To cite an instance, Brown University wrote, “because of illness and death workers became exceedingly scarce so even peasants felt the effects of the new rise in wages”(“social”). The population decline affected the economy in many ways. Though there were many negative consequences, there were also some positives, such as higher wages. Additionally, an excerpt from 'The Black Death’ reads “The Black Death did more than kill large numbers of people. It also altered many social customs disrupted trade, and made most people fearful of contact with strangers”(Bender 65).
European immigrants who had come to the United States in search of jobs and new opportunities had fallen into poverty as well as poor working and living conditions. Not only had immigrants been cheated of a promised "comfortable" lifestyle, but the U.S. had also negatively
Throughout humanity, humans have been isolated to social classes and divided due to wealth, and status. Europe during 1450 to 1700 was issuing a major problem because poverty was common throughout Europe. This was a major problem as poverty was one of the factors of the high death rates because of starvation. As a result, many different European countries including the Spanish, France, Great Britain, and Netherlands, spoke up to the occasion in different attitudes and responses. Many individuals whether they are rulers, doctors, artists, council members had a different view to the poor as some will have a negative connotation portraying the unfortunate as idleness, while others will show sympathy and positivity in their ideas.
Encyclopedia Britannica states, “Probably the most regrettable effect of the conquest was the total eclipse of the English vernacular as the language of literature, law, and administration.” There were negative consequences to the invasion of England, including the ceasing of the speaking of the English language, the weakening link between Scandinavia and England, higher taxes for the citizens, and a large decline in the number of free peasants (Wilde, Robert). The weakened link between Scandinavia and England hurt England’s economy because of the decrease in trade between the two territories, and the higher taxes that the government gave the citizens made many of them live in poverty. The number of free peasants decreased because many of them were living in poverty, and became serfs to be provided with food and shelter, in exchange for their manual labor. The English language was originally used for official documents, but the Normans used Latin for theirs, resulting in a decline in the speaking of English for many years. While there were negative consequences of the Norman invasion, there were many more positive impacts on the English people.
When Hitler came into power in Germany’s democratic system of government was weak. There were people suffering a process of returning people to the place they were born and also returning refugees or military persons to the place they were born after World War 1. There were also lots of food shortages and very high unemployment rates which caused many people to starve and to be very poor due to having no job to source money from. The Great Depression had a rather large effect on the Weimar republic and this had an impact on the people and made them start to lose faith in the republic and this was because the treaty took most of Germany’s money and recourses. The German people were on food rations and they were in economic desperation and they
The plebeians were doing the most work for the city while the patricians were taking the credit for their work. These various class differences angered the middle class, so there were more little protests that led to a smaller gap between classes. In the later eras of the Roman Empire, the patricians who were once much richer and more powerful started to decline. Some patricians even lost money and were impoverished in the later era. In many cases plebeians had more money than patricians.
Not only are people being pushed out of their neighbourhoods and homes by those willing to pay more, there is an apparent price hike for those who desire to stay in their homes. Non-integrated/non-gentrified communities start off with higher poverty rates while simultaneously having low homeownership. Then people with higher incomes move in causing a raise in the cost of living within the community. Despite this the working class pay and low income remain the same for the original residents who can no longer afford to live in what once was their home. The social cost of the actions are extremely high and cause just as many community issues as household familial issues.
Also, at the time the railroad companies began to have issues, so they increased prices for shipping as well as making the middlemen take more money from the farmers. The farmers then had to mortgage their farms for credit. This created the Panic of 1893. Railroads went bankrupt, stocks fell, businesses and banks collapsed. Life wasn’t easy for anyone living in the west at the time, that included the Native
The Black Death wiped out a high percentage of the population of Europe contributing to the deterioration of the ties that held the feudal system together. Feudalism met the needs of the people by creating an economic system that kept order in all of
Customers died, which means that their debt did not get paid back, so it hurt the financial lenders. Guilds died or lost their craftsmen and could not replace them, so the public was out a lot of specialty services that they needed done. With all of the dying public this means that the demand for goods went down and the supply went up, so there was an oversupply of goods with no one to buy them, therefore, the prices were chopped. Along with all of these aspects of society falling apart, there were many groups in society causing issues. One group, the Flagellants, caused a huge uproar amongst the public.
Therefore, the middle class lords were entangled between falling revenue and rising production costs. This prompted them to force a price-squeeze, and when they failed, most of them surrendered and sold their properties, including estates. The outcome was a social upheaval, which accelerated the social evolution trend. To be specific, the Black Death took a toll on the society, effectively ending the feudal system in Europe.
These plagues lowered the population drastically. This loss of population made it hard to find laborers and soldiers for war. This caused the empire to pay Germanic soldiers to fight for them. The need to pay for troops created a large debt for the Romans. Another reason that led to the decline of the Roman Empire was their water source coming in through lead pipes.
Transportation- A big portion of railroads and industrial supplies were destroyed over the course of the war. The south had begun rebuilding transportation by the nineteenth century. West: Political- Because of the trouble between white settlers and immigrants at that time there were numerous outbreaks of violence and laws aimed towards discrimination. Social- Chinese immigrants who migrated to the west would work for wages considerably less than normal and them doing so caused tension between white settlers. Economic or type of economy- The west relied more on agriculture than any other place because it was the most efficient.
Many new immigrants from places in southern and eastern Europe such as Italy, Greece and Russia settled in Northern cities and became the backbone of industrial labor. Due to a lack of space in cities and the tendency of poverty among these immigrants, many of them had to live in tenements and slums. Since these immigrants were willing to settle for lower wages and worse conditions, they occupied many industrial jobs, frustrating the working class of whites and old immigrants. Along with the frustration that the immigrants were taking jobs away from natives, there was a widespread sentiment that these new immigrants were inferior. Furthermore, these new immigrants were religious but tended to be Catholic or Jewish as opposed to Protestant as was the majority, providing another basis of resentment.
Many immigrants found shelter in the tightly packed urban areas causing conditions to plummet. Also, many immigrants needed jobs. These immigrants were willing to work for lesser pay than their citizen counterparts. All this lead to the increase in poverty on both sides, along with the anger of the American citizens. The citizens started blaming the immigrants for the economic depression of that time.
