Being a European settler trying to make for a better life for my family, I would choose to settle on the Great Plains. The Great Plains would be my choice to settle because I could buy a lot of land for little to nothing. Of course there would be difficulties that came with the inexpensive price of land, such as that of the land being extremely dry and flat which isn’t of course the best for farming.

French Louisiana: Economics and Development When Louisiana was first settled in 1699 by French immigrants, the colonies of the newly formed state were in an impoverished, unprofitable position. The colonies' destitution was due to the lack of resources provided by their new land and government, as well as France's political and economic negligence. However, after long years of poverty, the colony would one day turn a profit by trading their naturally occurring precious metals for paper money and land. Though the early settlers had been drawn to America with enticing tales of wealth and freedom, France was unable to finance it's settlements; the country's national bank had already been depleted by various European wars.
