Rembrandt van Rijn’s “Beggars Receiving Alms at the Door of a House” truly shows the poor are able and gladly getting money from more than willing house-owners (Document 6). The Netherlands during this time period was flourishing economically and was extremely rich. Its citizens were more than willing to share their money with those less fortunate as their government was very economically based, with a group of merchants running the government. Rijn, and other Netherlandish people, were Protestant and already came to a conclusion of how the poor should be treated and given alms, while Catholics were trying to come to some conclusion. Now that the Catholics had finally come to some conclusion, Vincent de Paul, similarly, as a Catholic priest, wrote how “we must assist the poor and see that they are helped in every possible way” (Document 7).
The world war began in Europe, but it also spread to the world. For example, British areas, such as Canada, Austria, and New Zealand, became British allies. The United States, however, was undecided since they could not decide which side was just.

The discrimination of the castle people ruined this family because Jack thought that his son marrying a castle women “is dirtying the family name” (245). Even after Jack and Rosie became close David disliked his father and didn’t want to be around him (246). This shows how even when the discrimination is gone it stays inside people and they cannot forgive the people that
The Medici Family As Walt Disney once said, “It takes a lot of money to make these dreams come true.” The Medici family demonstrated the importance of money to achieving one’s dreams during the rebirth of the Classical age. If the family had not gained the immense amount of wealth that they did, the creations of many famous Renaissance works of art and ideas would never have taken place. This would have resulted in a halt in the advancements of culture, thus, keeping people fixed in a period of Dark Ages. The funding from the Medici bank sparked a change in art, society, and politics that would shatter the standards of Medieval economy and result in the conversion from the Middle Ages to Renaissance times.

The nobles being in debt meant that they lost status and power, which ultimately fed the basis for the French Revolution. Document 3 states; “The aftermath of the revocation was disastrous for France. Many of those who abjured [gave up] their Protestant religion repented of their weakness.”(Doc 3) This demonstrates that the removal of the Edict of Nantes drove people insane because it granted the people France substantial rights, however when the rights were removed by Louis XIV people became infuriated, which is another reason to why the French Revolution occurred.

Rockefeller in revolutionizing business operations and ushering in of the contemporary corporate economy. However, the revolution sometimes affected free-market in a negative way through unfair market and economic competitions in the process.
