Why did Great Britain need to raise money?

Britain had spent an excessive sum of money on its wars and plan to colonize the East. Thus, Britain needed to raise money to fund its own expansion through the Industrial Revolution. A lot of money in particular was spent on the French Wars and on the colonization of the subcontinent.
