The United States’ trade relationship with China was initiated in 1784, a few years prior to the Early Republic era, when the first American ship, “Empress of China”, reached China and successfully completed trade that resulted in a 25% profit. As a direct result, America’s trade involvement with China grew over the next few decades—and so did its desire for further economic privileges. Upon defeating China in the First Opium War, the British navy secured special trading privileges, which the United States grew envious of. The result was the Treaty of Wangxia, which granted the United States the same privileges as Britain, along with some additions, most notably a most-favored-nation clause, meaning that the United States would receive any trading rights that the Chinese government would grant other nations. This exchange represents the first in a long history of the United States viewing the Chinese as simply a form of economic utility.

By 1857, the British, through the East India Company, directly ruled two thirds of India. The remaining third was overseen by Indian princes who paid tribute to the British. The British not only dominated the Indian economy, sending profits back to Britain: they also imposed their values on the Indian people by preventing Indian soldiers from occupying high ranking positions in the army and introducing social and land reforms. Thus, even though the British government was not engaged in direct imperialism, the British East India Company still had a strong, controlling hand in the Indian way of life.
Was the British Empire a force for good? The British Empire had a huge impact globally. It can be argued that it was a “force for good” because British brought some positive changes such as roads, hospitals. They needed roads and hospital so they could have more workers and their kids were provided with health care.
