With the establishment of railroads in India, they became increasingly valuable to the British. Additionally, the successful supply of plantation crops such as tea, indigo, coffee, cotton, and opium, the British shipped opium to the Chinese in exchange for tea (Haughton Mifflin Harcourt 2017, 921).Comparatively, Britain struggled to establish forts and trading ports in Nigeria because of the vast competition along the West Coast of Africa. Nigeria was generally an inconsistent trade network to rely on because of the competition with other countries along the coast and problems within the country. Whereas, India had the addition of railroads, which increase the value of India to Britain. This allowed India to have a consistent and successful trade network.
Economic Effects of the Columbian Exchange Inflation of cash-crops, slavery and silver resulting from the Columbian Exchange caused a drastic effect on the global economy. Cash-crops forged new trade routes across continents, slavery supported New World exports, and silver caused power shifts in the world 's distribution of wealth. As Spanish expeditions to the New World increased in size and purpose, the economic effects on the rest of the world spread with equal vigor. The triangular trade circulated commodities between Europe, Africa, and the Americas. From Europe some commodities were distributed throughout Asia.
Adam Sedgeman Introduction The Gupta Empire has many achievements, and their greatest achievement was metalwork. During the Gupta Empire period 240 to 550 CE, metals, iron, copper, gold, and silver played a vital role in boosting the poor economic condition of the region. Items made from silver could only be afforded by the rich. Some of the most famous items made by the metal workers were the coins. The Gupta rulers were engraved into the gold and silver coins.
Because India was the middleman of the path, the Gupta Empire traded with both sides of the path to richen the economy of the Gupta Empire. Similarly, Pericles and Chandragupta II prospered their economies by trading, which contributed to the Golden Ages of Athens and the Gupta Empire. Both Golden Ages contributed a vast knowledge of unique culture. In Athens, Hippocrates, a physician, discovered to study the body as one working machine instead of individual working parts and Sophocles, a playwright, introduced different genres of plays and added a third person to each play. Likewise, the Gupta Empire classified over 1000 different diseases and had traveling troupes of actors to perform plays.
Gold was often a primary currency but over time it began to become expensive and laborious to continually mine. The introduction of silver as a major form of currency caused ripples of effects in many aspects of society and practically replaced gold in importance. Most notably effected were nations' economies (improvement of economies, loss of revenue) and societies (East actively seeking silver) but the effects on economy were often more influential because flourishing economies often brought new or expanded power for nations. (467,23,158) One of the largest shifts in global economy is that you see a huge increase in many countries imports and exports leading to more money and better financial standings.

The British Empire was a collection of countries around the world ruled by Britain, and each of the countries had valuable resources that could be traded with Britain such as wheat from Canada and tea from India. Also, like the slave trade, many ships were needed to transport these goods, which benefited the shipbuilding industry. Furthermore, many young people from other countries in the empire such as India came to Britain to find work, sometimes on-board ships. This gave Britain many new strong workers to do important jobs such as build railway lines or work in mines. Overall, the British Empire was an important factor in the development of the British economy in the 18th century.
Decorations include bold designs made from feathers, furs and pendants. The rich are draped in flashy jewelry such as unisexual earrings, bracelets and necklaces that are fashioned from gold. Headdresses, which are usually not for every day use, (ornaments included a variety of objects that the Aztec people would procure from shells and all kinds of colors to metals, feathers of local birds and beads or precious stones.) are worn for special ceremonies. For example, superior warriors called Jaguar Warriors are prized with feathered helmets that distinguish them for their bravery and skill (take
Throughout history, art has been created by the material most easily available to the artists. Spanning the globe, certain marbles, pigments, and clays define cultural artifacts. However, within the traditional western world, art transformed into a strict vocation and a hierarchy of materials such as oil paint and marble became the pinnacle substances of genius. As a rebuttal against the institutional canon began in the mid-19th century, artists have combined various materials in order to articulate expression and commentary on the changing political and social spheres. In addition, the material used for a piece of art has become as important in the narration of the work as the subject itself.
The most common activity is the art of sculpture. This art cuts across the entire empires due to the public’s changing tastes. Thus, it was a remarkable activity as depicted by its absolute variety and mix of ideas presented in photographs. The art blended the ideas of perfection from the ancient sculpture designs and the artistic preferences of the East in order to create sculptures from bronze and stones that are ranked among the top and finest works. Gupta sculptors had to make copies of original pieces (materials such as bronze, stone and glass) once they ran out of the original supply (Mookerji, 141).
