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.
During the time period of 1450-1750, there were many changes as well as continuities in the economy of the Atlantic world form. One main change during this time was, the involvement of trading European firearms and other foods. This diversified the initial upbringing of the Atlantic world trade, which was different from its original usage of exporting slaves, gold, salt, and other goods. But this was both a positive and negative change for the economical status of the Europeans earnings increased, but negatively as well as there were more weapons used for violence. In relation, a continuity that occurred through this time was the use of the Atlantic world for the trade of African slaves. And this related to a similar continuity throughout
The Trans-Atlantic slave trade was responsible for the forced migration of between 12 to 15 million people. From Africa to the Western Hemisphere, the slave trade not only displaced millions of Africans to a life of exploitation, but also a painful death.

With the new maritime knowledge in the Indian Ocean, larger ships were able to connect Africa to the rest of the Indian Ocean network, leading to merchant Diaspora which continued throughout the era. From 1000 CE to 1400 CE, African city-states began to grow and led to an intensified trading network throughout the Indian Ocean. With this increase in cross-cultural interaction, new technology, ideas and diseases were exchanged.
Throughout the trade networks between Africa and Eurasia, the continuities of the trade networks and the trade cities stayed the same. The use of the Mediterranean Sea trade, the Silk Road trade, and the Indian Ocean trade were continually used during the time period 300 to 1450. The trade routes were able to continue because of the consistent demand for goods such as spices and luxuries along the Silk Road, jewelry and gold in the Mediterranean Sea, and cotton and porcelain in the Indian Ocean between Africa and Eurasia.

Persians and Arabs began to trade gold, ivory, sandalwood, and ebony because it was a very profitable business. Thus, huge African ports developed and became major cultural ports and cities. Another big change was made when a new language was developed because of the integration between Bantu and Arabs known as Swahili. Swahili states such as Barawa, Mombasa, and Mogadishu were changed because of the trading and became diverse, more independent politically, and cosmopolitan. These states grew and became very powerful by the 1400s. Slavery, unfortunately, was a continuity that had been happening even before the Indian Ocean trade network was made. It was carried on by the Persians, Arabs, and some of the

As seen on the map on page 194, the most volume of slave trade came from Sub-Saharan Africa. These slaves were to be sent around the world, but mostly in the Americas. xThe slave trade that linked Africa to the Americas and Europe set in motion paths of cultural diffusions that transferred Africans and their cultures across the Atlantic Ocean.
