francis Baconbelieved that natural philosophy what we call science could be applied to the solution of practical problems, and so, the idea of modern technology was born. This account tends to see capitalism as a continuation of trade, arising when people's natural entrepreneurialism was freed from the constraints of feudalismpartly by urbanization.

      England's agricultural revolution came as a result of increased attention to fertilizers, the adoption of new crops and farming technologies, and the enclosure movement. Banks and industrial financiers rose to new prominent during the period, as well as a factory system dependent on owners and managers. Land rents had moved away from the previous stagnant system of custom and feudal obligation, and were becoming directly subject to economic market forces. The origins of the Industrial Revolution in England are complex and varied and, like the French Revolution, the Industrial Revolution is still a subject of a vast historical debate over origins, developments, growth and end results. England's centralisation also meant that an unusual number of English farmers were not peasants with their own land and thus direct access to subsistence but tenants renting their land.

      England began a large-scale and integrative approach to mercantilism during the Elizabethan Era. Cotton is the miracle fiber -- it is easy to clean, spin, weave and dye and is comfortable to wear. The loss of their former exclusivity and the shift towards entertainment and distraction signified an increase in social accessibility, 43 whereas, for example, the new ski and winter tourism retained its chic clientele at the turn of the century. Travelling became a form of popular movement and an answer to the desire to relax among large sections of the population following the advance of industrialisation and urbanisation.
