This unique study determines, by means of rigorous quantitative analysis, how cycles in New England cotton textile profits, output, borrowing, and capacity affected investment―and therefore industrial growth―during the nineteenth century. The firms studied were transitional forms between owner-managed companies and the modern corporation. From primary sources, Paul McGouldrick has constructed standardized balance sheets and income statements for each company year by year. A painstaking comparison with a much broader sample of companies shows that trends and cycles in profit rates for companies studied were typical of the industry.

Mr. McGouldrick's principal objective is to determine by means of rigorous quantitative analyses how trends and cycles in New England cotton textile profits affected investment, and therefore industrial growth, between approximately 1830 and 1890 - the period in which Southern competition began to change industry behavior. A second objective of the work is to measure profit trends and cycles using primary sources. A third objective is to analyze plant and equipment spending in the nineteenth century by testing modern liquidity and accelerator theories of investment, using the standardized balance sheets and income statements developed by the writer.
