This effect was economically positive because the British created new goods and crops that were available for the natives to buy. If Africans had the right to certain goods, then that meant there was more equality as well. According to Document #2, written by Dadabhai Naoroji, an Indian leader and writer, in Bombay, India in 1871. He made this document to explain the advantages and disadvantages of the imperialism to the British government and the natives as well. He gives economic reasons to back up his facts about what is good or harmful for the area he lives in.
War broke out between the Sunni and Shi’ites after a Shi’ite leader claimed the title of Imam and began to establish Shia rule throughout the Middle East. Unfortunately, the conflict between the Sunni and the Shi’ite is one that still goes on today. When Europeans were brought into the Middle East as advisors and trade partners to the Ottomans, the culture in that region changed further. European military tactics and weapons were adopted, direct trade was established, and modernization became the goal of Ottoman society. In India, there was also religious turmoil.
During the pre-civil war time period— also known as the antebellum years— America experienced a widespread transformation for the sake of its economy. With the booming belief of the Manifest Destiny, America’s constant desire for westward expansion caused disputes between the North and the South regarding the establishment of free states and slave states, which led to certain compromises such as the Missouri Compromise. After the Market Revolution, the North and South used its new gained land to create different means of economic gains; the North became industrialized through manufacturing, while the South became an agricultural industry dependent on cotton. However, as America’s boundaries expanded, tensions between the North and South grew, often leading to compromises in bloodshed. The drastic differences between the two groups eventually transformed America into a divided nation of sectionalism economically, politically, and socially.
While the Mughal empire was collapsing (the last seat of power before the British came) The East India Company came Hailing from the great British empire to seek out India’s potential and profit. After the sepoy rebellion in 1857 the British government came at the beck and call of the company to take over. India was no longer a trade partner, it was now a colonie. The British government made the political piece of their rule as efficient as possible, dividing the country against each other
North America was greatly impacted by the Imperialists. The Portuguese took sugar cane grass from South and East Asia and they planted it in Brazil. Then, they sold the cane sugar to Europe and North America. This sale made North America involved with the Triangle Trade. “The triangle trade fed the innovation-driven insatiability of British mills.
Mercantilism shaped the life of eighteenth century Colonial America by regulating their trade, by economically weakening them and putting them in debt, and by socially creating the tensions that led to the Revolutionary War. The principle of mercantilism caused Britain to regulate Colonial America’s trade. In 1584 Richard Hakluyt wrote a defense of the benefits of western planting. In the defense, he states that Britain should plant these new discoveries quickly and in a couple places, so that they are not precluded by other nations who want to do the same
The embargo of 1807 reduced the amount of desperately needed foreign goods. To compensate for this deficit, enhanced manufacturing became necessary, seen most notably in the Lowell System in the Northeast. The inventions of Francis Cabot Lowell allowed the Boston manufacturing company to coalesce all of these processes and procedures in the facility at Waltham. With peace, New England became a textile mill center (Borneman 259). This progression of manufacturing led to a larger middle class, as people found the desire to buy luxury goods for themselves once again, leading to economic enhancement.
Although both India and China were colonized by the British, there were many differences between the two countries and the effects imperialism had on them. In the 1600s, the British East India Company gained trading rights for the Mughal empire which was in modern day India. As the Mughal empire lost power, the East India Company
More specifically, mercantilism stated that a nation’s exports should be higher than its imports. The British brought these policies together to form Navigation Acts for the colonies to follow such as exporting items like indigo, hemp and tobacco exclusively to Britain and where they are exported to. At first, the Navigation Acts made the colonists content because with the new regulations, colonists were able to import British goods such as tea and dishes, however, as time went on, British rule later tightened regulations using the colonies for its own economic advantage. Britain exploited the colonies by imposing a rule that colonial exports and imported goods would only be controlled by British merchants. Britain was able to profit off the colonial raw goods by setting fixed prices on crops sold by planters, forcing all planters to abide to fixed rates which they could have sold for more.
Even though the colonies began with the intention of aiding England, they had begun to feel independent. There were many economic, political, and social causes for the American Revolution. There were several direct economic conflicts that led to the American Revolution. For instance, the Sugar Act is often considered one of the main factors to lead to the revolution and was imposed by the British to regulate transportation of products such as sugar and molasses (Kelly). This act gave the English the capabilities to monitor the colonists more intensely in order to make sure that they obeyed.
