They did not conquer far lands to learn about their culture, religion, or advancements, but for their own greed. Another improvement they would boast was not only new items and products to trade, but untried trading ports and routes and new territory to trade and acquire even more materials. Spain also wanted more and more land. They wanted to secure more territory than Portugal and to demonstrate their superiority through their fief. At the time, Spain was also very religiously driven and wanted to convert as many people as possible to Catholicism.
It benefited only few and those of which were the Spanish who conquered the land only until much after the conquest. It did not benefit the Spanish because once they conquered the land it states in the book "Soon after conquest Spanish America came to rely on silver mines for foreign exchange and Portuguese Brazil on sugar. Gold, found in many parts of Spanish America, was discovered in Brazil just before 1700" (Lane, Restall 67). They had to depend on other sources for gold and sugar. Even after they came across problems such as slaves revolting against them, problems with the maroons, and/or runaways.
Long, holds the idea that the government should intervene in industry in order to share wealth across all classes to provide equal opportunity, while President Hoover advocates as little government intervention as possible without actually becoming laissez faire. I agree more with Hoover, although Long makes some points that I do not necessarily disagree with, such as opportunity of inheritance. I use Haiti as an example in distributing wealth after gaining independence. Without large economic and industrial holders, they were never able to advance in technology or business because no one had the resources to get it started. I do not blame the top 1% for the economic downfall of the lower class, but I see larger social problems as the main source especially in American Society.
The British population in North America was rapidly growing, hence they required more land to settle the new populace, and more resources to feed and clothe them. Neither the British nor the French had any settlers in the land but the British required the land for a place to settle their booming population and the French want to protect their economy, in the trade from the Indians. Both looked at the Ohio River lands as land which could be, as if it belonged to no one. But this was untrue as the Ohio River Indians had been living on this land for a long time.
The original colonists that arrived at Jamestowne forged a wreck in the society and a collapse in the economy. Rather than aiming their intention at actually forming a state, they hunted for wealth that was nowhere. Their misguided assumptions held on as they bounced into la la land. However, the economic boom that Virginia later experienced didn’t occur because of gold. As a result, Jamestowne settlers experimented with cultivation, vineyard, silkworms and even glassblowing.
Pizarro went just South of Panama, and found some gold, but needed more funding than he had to go further, because they ran out of food and other supplies. This made Pizarro want to go on another exploration and get more money so he could get more than he did. Going with his friend made it easier to pay for and it helped having someone who has knowledge on exploring too. When Almagro and Pizarro founded Peru from their exploration, Lima is founded in 1533 as the capital of Peru. These explorations were the highlight of Pizarro’s career, and this was how the people of Spain really learned his
The vinnet states that Gil “...doesn 't turn on the lights, unless you got money to buy things with…” This shows that Gil can’t even afford to pay for electricity to turn on the lights. It says “...once I bought the Statue of Liberty for a dime.” This represents Esperanza’s wish for freedom from poverty, but it could foreshadow that if she gets the money that she needs, something unfortunate will happen . I think this because the Statue of Liberty represents freedom, for people coming to America.
After Spain laid claim to the New World in 1492, all subsequent Spanish social and economic relations with indigenous people were constrained by Royal Decree. Spain’s agenda for settlement and exploitation was undertaken primarily by priests, military men, and officials – not private individuals acting on their own. Their goals were to reap maximum economic, military, and spiritual benefit from a minimal investment of personnel and resources. Spain wished to establish an idealistic, pluralistic empire that reaped glory for the nobles who received commissions as field commanders and governors, jobs and opportunities for the Spanish middle class, riches for the Crown, and souls for the church.
First, the Spanish and the Navajo got into a conflict, but that put an impact on New Mexico History. It all started when the Navajo moved to where the Pueblo lived. It was easier to adapt to the new environment, because the Pueblo had already lived their for over one thousand years. In the time frame the Pueblo had learned how to farm on dry, rocky, desert land. They knew how to go crops with a small portion of water.
“By the end of the 16th century, promoters of colonization could argue that Europeans should establish settlements in the Americas because this territory had become, to them, a grand shopping emporium where whatever Europeans wanted could be found. Reports of travelers printed across the continent made knowledge about American resources common and encouraged further colonizing
Gilded: covered in gold, but that’s not the reality of this age with political corruption and corporate financial misleadings. Gilded in this case was anything but gold. Political, social, and economic conditions in the late 1800’s such as the railroads built in the south made by the slaves who were uneducated due to segregation which was ignored because slavery was over, making it seem life was golden leading to the term The Gilded Age. There were laws against certain people coming into The United States. This country was supposed to be a place of freedom, yet we were stopping people from coming into this country, certain things such as the Chinese exclusion act of 1882, which was then followed by restriction on admitting criminal + mentally ill.
From 1600-1763, several nations vied for control of the North American continent. These nations included Britain, France, and Spain. The Spanish came to the North American continent because they wanted riches and to convert the Native Americans to Christianity. The French came to the continent to have new trading allies. They aligned themselves with the Native Americans to trade furs.
When English royalty began giving charters for the exploration of America, people had no idea what kinds of adversities they would face. While eager to obtain new land and sources of economic growth, many ignored the possible negative outcomes of exploration. English settlers would be forced to overcome human and environmental challenges that would make it difficult to establish and maintain permanent colonies in America from the time of Sir Walter Raleigh to the time of Opechancanough. When Sir Walter Raleigh organized the expedition to Roanoke, the primary reason to go to America was the possibility of establishing a profitable colony.
The Portuguese Empire Started in 1415 when the Portuguese soldiers captured Ceuta. The four other major Colonizes at this time that were continuously spreading was the Dutch, the British, the Spanish, and the French. Portugal colonized in Brazil, Africa, and India, they also attempted to colonize in North America but failed. The Portuguese were effective in colonizing in the Atlantic world because they constantly gained more land and they governed it for many years.
“The Crucible of Empire: The Spanish-American War” documentary explain how the U.S got involved in a war that was between Spain and Cuba. Cuba wanted their independences from Spain. They wanted to have power over their own government and not stand under Spain which they have been for many decades. President William McKinley didn’t want the U.S to get between the two because he felt the U.S must avoid the temptation of territorial aggression. No everyone felt the same way as him, assistant secretary of the navy Teddy Roosevelt thought that a war with Spain over Cuba would make U.S a world power.
