You claim that Agricultural revolution preceded the Industrial Revolution in the UK. Can you please provide some evidence of this? I was under the impression that these were actually happening simultaneously in the 17th and 18th Century.

I would become completely grateful if you also make available at least english subtitles, unfortunately my english is not so good, but subtitles help me a lot and others that don't have much opportunities of speak english.
I'm now wondering about the similarities and differences, strengths and weaknesses, and stories of communities or countries that have sought to leverage tourism or mining on their land as a means for economic development rather than agriculture. Does anyone have any insights on this or references to relevant research? I'd appreciate it!
