Pomeranz argues that Europe s nineteenth century divergence from the Old World owes much to the fortunate location of coal, which substituted for timber This made Europe s failure to use its land intensively much less of a problem, while allowing growth in energy intensive industries Another crucial difference that he notes has to do with trade Fortuitous global conjunctures made the Americas a greater source of needed primary products for Europe than any Asian periphery This allowed Northwest Europe to grow dramatically in population, specialize further in manufactures, and remove labor from the land, using increased imports rather than maximizing yields Together, coal and the New World allowed Europe to grow along resource intensive, labor saving paths. Meanwhile, Asia hit a cul de sac Although the East Asian hinterlands boomed after 1750, both in population and in manufacturing, this growth prevented these peripheral regions from exporting vital resources to the cloth producing Yangzi Delta As a result, growth in the core of East Asia s economy essentially stopped, and what growth did exist was forced along labor intensive, resource saving paths paths Europe could have been forced down, too, had it not been for favorable resource stocks from underground and overseas.
