For example, the government caused scarcity of silver in China caused farmers to cultivate less land because it drove the prices of grain down (Doc 3). This conveys the social problem that because the flow of silver in china was limited because of the government, farmers were not able to cultivate as much land. Therefore, less food was produced to sustain chinese society. Moreover, Ming official Ye chunji explains that a simple man is fulfilled even with scarcity of silver, while a extravagant man can not be content with huge amounts of silver (Doc 1). This record depicts the social problem that the huge flow of silver has caused some people to leave traditional confucian and chinese values of modesty and unnecessary spending because the author claims that there are people in society that can not be satisfied with enough wealth.
It also included widespread fighting among warlords. A quote that represents how hard the Great Depression was for industrial business owners is, “but it was the time of widespread fighting among warlords, who all levied heavy taxes. This, combined with the effects of the Great Depression, made it an extremely difficult time to run a textile factory” (Chang 104). Also, prior to the establishment of the Renminbi becoming the national currency in 1935, there were many different forms of payment. For example, in the book, it is mentioned that the only way to get her brother out of prison was to raise, “1,000 pieces of silver” (Chang
Because of this derision from the Mongols toward the Chinese, Mongols faced rebellion from the Chinese population that was uncontrollable. Eventually in 1368, the Mongol empire was taken over by rebel forces because of the hatred towards Mongol overlords and their unjust ruling. Leadership from the Mongols in china and the Middle East differed greatly and for Persia lead to beneficial for the empire while Mongol rule in china eventually lead to the decline of the
This lay way for Wang Mang’s unsuccessful Xin Dynasty. Partially because Wang Mang was faced with a natural catastrophe that destabilized the government socially and economically from the beginning of his reign (Lewis 2009). The natural catastrophe was the flood of the Yellow River. It altered the path for which water travelled through China and discharged into the sea. Channels that originally protected the people of China broke during the flood of the Yellow River and brought devastation upon the people (Chang-Qun et al. 1998).
The mass numbers shared a common goal and this paved the bloody path to the power of the people. The idea of revolution was spread to the oppressed Third Estate citizens and the divisions between the estates lead to an uprising which then created the National Assembly. The partisans of the Third Estate destroyed symbols of royal power through the storming of the Bastille and the Women’s March. The French Revolution is a great example of the violent lash back tyrannized people can have on incompetent leaders.
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
Chinese leaders could not collectively agree on an approach, and Beijing’s new rulers saw very little value in naval affairs. Seafaring expeditions proved to be costly, forcing higher taxes on an already depraved population. They believed that the financial risk was not worth the little return. Trade did flourish when the Chinese made connections with Western explorers, however the exploits of trade did not benefit the country as a whole. Mongolians and other raiders posed a serious threat to China’s frontier.
According to Feason in his book, Kansas in the great depression, he said; “Price falls also had a destabilizing effect in the farm community. Farm income was suddenly reduced, and it became especially services for operators holding mortgages who feared the real burden of their debt dramatically increased. Farm closures and the desperate, even violent attempt to prevent them became increasingly common news”, (p.2). This statement is showing how difficult, it was for the farmers and other U.S. firms to export goods. And being that the farmers make up to 1/3 of the nation in the 1930’s, their decrease in export and lack of income had a big severe effect on the nation’s economy.
They over exceeded the demand and the agriculture demand dropped excessively. Another

Although any of the treaties passed Parliament, but one that did was called the Olive Branch Petition. When the petition was brought to King George, he was very angered; moreover, the colonists believed that his taxes were unfair. He then declared soon after that all colonists to be traitors and should be put to death posthaste. Tensions had been growing for years between the two countries, but the King’s decision to list all colonists’ traitors angered them so much they decided to create their own kind of government. This scared Britain to the point of attempting
In the American colonies between 1763 and 1775, a burning desire for freedom and to rid themselves of the perpetual taxation sparked within the aggravated colonists; leading to the people of the thirteen colonies to declare their separation from Great Britain. The British government placed a multitude of restraints onto the American colonists which limited the colonies ability to develop as a region in the process. In 1763 the Proclamation Act was passed which forbade the colonists to settle West of the Appalachian Mountains and required people who were previously living on that land to move back to the East. The American colonist was extremely frustrated at that passing of this law since they won the French and Indian War for the British
He collected taxes without the consent of the estates general in order establish many things, fund a series of wars, build a bigger and stronger military and to build his palace, the Palace of Versailles, when it was built he insisted that the nobles spend more time there (Doc 2). This eventually led the nobles into debt because they spent most of their time and money at the Palace of Versailles. 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.
The French and Indian War left England with a debt of £130,000,000. To help pay off the debt Britain set up taxes, to collect money, on frequently used products by the colonists. The Molasses Act put a six pence tax on every gallon of molasses. The colonists thought this was a lot of money to pay so they did everything to avoid it. This act was not really enforced and the colonists did not really obey this act.
The panic also spread to Wall Street, where the prices of stocks fell rapidly. Investments were declined, and all consumer purchases, wages, and prices fell. The Panic of 1893 deepened into depression (P. 468). The depression led people to reconsider the roles of the government, the economy, and as well with society. People were thinking that the reason why they lost their job was because of their own failings but eventually understood that the crash was from the economic forces, the fault was
