In his book, called Creating the Commonwealth, Innes shows how the New Englanders, who settled a relatively inhospitable land with no obvious cash crop such as tobacco, achieved a rate of economic growth that could only be called stunning. Certainly, attitudes such as the work ethic were a crucial ingredient of the story.

Stephen Innes, professor of history at the University of Virginia, has written extensively on the social history of colonial America. The economic success of the Massachusetts Bay Colony was due as much to its strict Puritan society as to any market factors, contends University of Virginia historian Innes (Work and Labor in Early America, Univ. of North Carolina P. 1988).

This ambitious history offers a sweeping reinterpretation of America's cultural roots in the colonial past.

Marshaling rich new evidence, Innes focuses on enterprise in early New England and its relation to the prevailing culture of Puritanism. He finds in our beginnings at Massachusetts Bay a fierce devotion to God that fed a social commitment to engage the world and prosper. The result was a thriving capitalism and a diminishing devotion which alarmed Puritan leaders in the late seventeenth century. While telling the story of Massachusetts Bay's transformation from a resource-poor perch on the continent to an active international economy, Innes supplies wonderful detail on early New England's ironworks, fisheries, shipyards, and the "Scums and dreggs" who provided the labor for Puritan enterprise.

I believe I have ordered from this supplier before. Textbook was even better than I expected and faster shipment than guaranteed. I will look to you next semester.

Innes argues that the economic success of the Massachusetts Bay Colony was due to the Puritans creation of a society in which capitalism, community, and civil society were connected. The Protestant work ethic, which was taught in the household, pulpit, meetinghouse, and assembly, instructed that God provided every man with a calling and it was his duty to work hard at it. This religious-based work ethic coupled with the belief that profit taking was fine as long as the profits were used to help others (the linking of individual and collective well-being) encouraged the development, within the community, of an individual-based capitalism. These two beliefs endorsed "striving" behavior and enterprise which led to the growth of the economy.
