Mansa Musa was one of the greatest rulers of history and achieved many goals. He was the tenth rulers of the Empire. The pilgrimage to Mecca was legendary which represented the wealth of the empire and made him well known ( Lin Donn, Mansa Musa). Numerous structures were built under his reign such as Gao mosque and the University of Sankore. Also, the Dijiongoereber mosque was built as an education center and became one of the massive empires of the world.
The Triangular Trade was a trade system between England, parts of Europe, Africa, the West Indies, and the Americas. Between these countries slaves, cash crops, and manufactured goods were traded among each other. One of the biggest influences from the Triangular Trade was the huge economic growth. Since the American colonies were a part of this trading system, there was increased trade throughout the nation. Things would be sold for money, or traded for other products at an equal sum of money.
While the prevalence of malnutrition (height for age) in areas with an urban population share below 20% is 48.9%, this figure is only 25.3% in areas with an urban population share between 50% and 90%. The same trend is found with weight for age: while the rate is about 26.2% in areas with an urban population share below 20%, the figure is only 9.5% in areas where that share is between 50% and 90%. Differences between urban and rural areas in health care centres and access to health facilities explain the differences in life expectancy and childhood malnutrition. On average, only 46.2% of African children are taken to a health provider: only 41.7% in areas with an urban share less than 20% and 51.2% in areas with an urban share between 50% and 90%. Moreover, births attended by skilled staff are only 38.3% in areas with an urban population share below 20% and 78.0% in areas with that share between 50% and 90%.
Virginia, having the largest African population, had a total of about 67,000 people, just over 15,000 of those being of African descent. In comparison, Massachusetts had the lowest, compared to their full population. With a total population of just over 55,000, less than 5,000 were of African descent. Most slaves were treated brutally and given practically no rights. The need for labor and having it be free, was critical in the colonies at this time.
The early republic had frequent wars and changes in policies which eventually led to a collapse of central authority and economic contraction. In the republic of China, after the fall of the Qing dynasty, new industrial developments resulted in an increase in demand for Chinese goods. This demand led to an increase of profit for the industrial workers. Years later around 1931, the rural economy of China hit a Great Depression. The Great Depression was caused by an overproduction of agricultural goods which led to an increase on imports and falling prices in the Chinese market.
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.

This inflation also had an effect on agriculture, because the prices of grain fell drastically. Wang Xijue that the Ming government “requires silver for taxes but dispurses little in their expenditure,” and this results in lowered grain prices (Doc 6).
In fact, the average tax on the British people became four shillings for each pound. Trade between Great Britain and the thirteen American colonies also collapsed, causing many British business people to suffer financially. The overseas market also dried up. Income from the sale of metal and woolen products also dropped sharply because overseas trade decreased sharply during the war period. The war also affected British merchant sailors, as 3,386 British merchant ships were seized by the colonist armies.
Distilleries were being shutdown due to the ban of production of alcohol. Railroads lost products to distribute, therefore, profit was lost. Stores where alcohol was sold had less product to sell, therefore, money was being lost. Since alcohol had a high tax, the tax revenue decreased tremendously, which caused more government spending. (Alcohol Prohibition)
Between 300th century and 1400th century, the most powerful African kingdoms had achieved great goals, such as developing a trade system. The empires in Africa had a solid economy which was supported by their trade. Before the Europeans arrived, these empires had hierarchies and roles in society, which helped the trade system flourish. Some achievements Africa accomplished included trade, wealth, and a complex society.
When I hear the term “New England,” I automatically picture a beautiful land that was filled with natives and Europeans who worked together. I picture Europeans who supported each other. I also picture colonists who were free from all persecutions for their religion. I saw them as people who understood and accepted outsiders unlike the Chesapeake colonies. Prior to reading the textbook, I knew that the colony in Massachusetts was home to the first Puritans.
China on the other hand had more problems in its bureaucracy and civic unrest. For example, some peasants who had lost their farms had to sell their children into service. A third difference is that as previously stated, China had a successful revival while Rome did not. Rome divided and the Western half survived but was diminished by attempts to regulate the economy and decline tax revenue ’s.
The Black Plague was a widespread disease that found itself spreading all throughout the Middle Ages disseminating its deadly symptoms among the growing populations of the Middle Ages. The disease started in Europe in 1328 and lasted until 1351 although there were outbreaks for the next sixty years. (Alchin). An estimated 7500 victims of the disease were dying every day (Alchin). The illness gets its name from one of its most well known and most common symptom, buboes, therefore giving it the name the Bubonic Plague.
