FoC Urban Change History

The scale that had previously driven economies of manufacturing, now also delivered economies of trade.

As a farmer, your primary concern was the ability to sell your crop. Where better to find buyers than a large city? Large numbers of buyers and sellers created a market for goods and price discovery that would previously have been left to the vagaries of bilateral trade. Market towns, the market-place and corn exchanges were born; the forerunners for our modern stock market. The largest cities, like London and York, attracted buyers and sellers from across the known world.
