Taken together, the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand increased their GDP by 43 times during the century, although they reached only 79% of the total West European GDP level by 1913. If measured on a per capita basis, the picture was somewhat different. In 1820 and 1870, these overseas countries were far behind Britain, reaching only 69% and 75% of its per capita income level respectively, but from the 1870s they broke through and by 1913 they already surpassed Britain by 4% and Western Europe in general by more than 40%.

Beer and whiskey, produced mostly by the Dundalk, Dublin, and Belfast distilleries and the Dublin brewers, Guinness first among them, represented more than 40% of Irish exports in 1907 (Cullen, 1987: 134–5; 157–61). 8% per year on average. 3% per year (Bairoch, 1973). Capital accumulation from export incomes also increased. Initial steps toward industrialization were taken in some of these countries, though only a few of them were able to become agricultural-industrial – most remained entirely agricultural.

Before the war, Germany sold nearly onethird of the world’s total exports of chemical products and 90% of its synthetic dyes. The country’s chemical output was 60% higher than that of the United States and five times higher than that of the Swiss, who were second on the continent. The country’s exceptional strength in the sciences and its uniquely advanced system of technical education provided a strong foundation for new science-based industries. Overall, Germany’s economic growth was one of the fastest in early twentieth-century Europe: per capita GDP increased by 32% between 1897 and 1913 (Hoffmann, 1971: 31–5; K¨ollmann, 1978: 17).
