Ship money | English history

Ship money, in British history, a nonparliamentary tax first levied in medieval times by the English crown on coastal cities and counties for naval defense in time of war. It required those being taxed to furnish a certain number of warships or to pay the ships’ equivalent in money. Its revival and its enforcement as a general tax by Charles I aroused widespread opposition and added to the discontent leading to the English Civil Wars.

  • Thinking about money
  • Thinking about how to control money to make profit
  • Studying how to take chances in projects that make money
  • As a verb, “to finance” is to provide money for business.
