The following publication of Albert J. Beveridge’s powerful speech, strongly advocates the annexation of the Philippines, which took a virtually major relationship between religion, race, and profit for imperial expansion. The most striking point about Albert J. Beveridge text, however is his five poorly thought out reasons justifiying Americas to colonize the Phillippines, which were religion, trade, keeping up with other countries, resources, and “barbarous” natives.
Over the course of the time period 1492 to 1750, Europeans exerted increasing economic dominance over the Americas and Africa which caused and even led to many social changes within the Atlantic world. It opened up new and old worlds to a world of growing interdependence as well as connectivity.
The Columbian Exchange is a crucial part of history without which the world as we know it today would be a very different place. Its effects were rapid, global, dramatic, and permanent.

The metric system is a system of measurement with length based upon the meter, mass or weight on the gram, and capacity based on the litter. Only 94.12% of countries don’t use the metric system in its entirety. The U.S. is one of the 5.88% that doesn’t use the metric system, but should because of the international relations, a boom in businesses, and the success of the other converted countries.
In being an anti-imperialist the worrisome is not that one opposes the idea of expansion of religion, commercial, and constitutional. It’s that with the annexing of these tropical islands would come to a result of the American system of self government would be that America might abandon this idea that makes America that nation it is to this point. Three reasons why the U.S should avoid imperialism is because it fails to follow that criteria of the constitution, could lead to tyrants like behavior, and could lead to conflict
The novel Lord of the Flies is about a group of schoolboys who are stranded on an unknown island and their journey of how they try to survive, but fail. The story lacks any real female character. But why? There no complete answer to this question, but I think it is because in the story the boys learn the a few lessons such as: responsibility, maturity, and respect. "The world, that understandable and lawful world, was slipping away" The boys had challenges and unfortunately not everyone survived. I believe the author wanted to show us that men are not perfect to begin with and even at a young age (like the characters in the novel) the boys struggle with responsibility, maturity, and respect. So, would the story be different if the characters were all female? In this essay I will compare differences on boy and girl characters in the novel and I will replace a character from Lord of the Flies with a female counterpart. Giving details on how she looks, acts, what motivates her to do the things she does, and how would life on the
In Prisoners of Geography, Tim Marshall argues that geography constrains and shapes all nations and their leaders. Their actions are limited by mountains, rivers, seas, and concrete. He argues that to really understand world events, one must also consider geography. Physical characteristics affect the strengths and vulnerabilities of regions. In his book, Tim Marshall examines Russia, China, the Middle East, Latin America, the United States, Africa, Western Europe, Japan and Korea, and Greenland and the Arctic. In his examination of Latin America, he notes that bringing “Old World” knowledge and technology does little to improve a region if the geography is counterproductive. In the chapter on the Arctic, Marshall examines the Arctic’s unforgiving environment and the indisputable effects of global warming in the region.
In the 1500s were there were only 13 colonies, they traded many items that soon became the center of there region, but, trading these days is isn’t as important as it was those days.

Europe’s insatiable capitalist quest led to its conquest of many parts of the world, including the Caribbean island and mainland states. The process started with the ‘discovery’ of the West Indies in the late 15th Century by Christopher Columbus, and continued through the Triangular or Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. The need for land for the extension of Europe’s value-added assets resulted in colonisation of the West Indies, while the need for labour to till the soil led to slavery. Colonisation and slavery, therefore, are agents of capitalism. Imperialism is considered the plateau or highest point of capitalism, for imperialism is the conquest of lands and peoples for the imperialist regime’s extension of power and influence.
The trading of foreign products between the eastern world and the Americas was the Columbian exchange that formed modern America. The exchange of culture, crops, livestock, diseases and ideas paved a foundation for how assimilated the world would become. For so long it has been a disregarded topic people rarely contemplate, but its significance is grand in understanding how each part of the world is composed.
There are three different economic systems Traditional, Market and Command. The survival of any society depends on its ability to provide food, clothing and shelter for its people. Due to the fact that these three societies face scarcity, which means “The state of being scarce or in short supply”, decisions concerning WHAT, HOW and FOR WHOM to produce must be made. However, another similarity is that all societies have an economy or an economy system which is an organized way of providing for the wants and needs of their people. This determines on the type of economy system they have. Most countries around the world can be identified either by Traditional, Market or Command.

David Ricardo’s work “On The Principles of Political Economy and Taxation” written in 1817 is the example of classical writings about economics. The point Ricardo makes in Chapter 7 “On Foreign Trade” is generally that trade is beneficial and a basis for trade is comparative advantage (1817). The essay states that comparative advantage can be a reason for international trade; however there are still problems with its implication in practice. To prove that this paper will first explain Ricardo’s comparative advantage theory. Second, it will provide an example of Kazakhstan and Russia for more explanation. Finally, there will be some counterarguments opposing comparative advantage theory.
