The booming production of cotton in the south during the 19th century was a vast money maker and supplied for the Southern economy, however, it also caused many set backs. Cotton fueled the economy of the Southern states and arguably the economy of the Northern states as well, and also played a major role in the global economy of that time. Cotton indeed brought great wealth to the Southern states, but only the plantation owners benefitted from this wealth. The rest of the population was left poor, uneducated, and illiterate. Despite the wealth and power that cotton brought to the south, it also brought slavery and thus the Civil War which ultimately left the South weak and powerless.
The civil war lasted ten years. Consequently, it set off a great migration of Mexicans across the border to the U.S.A. They settled in the South Western states such as Texas, which had experienced an enormous economic growth, especially in cotton production. The immigrants provided the labor force needed for the farms and industries. Second:
Although the Americas were inhabited, it was not as civilized as Europe was during that time. Fishing was a major source of food for the Native Americans. Before the largest river in the Americas, there was a civilization that homed thousands of people in the jungle. The people that lived there relied on fruits such as papaya and coconut.
Egypt, the mother of the world, the home of the Pharaohs and the pyramids, was colonized by Britain. Britain had the largest empire during the 1800’s and the 1900’s, controlling land in Southeast Asia and in the Americas. After WWI the Ottomans were forced to leave all of its land in Africa. The new countries in Africa, especially northern countries were an easy target for imperialism. Egypt was very important for two main reasons, one of them being the amount of food Egypt had and its strong reliable food source.
Therefore farmers converted millions of prairie acres in cotton and wheat, which caused farmers to produce more than they can sell. Consequently, in the 1930’s winds blew the topsoil of the land which caused dust storms. In addition, a website “History” asserted, “The Dust Bowl was caused by several economic and agricultural factors, including
but as the Romans grew more and more powerful some of their citizens took it as an opportunity for personal wealth and they opened a massive gap between themselves and the working class.

So many different types of trades were needed for this diverse section of the country. In the south, since there was only one job and that was cotton. There was no need for education to be invested in, so the south was known for it low
In the North the economy consisted of industrial machines and factories used to produce goods. Railroads were also used for fast communication and trade, and immigrants came to work at these factories, which led to cheaper labor. In the South it was much more of a rural based society that included a lot of farming and agriculture. Crops were relied on heavily as a form of profit. The rivers were what the South used to transport good, and as a result led to slow communication.
This area was also the first region to domesticate theDromedary Camel. The presence of these animals gave the region a large advantage in cultural and economic development. As the climate in the Middle East changed, and became drier, many of the farmers were forced to leave, taking their domesticated animals with them. It was this massive emigration from the Middle East that would later help distribute these animals to the rest of Afroeurasia. This emigration was mainly on an east-west axis of similar climates, as crops usually have a narrow optimal climatic range outside of which they cannot grow for reasons of light or rain changes.
But why was social mobility so hard? Why were Egyptians forced to always follow in their parent’s footsteps? The way their social classes were structured also brings up some interesting questions. Farmers were at the bottom, but they provided food for the whole country.
A Brief Story of the United States Trade Unions In the United States, such as in most of other countries, agriculture played a very important role in the beginning of the enrichment decades. Native, African and White Americans were not the only ethnicities in the country by that time. Immigrants - mostly from Asia and Europe - started to arrive in the US seeking for job and the dream of wealth. Thanks for this population growth, the labor force was duplicated and the landlords realized it was time to spread their goods all over the country.

To begin with, Paleolithic people did many things to help them survive.
The Eastern Germanic and Western Byzantine empires were coexisting realms in the worlds of Medieval Christendom but they were drastically different in many regards. Although neighboring kingdoms, the two empires had few similarities and great amounts of differences. The East and Western Worlds of Medieval Christendom differed in their economies and ideals of Christianity but the effect of having a unified religion was similar for both empires. The economic state of each of the empires, specifically towards the beginning of their reign, were stark contrasts. The Eastern Byzantine empire had a thriving economy due to inheriting strategic and prosperous land.
The development of Western Europe and the Byzantine Empire were different due to government, economies and religion. The Byzantine Empire was ruled by an Emperor instead of a King, while Western Europe was separated into different countries by the language spoken. Western Europe had social systems of feudalism in place to serve the people. Christianity played a major role in both of the developments of Western Europe and the Byzantine Empire. The Byzantine Empire was influenced by Romans, but Western Europe considered the Pope to be of high influence and guidance.
