But China’s massive bureaucracy was already firmly in place4, harmonized by a millenium of tradition and bonded by an immense body of statutory laws and provisions that, in theory at least, could offer pertinent advice on any problem that might arise in the daily life of China’s people.” So, where we have been looking to find out what caused the industrial revolution in England specifically, and Europe in general, one of the things we have been noticing is a trend toward morecentralized andefficient government that took fair taxes, and supported the economy of its subjects with a clear recognition that their enterprizewas good for the national economy, which increased the tax base, which was good for thre ruler, as well. But, as Spence notes, China already had that, and that means we have to take into account 2300 extra years of history, because the question must then be, why didn’t China industrialize? The answer comes, at least in part, in understanding the Ming Dynasty, which ruled China from 1368 to 1644.
