Summary
The Birth of Virginia's Aristocracy presents a philosophical discussion on how society developed in 17th century Virginia. The Virginia Company of London founded its new world colony with the intention of making money. Company treasurer Sir Edwin Sandys attempted to save its faltering business by shifting the company focus from creating profits to creating a viable marketplace. Sandys undertook to do this by establishing a commonwealth and providing a market where capitalists could exchange the products of their industry. Thompson finds in Sandys experiment this fundamental lesson: unless a society provides it members a profit-generating market, it will fail. Sandys program did not save his company, but it did save its colony by making it a place where private enterprise could succeed
