These factors impacted the American Imperialism from 1890-194 by having control over weaker territories meeting our expanding needs. The economic interest for America was to support the industrial boom of the 1800s the U.S. needed.
Imperialism is the economic and political domination of a strong nation over a weaker nation. New imperialism was motivated by the second Industrial Revolution and by the competition in Europe, as many nations wanted to be viewed as powerful. New imperialism focused on trade in Africa and Asia. Europe had economic interest and needed raw materials for factories. This lead to the Europeans to force colonies to send all their raw materials back to them.
In conclusion, imperialism had countless negative effects on the world today. It resulted in slave trade, caused cultures to be destroyed and took away countries’ natural resources. Had it not been for imperialism, the world today would consist of more diverse cultures with less discrimination and countries would be able to use their resources as they
History not only explains what happened in the past but reveals how humanity has transformed. Throughout centuries, there’s this identification where societies have all had a similar thought-process: “never having enough,” which led to migration, expansion, and mobilizing, one example of this is the age of exploration. In spite of this movement that led Europeans to a favorable position for abundance in new land, new resources, and capital; this was an adverse effect towards colored populations because it established systems of slavery, oppression, and inflicted inhumane treatment. Although the era of exploration was an advantage to multiple countries, it became catastrophe towards civilizations of color because Europeans ' bias created inequality that reflected when they communicated, when revolts occurred, and when offered assistance. These historical events led a distinction of white superiority towards the colored societies, in fact, it expresses through their communication with one another.
He gave an example that connected the monopolized banking system in Germany to the development of imperialism. As the advancement of industries, the German banks gradually played a significant role in finance and eventually became so powerful that they could manipulate most of the industrial cartels in Germany. As the severe competition increased, these cartels made less profits and suffered more the financial burdens. Consequently, the banks accompanied by the cartels were eager to export their capital to foreign lands. With the help of the imperial governments, the cartels strongly vied for foreign markets to expand their capitalist markets in the world.
America and Europe were both competing for global supremacy in trade and technology, but the idea of globalization scared both of these regions. Both America and Europe improved in various degrees from the inspiration of one another.

“Our claim to be left in the unmolested enjoyment of vast and splendid possessions, mainly acquired by violence, largely maintained by force, often seems less reasonable to others than to us” (Darwin). This statement symbolized imperialism among Westerners from the 19th to the early 20th century. As such, this period revealed the extent that several world powers underwent for even greater power and influence. Therefore, the destruction of other societies, the deterioration of their traditions, and the exploitation of their citizens were commodities. The primary causes of imperialism were the social attitude, the economic interest, and the strategic reasoning.
"Imperialism is a policy that aims at building and maintaining an empire, in which many states and peoples, spread over a wide geographical area, are controlled by one dominant state." The idea of Imperialism is fuelled by the desire for economic and political power over other people and nations and this movement was led by European forces such as Great Britain from the 18th - 20th century. The colonisation of Australia, Africa and the Philippines are all examples of Imperialism, and while there were some positive outcomes for colonising nations such as Great Britain, there were tremendous detrimental effects on the people and cultures of the colonised nations. Racism and the general disregard and mistreatment of the native and indigenous
State Power Before the 1990s, governments held the power of authority and, in collaboration with unions and international private organizations, could enforce human rights regulations in manufacturing. Rapid growth brought by globalization, however, “has led to an institutional mismatch” (Wettstein and Waddock, 2005, p.305) between MNCs and the State, resulting in MNCs possessing increased power, thus representing the decline of the regulating state hypothesis. As MNCs expanded and dispersed their authority, governments lost their “ability to enforce regulations upon private sectors”, leading to “a weakening or transformation of the State” (Crouch, 2011). As a result, debates have arisen over the extent to which States still possess authority
Additionally, Boss Tweed became head of Tammany Hall. In the next several paragraphs, I will be explaining my three reasons how a changing economy impacts the rest of the country also and how the economy improved.The changing of the economy had a negative impact on the rest of the country because whenever something was changed it made the economy worse in the different types of acts. The changing of the economy had a negative effect on the Homestead act by when the homesteaders started moving west and the Indians began to have to deal with strangers. Capitalism was not good in the West because the Native Americans were not happy because the white settlement’s government took over and the Native Americans had to assimilate to their culture.

11. The War of 1812 stimulated the national economy by allowing America to continue economic growth and territorial expansion. Republicans had hopes for a simple agrarian society. The war exposed the inefficiency of the transportation and financial systems. It also caused the growth of manufacturing by cutting off imports, producing chaos in shipping and banking.
Most of the goods that were brought to the colonists for trade were heavily regulated by the British government and priced much higher than usual (Edgenuity). In exchange for these overpriced goods the colonies bartered a wealth of products such as whale oil, timber, and tobacco. The uneven weight of trade value between the colonies and Britain caused a negative flow of economy between the two, one that could only be fixed through loans from British banks. While this greatly boosted the British economy, the setup would lead to an eventual crash and a large colonial debt. When the colonists realized this, they began to boycott British goods, they hoped for the British to lift the heavy taxation and to equalize the cost of goods.
Historically, Western countries and Asian countries always have differences because of different geography, culture, languages, politics and others. Most of West imperialism happened in European courtiers. Beginning of West imperialism, the European countries more focus on gathering scarce resources such as silver, gold, ivory, pepper or slaves from Africa and Indonesia. After these happen, western countries had the industrial revolution. From the industrial revolution, the European countries need lots of labors for the mass of productions, and the place where they sell for it which was their colony countries.
he United States benefited from the situation after ww1. American industry had escaped destruction, the nation had a head start on converting its economy from one focused on war to one focused on consumer production. Throughout the 1920s American businesses prospered because of a frenzy of spending on the new consumers goods. Recovering from the war economically proved to be a more difficult task han winning the war militarily. The Allied nations were heavily in debt and their resources had been depleted because of the high cost of paying for the war.
The parasite that carried the illness was brought to Europe when traders came to exchange their good with Europeans. This in effect started the problem with trade and trickling down to the economy. According to Stuart Borsch (2005), between 1086-1300 the Black Death brought one of the most significant changes in economy and lifestyle. The wealthy landowners had to bargain with the workforce on a case by case and person by person basis rather than one agreement for the whole workforce. This made it more profitable for the workers and less profitable for the landowners, which caused some change in the wealth structure.
