Capitalism in the United Kingdom

The UK has a lot of history behind it's practice of capitalism. It was the first place in Europe to have it's industrial revolution. This happened because the British Empire had all the resources needed and their government let people use their money however they wanted. People could invest in industries such as railroads, coal mines, and textile factories. This led to the British Empire having one of the largest economies in the world at the time. This still happens to this very day.
