Roberts, John?, 1615.
The economical dispute of “whether to be a Staple system or a company organization” produced the reference of Milles and Wheeler as mentioned above. At a later time, when The East India Company (a joint-stock company system) was established, it developed into the dispute of “which is proper for long distance trade, The Company of Merchant Adventurers or The East India Company?”. Since the greatest merchant vessel “Trades Increase” of The East India Company was wrecked in 1613, while the author discussed both advantages and disadvantages and accepted the former’s profits, he points out the weak point of The East India Company, and he criticizes severely that the trade which The East India Company performed brought disadvantageous profits to the maritime right of Britain.
