Where’s the class analysis in Game of Thrones? via the Guardian who don’t seem to have much of a clue to be honest, although their analysis of the rise and fall of Spain and the role of precious metals is an insight, and we should look to the role of the Iron Bank and the privatisation of the military, and although we now know where the finance for the arms and armour for Stanis’s army came from, I am not so sure of the people, nor of the manufacturing capability to make them.

    Amended slightly when copied from the ello feed, there is so little about the wealth creation in Westeros, they talk about the Martells feeding Kings Landing and in terms of manufacturing we know that Valerian Steel swords are hand made. I suppose it’s pre-industrial so there is no Proletariat. It’s hard to believe that feudalism lasted so long although of course in England we had many revolts, from the Peasants revolt to the English Civil War.
