His role in the government allowed his influence to be carried through France. He had hit on every single idea in mercantilism. With his overseas expansion, his efforts to balance trade, the industries he tried to build, and his work with taxes we can obviously see that Colbert did in fact did improve the economic condition of France during Louis XIV’s reign. After implementing his mercantilist policies there was little lasting effects when compared to Colbert’s efforts in taxation (Ames
These raw materials were exploited for the benefit of the population because it demonstrated how these resources speak quickly and rapidly in England. Along with that, England had a trade base in their harbour and a Royal Navy that protected merchants and private traders. This allowed England to obtain maritime and colonial power in which explained how they had access to the environment. Documents 1 and 4 show how the population reacted to the resources and how they used them efficiency, which caused an advantage in England, since these raw materials were necessary for the Industrial
occupies a small amount of land and has a large population, with little material out of which to manufacture, hence has to rely upon the material imported from other countries” (Document 37- DBQ 14). By industrializing, Japan was able to dominate in the sale of manufactured goods like textiles, to those areas abroad that it was closer to than the more powerful Western countries. The success in economics greatly advanced imperialism in nations with more money, trade, and raw
However it was a minor success because of the socialistic ideologies that were given birth to during the Revolution, which helped reform France into what it is today. Firstly, the French Revolution was a
People made their money from land-ownership and commerce was something that would have been looked down upon a few decades earlier. Mandarin’s gradually lost their prestige and were not much better off materially than the merchants and peasants they governed. Commerce and business became not only respectable, but also desirable to develop a country. The French also began to educate more natives and open up the middle and upper levels of government to the locals. When Duong Thieu Chi got a job in the colonial government, the French had become more militant and structured (Elliot, p. 85).
With the Industrial Revolution, came a plethora of higher paid jobs for middle class men, and as the population of middle class people increased, more people got more money. The workers got paid as did the investors whose companies flourished with new educated workers to not only as artisans but also managers and supervisors. With the burgeoning middle class people improving the financial status of themselves and others, they had more prominence in economic, social, and political aspects of Britain. The middle class was seen as vital because of their efficiency in industry. This upper class fellow, Sir John Eardley-Wilmot, claimed that “the progress in the wealth and prosperity of the country… a progress mainly due to the skill and industry of the productive classes, has been most rapid and marvelous.” (good will use primary pg 3).
French explorers came to the New World seeking gold as well. There was a bond between the Church and the Capetian kings (Jaenen vii), so evangelization was a goal for the French crown. Assimilation was the main strategy for both the French church and state (Melzer 169). The French wanted close contact with the Native Americans. The French said that they would form “a same people and same blood” (Melzer 169).
Although this was selfish, Europe gained wealth and power because of the imperialism. In document A there was increasing nationalism in Europe, and in document B Europeans wanted riches and glory which lead to competition in Europe. They wanted to keep up with their neighbors and this was important to them. Europeans wanted African materials like rubber which wasn't available to them in Europe, they also wanted to create new markets for their goods, this would have led them to great wealth for their nations. Europeans were able to use natural resources to make money, or also
Workers in American coastal cities made garments for sailors in lofts where sails were produced, made from the same durable material. Inventors started designing some of the first prototypes for sewing machines, but laborers feared for their jobs and destroyed it - these models didn’t work well anyway, new and improved models followed. This period birthed many fashion related inventions and discoveries; vulcanized rubber, shoemaking machinery, artificial cellulosic fibers and synthetic coal-tar dyes. In America, slaves crafted their own clothing on cotton plantations, the construction of the clothing were broken down into smaller segments making it easier and quicker to learn. Across America and Europe canals and roads were built, making sure that new fashion trends all corners of the nation.
The innovation of French forces enhanced the overall capabilities of the United States forces. Ultimately leading to the victory over the Nazi’s and giving the ability to allow the growth of the French’s impact of culture to grow and bounce back from the turmoil. Foreigners who were permitted to colonize into France after the World Wars contributed to the diversity of culture. The French tolerated immigrants coming into their country being cognizant that it would foster an environment for more varieties of religion. Nevertheless, they prohibited symbols of certain faith in schools because they want to “reserve their philology and ethos.” There are certain emblems and items the French have attempted to restrict from adorning while in communal institutes to prevent any societal strain and to maintain (Roman Catholicism) as the center of religion.
