After centuries of advancements in agriculture and commerce towards economic stabilization, “Rome became the greatest center of consumption of all, and Rome’s population rose to a million by the end of the first century BCE” (Smith). With a rapidly growing population, commerce was more crucial than ever since a reliable source of food was also necessary. Water routes within Rome itself increased the interdependence of cities as well. Rivers, mainly the Tiber River, became apparent as an essential route from inner Rome to the Mediterranean Sea. Alongside water routes, land routes also contributed to the increasing commerce around the world.

To start, Americans were able to sell this gold in exchange for loads of money. One man who only had a piece of land that was four feet square “got thirty pounds of gold in less than a month.”.
The first way that the economy was impacted was that with the ease and efficiency of the railroads, they created a large demand for goods and labor because they needed a lot of people to help build the railroads and also needed a large quantity of steel for the rails and wood for the railroad ties. Secondly the railroads created a huge national market because of the simplicity of delivering goods from place to place. The railroads helped the people in even the most rural place prosper with the cost efficient transportation of the trains. From 1830 to 1861, the United States laid aproximately 30,000 miles of railroad track, which led to an increase in demand for coal which was used to produce iron for the
Settlers went into searching father to discover it was found below earth’s surface that requires more digging deep within the mountains, often most difficult gold extraction. This often requires explosives, underground drilling, or underground tunnel system. This was dangerous for the settlers due to the fact underground tunnels are unpredictable with their high temperatures and collapsibility. The last method was hydraulic mining, this was used when gold discoveries began to subside, settlers needed to search for gold they dug even deeper. This required new technology, however this technology caused more destruction than good to California’s

It costs $44 to purchase 100g of Molybdenum, and it is sold in the open marketplace (“WebElements Periodic Table”). Personally, I believe Molybdenum is a benefit to society. Without it, all types of steel could not be manufactured with the great rigidity that it has; also, there are other uses for this element, such as a lubricant, ink, and pigment, the steel industry certainly relies most heavily on it. With all the good it has done since its discovery, Molybdenum is undoubtedly a huge benefit to
She also says that a sanitary landfill uses a clay liner to isolate the trash from the environment. Meanwhile, the methods of waste disposal have improved over time. Also, that getting rid of garbage is quickly becoming a big problem due to our methods of waste disposal are only a temporary solution. Moreover; the waste that can’t decompose
Off shore dredging of sand and shingle in adjacent areas increases erosion in other areas and significantly affects the ecosystem in the dredging area. Large storms easily degrade beach replenishment inputs, thus increasing costs. £20.000 per cubic meter Managed retreat In areas where Managed retreat is permitted, it retains the natural balance of the coastal system. The eroded material promotes the development of beaches and salt marshes in specified areas. Many people lose their livelihood, for e.g.
