This chapter brings the findings of the journal to a conclusion. It gives an overview of the industrial and shipping progress made between the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, noting that the need for the bulk transport of goods propelled much of the development. It reviews the rate of growth and the part shipping played in laying the groundwork for the coming Industrial Revolution. It concludes that these two centuries of shipping established British monopolies, greater wealth, and the dependence of the American economy - a status quo which would last for another century.
