    none of these options are that satisfactory, really. pre- industrialisation, human labour was king. and slavery = free labour. and parking African slaves in the West Indies allowed the British Empire to make even more money, pretty much for free. to say, for instance, that it resolved a shortage of workers, really is to trivialise it.
