Synopsis: Victorian Investments explores the relationship between the financial system in Great Britain and other aspects of Victorian society and culture. The contributors demonstrate how phenomena such as the expansion of colonial and foreign markets, the broadening of the investor base through the advent of limited liability, and the rise of financial journalism gave rise to a “culture of investment” that affected Victorian Britons at every level of society and influenced every kind of cultural production.
