@KeithThompson I cannot defend my previous statment as I should have said that mandatory minimum sentences exacerbate the issue of intent: for example three convictions for selling marajuana = life in prison under the 3 strikes law.

Mandatory minimum sentences often ignore intent and are also much more common in the USA.

comment Why did the British not introduce the sterling in India?
It would be nice to know why the British gave up hope-or why they did not replace the silver dollar in the Straits Settlements. It is good to know that the British tried.

comment Why did the United Kingdom industrialize first?
The cost of labor was twice as high in Britain compared to continental Europe-due to everything being more expensive on an island. Higher wages meant that labor saving technology was much more valuable in Britain than the rest of Europe.
