This chapter sums up the key findings of this study about the business culture in the British Atlantic during the period from 1750 to 1815. It discusses the role of the British state in providing the context for successful British commerce in this period and highlights the importance of the business culture of the merchants in providing a socially-embedded, private-order institution that allowed them to regulate themselves and cope with crises. This chapter concludes that risk, trust, reputation, obligation and networks were the institutional elements of successful business culture of this period.

Keywords:   business culture, British Atlantic, British state, crises, risk, trust, reputation, obligation, networks
