Leeah Coady 1st hour Language Arts, Hobbs In the early 1930´s and late 1920's the Great Depression hit our economy hard, the stock market crashed and almost everyone was put out of business. Many things had happened during the Great Depression not only did many people get put out of business, many people got put out of their homes because all of the banks closed know one was allowed to access their money. As time went by during the Great Depression many people were not only becoming homeless and jobless but, many began to starve because lack of money. During the Great Depression to add on to all the chaos we had the election for out new president, and Franklin Delano Roosevelt was determined to put people back in their homes, get
The Western Roman Empire fell in the year 476 A.D, there were many factors contributing to the fall of the Empire, such as unconcerned citizens, population, expansion, religion, economic, slave labor, and the military. In Document 1 it states that people gave up on the Roman Empire and didn’t believe it was worth saving. Citizens weren’t allowed to take part in politics and were excluded from their own army. The government slowly lost support which increased the level of government fraud. Also, population decline was a big factor to the fall of Rome; it had decreased from 1,000,000 people to 250,000.
Some have suggested that the Black Death killed up to 60% of the European population (Byrne, Joseph P. "economic effects of the Black Death.”) but what is generally agreed upon is that a major percentage of the common laborers in many fields in which left Europe distraught and in dire need of a healthy, high percentage peasant population in order for the agricultural and societal labor demands of the years prior to 1346 to be met again without revision. In many parts of Europe what began to occur was that the laborers in which were in good health refused to work aside from when being compensated sometimes five fold more than the original pre-plague price value of the labor. During this period of time what began to occur was a redistribution of wealth and a ultimate beneficial period for those of the peasantry in which survived in that by comparison to their former lives they had gained land, higher wages and in many cases rights not previously held in relations to their lords as serfdom was beginning to become a relic of the former (Friedrich 136). This dilemma became increasingly unsettling for the lords in which provided compensation for the inflated work and led ultimately to legislation being passed in several countries and city states to return pricing order
During the mid-fourteenth century, a plague hit Europe. Initially spreading through rats and subsequently fleas, it killed at least one-third of the population of Europe and continued intermittently until the 18th century. There was no known cure at the time, and the bacteria spread very quickly and would kill an infected person within two days, which led to structural public policies, religious, and medical changes in Europe. The plague had an enormous social effect, killing much of the population and encouraging new health reforms, it also had religious effects by attracting the attention of the Catholic Church, and lastly, it affected the trade around Europe, limiting the transportation of goods. As a response to the plague that took place
The people who did grasp their money spent less on items that they needed because prices skyrocketed, which in return got people getting laid off from their jobs, worsening the economy and losing even more money. Then, the environment started to play a role. Major dust storms swept through the prairies, leaving farmers with no crops and no ways to get food or make money. These additional effects to the stock market crash made the banks take people’s belongings, homes, vehicles, and anything that they had. The future looked bleak during this time for many.
The culture and art of Benin disappeared do to the slave trade because the population decreased drastically due to enslavement. Sickness was a great cause of this also. The Native population suffered greatly when the Spanish arrived. Forced hard labor, starvation and sickness caused large numbers of deaths. The Natives were not immune to the many illnesses and diseases
This is because people were praying to God for years and no one got better and the plague kept spreading. Church authority dwindled and it was probably a factor that lead to so many HRE trying to either eclipse the church in influence or take over areas that simple were not up for grabs. However it could have had a long term benefit for Europe, skip ahead to Columbus time and you would see that Europe was running out of land to feed people. Since the plague killed so many people the future population was also decreased. If there were more people in Europe around 1492 we could see that the entire European landscape had been completely deforested and the wildlife killed out, people would be starving and an overall sense of urgency on finding new resources might have pushed for a sooner colonization of
This negatively affected the people who were migrating and were in direct competition for jobs with longer- established residents and would keep creating conflict with those people. “Many people were not able to make a living in drought-stricken regions and were forced to migrate to other areas in search of a new livelihood. ("Drought in the Dust Bowl") Many people had no choice to leave which affected them in a personal way because they had to forced to leave in search of a new livelihood because they will mostly not survive through the Dust Bowl.”In addition, because of poverty and high unemployment, migrants added to local relief efforts, sometimes overburdening relief and health agencies. ” ("Drought in the Dust Bowl")People were super poor and were not making enough money to pay for things while migrating so this would affect people and families and it was too much for relief and health agencies.“The poor economy displaced more than just farmers as refugees to California; many teachers, lawyers, and small business owners moved west with their families during this time. ( "Dust Bowl")The wealth and
Many laborers working under these company suffered due to the reduction of “the price of every labor connected with trade” (Doc 3). While these companies became wealthier, workers became poorer. For example, the laborers working in the Ohio railroad company barred train’s passage to rebel against their third pay cut. All forms of strikes and boycott emerged in the nation since no minimum wage was set. The workers risked their jobs to
