Moneta e investimenti esteri durante il relativo declino dell'impero britannico
Investigating on the reasons of British overseas investments (1850-1913) we analyze two different approaches on data concluding that they are not different from a stochastic view. Inquiring on â€˜pushâ€™ approach, we find that exists negative correlation between GDP and overseas investments where the former cause the latter. Link between monetary events and colonialism highlights Indiaâ€™s role as a reserve of bullions. In this way, British capital was able to complete its natural cycle draining money for future foreign investments. This improves the theory by introducing the monetary element in â€˜pushâ€™ and â€˜pullâ€™ hypothesis as well.
