‘Deeply researched and well-written’ – Financial Times In the mid-sixteenth century, England was a small and relatively insignificant kingdom on the periphery of Europe, and it had begun to face a daunting array of social, commercial and political problems. Struggling with a single export – woollen cloth – a group of merchants formed arguably the world’s first joint-stock company and set out to seek new markets and trading partners. This start-up venture transformed England in to a global power and sowed the seeds of nascent modern America. New World, Inc. is the riveting story of pilgrims, profits and the venture capitalists behind Sir Francis Drake and Sir Walter Raleigh. ‘Brilliantly researched and vividly told’ – Liaquat Ahamed, author of the Pulitzer Prize winning Lords of Finance
