Economic factors were more of a driving force behind imperialism since the imperialists were in search of natural resources for improving technology and their national pride. The Europeans went to Africa because of their many resources and their quantities of gold, fur, and yarn all superior resources for the Europeans. Africa had dealt with European
The European push to Africa was mainly due to the ban of slave in 1807. They needed another way to exploit Africa to support their economic, social and political growth. So colonization was an alternative way to harvest the abundant recourses present in Africa.

To settle the laws of the colonization in Africa, European countries held the Berlin Conference. Africans, however, were not invited. As this is an obviously careless thing to do, why did Europe begin colonizing Africa? The three main factors behind European Imperialism include political competition, cultural beliefs, and economics. Political competition among European countries resulted into European
The years between 500-1189 were “Golden Ages” because in the late Middle Ages there was more farmland, better tools to farm it, meant more food. More food meant that the population grew in Europe! Another reason why this was a Golden Time is because Ghana had an army that could protect traders, they worked hard, but they were safe and protected, and they had plenty to eat. The first reason it could be considered the Golden Era is because there was more farmland, if they had more farmland they would have more food, and if they had more food that would mean they also had more population. My evidence is “Available farmland tripled, and the food supply increased notably bringing up the population.”Available farmland tripled, and the food supply increased notably bringing up the population.” Europe was growing.
There were many reasons was to why World War 1 started such as Imperialism, Militarism and Nationalism, But the most supportive role in bringing WW1 is Imperialism.

By colonizing Africa, Great Britain could spread its influence and artificially create demand for their exports. By 1900, Great Britain was exporting more than 20 million British pounds of goods, while only importing about 8 million. Thus, Great Britain’s colonization and expansion into Africa grew its wealth and power.
Africa on the other hand, offered things such as ivory. Unfortunately, most of the land was uncultivable or what they addressed as “vacant land”. Also, they did not “have the resources to exploit the entire territory, so another set of decrees carved parts of the Congo into several giant blocks, whose “vacant land” was leased out for long periods as concessions to private companies” ( King Leopold’s Ghost). I personally thought this was a highly clever way to not only get use of the land, but also collect a profit from the
Europeans wanted to have power over Africa so that they can access an abundance of natural resources. The Europeans were able to receive natural resources and the Africans made it possible. They worked hard to mine resources in harsh conditions and were used a free labor. The labor that these Africans produced resulted in the Europeans being wealthy. Imperialism created instability because the African workers did most of the hard work and the “uncivilized people” were forced to change their ways.
