The British introduced a parliamentary system of government to the Indians. As stated in document 3 by Romesh Dutt, “Englishman has given the people of India the greatest human blessing – peace.” They have introduced Western Education. This has brought an ancient and civilized nation in touch with modern thought, modern sciences, and modern life. This means that the British have positively affected India because they brought over their knowledge and educated the natives, which results in more skilled workers. They also modernized India with their economic system of Mercantilism, and their parliamentary form of government.
Once they expanded they came in direct contact India. The Han dynasty had to make more roads and canals in order to make it easier, and more organized to trade. The rulers of the Han Dynasty enforced peace throughout the entire empire. Peace leads to a time of great prosperity. The Han Dynasty took after the Qin dynasty.
These events caused what appears to be a strengthened Anglo-American relationship, and made it appear as ‘peaceful and harmonious’ however, there are other factors which must be considered by historians in order to solve this question. Speaking in terms of economics, it is likely that the relationship between the colonies and the mother country can be described as ‘peaceful and harmonious.’ Leading up to 1763, Britain had started to fully accelerate in the industrial revolution. This of course meant that Britain needed to Import lots of raw materials, and export a high quantity of manufactured goods. This was good for the American colonies, as it had a huge amount of raw material, and needed more manufactured goods, almost creating a perfect trade scenario between it and the mother country. In addition to this, the idea of mercantilism meant that American trade was protected by Britain, and this was advantageous as Britain was one of the strongest economic powers in the world at the time.
British had introduced to the colony many new manufactured goods, technology, education, means or transportation and most importantly, better and quicker ways of communication (Document 1). The colonies were educated the same way as the British and gained knowledge. This established developments of territories for building roads, building and telegraphs, as well as schools and newspapers for the colonies as well. The British they helped India in many kinds of ways; they developed types of communication ways, stopped the practice of killing girl babies in India called infanticide, and irrigation works was expanded and advanced the agricultural wealth of the country (Document 4&5). Not only did they westernized their education with modern sciences and modern life, but they also made a frame for the to establish laws and courts of justice (Document3).
Despite some advances and indications of stability, the aspects of East Germany that are considered to show instability carry far too much weight to be overlooked. Perhaps the greatest show of stability in this period was the economy. By putting a great emphasis on the importance and consequential growth of heavy industry in the GDR there was a huge increase in industrial production, which set the base for East German economic growth. Ulbricht raised quotas of industrial production by 55%, showing the power of heavy industry and its key role in improving the economy. Collectivisation of agricultural industry meant that required industrial quotas could be achieved, and produced a much more efficient and effective industry.
They would be able to establish schools and newspapers for the people of the colonies. The benefits of imperialism to the colonizer were natural resources, money, and land. They were also able to give these people the benefit of other blessings of civilization (Doc. 1). When the British colonized India, they had 40,000 miles of railway and 70,000 miles of paved roads.
At first obtaining land was difficult, primarily because a lot of the land was inhabited by the Native American tribes, but after compromises and agreements were made, the States were able to obtain much more land; the greater the amount of land owned by America the greater the economy was. During the 1760’s America’s economy was on a rise, trading was a huge economical booster. The Fur Trade that started in the 1670’s was still going on and was still a positive correlation for the economy of Colonial America. Cash crops such as tobacco and rice also contributed to the economic value of America, merchants were essentially pioneers, using the stable crops of tobacco and rice to pay for the merchandise for New England (Risjord).
Our economy has changed a lot throughout the years. The 1800s was vital economically for the United States. The events that occurred caused the United States to establish itself as a world power. The new inventions and the boost of the industrial revolution caused the United States to become one of the most predominant countries in the world. An event that sparked a lot of the events that had to do with boosting the economy during the 1800’s was the agricultural revolution.
There were many economic, political and social causes of British Imperialism. Economic reasons were that Britain wanted to benefit from Africa and India’s resources, labor and new markets. Africa had large supplies of accessible resources. Gold and diamond were two of the most valuable resources that were abundant in Africa. (Doc.4) These resources
resulted in minimal support for annexation. And finally, the overall economic problems of the British Empire held them back from fully supporting their West Coast colony. Despite British Columbia’s apathy towards the Canadian Confederation, the Confederation offered them the best option, thus winning their support. In 1858, the discovery of gold along the Fraser River brought thousands of miners and economic prosperity to the Fraser River area. Higher tax revenue, sales of prospecting equipment, and the increase of food demands and supplies all lead to a period of steady growth of economy.
