Other kingdoms and countries followed the trend of discovery, found their own new lands, and colonized them. This caused the power of these governments to grow. Newly discovered trade routes allowed trade between Europeans and Asians to cause an economic increase. Ideas were also spread along these trade routes. Military technology grew, gunpowder a technology from China was becoming a popular weapon in the European monarchies.
One of the more important factors was understanding the economic power of china. China supplied for and consumed products of this trading network. They also provided technological innovations. Another factor was that there was a sudden rise of Islam and its spread across the Afro-Eurasia world. This creation of the Arab Empire brought together a political system in range of economies and cultural traditions thus providing a vast area for trade.
This influenced colonisation of North America due to the fact that population growth threatened to undermine the existing social order as the government did not know how to cope with the growing number of people and they struggled to find places for people to work without causing social disorder. It was important at this time for countries to mobilise economic resources so that all resources could be narrowly focused on a common goal, such as industrial or commercial expansion. That strength of the western European states which could be mobilised lay in conditions that permitted the growth, on the foundation of initially landlord and peasant economies, of industries, trading activities and services whose productivity was relatively high and which in favourable circumstances could originate innovations in technique or organisation or effect regular capital accumulation. The western European countries all experienced rapid population growth until the end of the 16th century. The growth of population, supported by more abundant money supply, was at the base of an economic expansion that was general during the 16th century.
Population growth had played a large role in the urbanization of cities, and affected agriculture, placing a larger reliance on these systems to provide food for many. 4. Trade had served as a focal point in the economy of southern India, with interior trading occurring, affecting economic development largely. In terms of trade centers, temples had acted as a meeting ground, with large areas of traffic, as well as taxes, and banks existing. 5.
Different geographic locations have lead numerous migration movements throughout history. Based of off the third chapter of the fourth edition history textbook titled, "Worlds Together, Worlds Apart: A History of the World: From 1000 CE to the Present” by Robert Tignor, there has been migration movements due to climate issues. The third chapter states that due to drought and food scarcity in the third millennium, nomadic and transhumant migrants had to leave the central and western
Triangular trade led to world economy growing rapidly as more goods were being made and traded more than ever before. In conclusion both religious factors and economic factors played a huge role in the colonization of America, but in different ways. The British wanted to ensure economic dominance through their powerful monarch. The new settlers came seeking a better life, along with wanting to create a society based on freedom. To each their
Globalization is the removal of nations borders allowing for not only free trade by the abolition of customs and tariffs that has occurred due to GATT Uruguay Round, but also free transition of cultures, language and demolish of a nations’ identity. This is the agreement that the industrial countries (power countries) have come up with in conjunction with global agencies as World Bank and IMF, to allow for cheap sourcing of raw materials in exchange for industrial development of third world countries. Many scholars and critics have attacked this system as they see that globalization clones the colonialism model, by which, industrial countries (power countries) continues to extract and exploit resources of the non-industrial countries (namely their ex-colonies) (Linstead and
As per World Culture Theory of Globalization (Robertson, 1992), though there exists an impact of globalization on societal and other socio-cultural processes, but still it operates independent of these constituents. It is important to note that, breaking old social orders and enabling new solidarities, there exists global movement of religious ideas, money, tourism, food and technology. As per (Robertson, 1992), there is no single driving force to globalization, but contrary to this there exists a popular notion that there is a pecuniary interconnection to the globalization process. At different times throughout the history of mankind there have been integrated dominant casual forces in the process of globalization, such as, religion, culture and technology. One has to understand that the basis of World Culture Theory of Globalization forms from the fact that “globalization is not a monolithic concept but has a multidimensional aspect attached to it”.
