The economic history of the United Kingdom relates the economic development in the British Isles from the absorption of Wales into England after 1535 to the early 21st century.

Cambridge Core - Economic Development and Growth - Political Transformations and Public Finances - by Mark Dincecco. In a pioneering work of political economy and economic history, Mark Dincecco analyzes how European states developed effective fiscal systems that could fund wars, pay for education and public works, and cut the risk on sovereign debt.
