Duane, and Roger B. Taney, until he found a secretary willing to distribute the money from the National Bank to smaller banks, Levi Woodbury. With this, local state banks had all the responsibilities and power of banking; only they could give out loans and invest. But, after irresponsible investments, the banks quickly lost the funds and began the process of the U.S. falling into the Panic of 1837. On top of the bank’s misjudgments, the value of the paper currency was falling due to Jackson’s Specie Circular, an act that made only gold and silver an acceptable currency for land. Such economic instability undermined the people’s faith in the economy and eventually lead to the Panic of 1837, a major financial
He was the first president to openly defend the practice of replacing many of the officeholders. However, after the Peggy Eaton Affair Jackson he replaced his original appointed cabinet members. It appears there was corruption throughout his presidency with the Indian removal by using military action against them. His personal feud with Vice President Calhoun over nullification, tariffs, and gossip. In addition his misuse of presidential powers by destroying the Bank of the United States.
The Sugar Act, also known as the American Revenue Act or the American Duties Act, was one of the laws that led to anger, dislike, disagreement, and eventually revolution in Colonial America. Another effect was an increase in smuggling and crime in the colonies. The colonists did not want to pay the outrageous taxes so they looked for ways not to have to pay. A third effect was the colonists decided to stop buying luxury products from Great Britain and looked to local manufacturers for their products. They did this to avoid paying the high
In order to gain rights, the colonies wanted to be recognized as independent. The colonists were justified in declaring independence from Britain. Parliament was unwilling to listen or negotiate with the American colonies. Included in the Declaration of Independece is a List of Grievances against King George III.

Jackson soon defeated Clay in the election and began to make his own changes to the bank. He ordered his treasury secretaries to remove federal deposits from the bank and to place them in 23 state banks so that he could destroy the Second Bank. His first and second secretaries refused and faced the consequences, but his third secretary finally agreed. The Second Bank soon became bankrupt and slowly
During the Proclamation 1763,the first cause is Economic problems such as; Colonists resented Mercantilist laws. For example colonists were forbidden to trade with other nations. Also the halt of westward expansion meaning that the colonists couldn’t go passed the Appalachian mountains. Both of these caused the colonists to maximize their profits.

Furthermore, as the United States succumbed to the great depression, they sought to retract the loans made to Germany. Thus, Germany’s already weakened economic state coupled with the collapse of their economy led to the rise of angry, ultra-nationalist orators such as Hitler, who blamed Germany’s Jewish population for being war profiteers, effectively dividing Germany into Aryans who were viewed as superior to the inferior Jews. President Paul von- Hindenburg appointed Hitler as Chancellor of the Weimar Republic in 1933 believing that Hitler’s energized base would turn out for him. Hitler eventually expanded his role and assumed total power after the death of President von Hindenburg. Upon his usurpation of the position and the expansion of his powers, he became Germany’s Führer, passing the Nuremberg Laws against the Jewish populations and instigating Kristallnacht, which legalized all violence against Jews.
Once in America, the British fought many wars, including the French and Indian War in 1754, which left Britain in great debt. It was only fair to tax the colonies because the war was fought on American soil. It was only for the American freedom and to exile the French, but the Colonists took this the wrong way and declared the separation between them and the British Parliament. The Colonists should have never wanted independence from Great Britain, because in reality, Britain was providing freedom. “All they asked for was loyalty and money for debt due to the war’ (Gregg 1).
In a political standpoint the British negatively affected India because of their crooked government which was supremely British controlled and because of their military that was forcefully imposed on the indians. A mister Lalvani once stated “When the British east empire company arrived in 1613 India had no central government system” (Lalvani) but the government that the british had set up was responsible for bankrupting majority of Indians during the famine of 1770, due to the steep tax increase imposed during that time (doc #3). Showing that the british have no interest in the well being of the people they were governing, even in their time of need. The british along with establishing a government, put into place a military “the Indian army

The Sugar act was unfair to the colonists because The second thing that made the Second Continental Congress want to break from Great Britain were all the Acts, specifically the intolerable acts. The intolerable were a set of acts set in place in order to punish those who had taken part of the Boston Tea Party. One of the intolerable acts was the Quebec Act.
