As we all know, standard economic history presupposes free movement of goods but international immobility elsewhere, while land is assumed to be constant; capital and labour are assumed to grow only as a consequence of savings and of the natural increase in population.

Staple theory explains satisfactorily enough the particular pattern of development which followed in the wake of the rise of a successful staple industry. Thus, for instance, the specific network of linkages associated with particular staples accounts for the highly developed transport and commercial infrastructure and the urban concentrations around the ports which characterized all regions of recent settlement.
