Silk was made from silkworm cocoon and two-thousand to three-thousand cocoons are needed to make 1 pound of silk. Camels were trade for 14 bolts of silk because camels can walk miles without water and could carry loads of stuff. The people who mostly trade are called merchants. Merchants were willing to sacrifice themselves for camels because they are valuable. In conclusion, China has many accomplishments and rises as one of the world’s greatest Civilization in political, economic, social/cultural.
Also the Romans traded for silk at expensive prices from Persia and China, but the Byzantines thought to learn how to make the silk from the Persians so that they could make it themselves. The Byzantine Empire was not a continuation of the Roman Empire because the Romans would have never thought of learning the skill. The Byzantines learned how to make silk and then they no longer relied on the Persians for silk. (Document
Additionally, the “silk industry also benefited” the conquest (Doc. 6). This opened up contacts to China and other places along the silk road. All the Mongols wanted was wealth so they had gone like a parasite getting all the money they could by going to other
First, Peter the Great thought very highly of taxes. For example, he issued the beard tax that changed the way people were to live their lives. These taxes also played a huge rule with widening the gap between the wealthy and the poor. Emperor Qianlong however is not known to have harshly taxed his citizens. In fact he was known to cancel taxes and rent charges because the treasury was so full.
Not to mention they were an easy scapegoat for the problems America faced. If it was an economic crisis, the Chinese were easy targets, and the hate would just build and build towards them. Apart from blacks, I don’t think there has been so much hate that the government of America decides to stop immigration flow from China, and
Qin had ruled and lived from 221 until 206 BCE and the Han dynasty from 206 BCE until 220 CE. But these men were definitely not the ones to create this Great wall, It was the people who no one would expect to create much such a big, powerful wall that went down in history. The ones to create The Great Wall of China were the peasant's soldiers and slaves. And many had not come out alive. The Great Walls did take much sacrifice, but it had been worth it keeping out invaders, terrorists and anyone wanting to destroy China itself.
Spain didn’t have the ships to transport all the silver, so merchants would transport it and resell the silver for more. China wanted a lot of silver, so other merchants would trade with China. "most of the precious metal made its way to China, where a thriving domestic economy demanded increasing quantities of silver, the basis of Chinese currency. "3 Merchants would exchange silver for gold in China, then they would trade gold for silver in Japan and would make a profit because silver was worth more in China than it was worth in Japan. Finding silver at first helped the Spanish economy because they accumulated a lot of wealth through the silver.
The Mongols had traded for centuries with border posts and had recieved gifts and money from Chinese courts (Document I). With this said, this meant that the Mongols weren’t completely barbaric as they were described to be. If they could maintain trade with other countries it meant they weren’t bloodthirsty and crazy. Mongols built canals to improve transportation and communication (Document J). This meant that Mongols cared for more than just conquering and destroying cities, that they were actually civilized.
(). Human trafficking in China is a profitable international business that is spreading out owing to various factors, including the high-pressure implementation of the One-Child Policy, a faulty legal system, and the blind bond to long stagnant cultural traditions that degrade women.In China, Communist Party directive overlook the legislative and judicial process. The primacy of government policy results in the ineffectualness of laws that theoretically defend and protect female and women in China. (Li,1996)8 In 1992, the Law on the Protection of Women 's Rights and Interests ("LPWRI")(Tiefenbrun,2008) was passed, which was the first basic law to protect women 's rights and interests in China.7" The LPWRI forbid kidnapping, trafficking, and buying women, though it fails to prescribe any special penalties for these offenses. (Tiefenbrun,2008) The LPWRI also fails to stipulate a definition of discrimination against women.
That is how business stuff happens specially marketing; they make things seem very good and wanted so everyone would like to buy and not to just buy one but more than one until people lose their money. What happened in China happened before in Japan and America maybe in the same way, but they said that it was way more in China. It seems wired isn’t it Asians always seem smart enough not to fall in this thing, but I have to say seeing those house makes me want to buy it so much but not living in it is a very wired thing, I mean I have a house it’s very great it’s good enough for me and my way of living why leaving it why not living in it. Bubble Economy was a well known thing that makes a disaster for countries and leads poor people to think of nothing but
The Great Wall of China: Did the Benefits Outweigh the Cost? The Qin and Han dynasty built the notorious wall we know today as The Great Wall of China. Although, The Great Wall of China has many benefits, but it does come with some costs. The benefits of the wall are great I do not think they out weigh the costs. For example, in document c, it states that they lost many people of their civilization.This means they would lose soldiers to protect the wall.That is not a good thing they need all those people to have an army.Now another cost that involved the wall was they would have less space and have not as much food which was code into document a.They would have to go out and risk there lives to find food and also go on a trek just for
Chinese did not really used the invention of gun powder for military use, such as weapons a lot. They used it more for the invention of fire crackers, to wash away the bad spirits. As of today, all over the world they use gunpowder for all sorts of weapons and fireworks. The military has large supplies of gunpowder for use when they go to war, which the Chinese did not really use weapons that much, only for the weapons they used to secure their borders with the other
The Mongols did not trust the Chinese, so they had foreigners come in to govern the people. They took away the traditional Confucian way of government. In the Middle East, the Mongols took the highest positions, but gave the lower positions to the people showing that there was more trust. The Mongols didn 't disrupt the original government, instead they used it to their advantage. Mongols
One law was the Interstate Commerce Act which helped to economically aid workers. This aided workers because railroads had to openly publish their rates, so their companies could not be charged more than they deserve to be charged. Prior to this law, railroads could charge large companies very little and small companies too much. Another way the industrial worker was affected by government actions was through the Chinese Exclusion Act, which affected the workers socially. This act outlawed all Chinese immigration to America for ten years, although it actually lasted until 1943.
At this point in time China was at the top of the charts when it came to productions and sells. America knew they needed to be able to trade with China, so the Open Door Policy was created. This policy insured that all nations had the right to trade with China. Up until this point China was an independent nation, however they were very weak and poor due to European dominance. They were not thrilled about the Open Door Policy but they accepted it because they in turn were able to trade openly which expanded their influences.
