This introductory chapter discusses the theme of this volume which is about the business culture in the British Atlantic during the period from 1750 to 1815. This volume aims to provide a better understanding of the merchants and their business culture within the framework of the British-Atlantic world, or more precisely, the English-speaking Atlantic. This chapter suggests that the business culture of the merchants or traders formed a private-order institution that facilitated trade around the Atlantic during this period and offers evidence that there was no way they could act ‘merely for money’.

Keywords:   business culture, British Atlantic, merchants, English-speaking Atlantic, private-order institution, merely for money
