Cheap clothing and ready-made clothes from England flooded the Indian market and drove out local producers. Socio-cultural impact of British rule in India British rule in India left an intense impression that had long lasting effects throughout their rule.
The British Imperialism hurt Indian and its people because the British using India’s resources and living off the profits that were gained from there. Based on document 2, “All they [the British] do is live off India while they are here. When they go, they carry all they have gained.” During the British occupation in India, they made use of all the resources available there and sell those resources in Europe for a huge profit. They basically monopolize India’s resources. The British made it seem that they were actually trying to help India out.
Before the reforms were passed by Parliament, Britain was controlled by wealthy landowners and aristocrats. The workers began to realize they were not being well represented in the government. So the British citizens began to call for social and political reforms. The demands for reforms became too strong to ignore, and finally, Parliament agreed to change the electoral laws. While Parliament was agreeing to the Reform Act of 1832, one of its members, Michael Sadler was out investigating the treatment of children in the British Textile factories.
There were many economic reasons why there was turmoil before the Revolutionary War, which ultimately helped lead to the war. The Navigation Law of 1650 was passed to stop the Dutch shippers from trading with the Americans. The Navigation Law took away most of the trade that the colonists had. The Sugar Act was a tax on the colonists, passed in order to raise money for the war debts that Britain had incurred from the war. The Sugar Act made sugar have a higher price and took away food supplies from the colonists.
In 1858, the Government of India Act was passed which striped direct control of India from the East India Company and gave it the British Crown. British involvement and influence within India greatly affected the lives of individuals within India, both nations of India and Britain, and even the entire world. Throughout the rule of the British in India, the effect of the colonial and economic imperialism impacted individuals within the sub-continent in the form of many economic and social changes. On the economic side, many Indian goods were sold overseas by the East India Company, but the government of England viewed India as a large base for British goods; as well as, a source of raw materials. British officials discouraged Indian industry leading to a production of cash crops rather than food crops.

In consequence of enclosures of village farmland many people from the countryside went into towns to look for work. Because of the industrial revolution England needed workers, but it took advantage of their situation. There was a huge conflict between rich and poor, but it did not end with a revolution like in France. Queen Anne, the last of the Stuarts dead in 1714.
Dissolution of the monateries uk Why did Henry VIII dissolve the Monasteries?  Henry VIII started dissolving the monasteries in mid 1530s when his attitude towards them changed completely and he started to shut them down starting with the small houses and then the large ones. One of the main reasons for the dissolution has got to be the fact that there was a lot of wealth in the monasteries and with Henry spending a lot of his inheritance that his father left him he was now looking for new ways to build up some money to fund any military campaigns he was holding and getting all of the items of value would go down better than raising taxes again so Cromwell and his team were sent and they created a list of all the possessions of the monasteries. From that list Henry could see that the money involved in the monasteries is very high so the order was passed. The money was used to help Henry with the money issues he was in as he had a very lavish lifestyle and he needed more money as he had spent all the money Henry II had left for him and it was also a reason for his break from Rome.
Before the first world war had started the Germans over spent and went into a massive deficit because they thought that when the won the war they would inherit the country and its wealth. Therefore this justified the government printing large amounts of money in order to fund their cause. Another cause is the war reparations which they had to pay back was agreed at 60 billion marks in order to pay for this more money was printed, could this mean that it was pressure from other countries that were to blame. Though not the worst hyperinflation ever it did have some of the most devastating effects. In 1914 the exchange rate of the dollar to the pound was $1 to 1mark, by 1923 the exchange rate was $1 to 1trillion marks.
Britain's national debt doubled during the course of the war and the cost of extended empire cause a dramatic increase in the cost of living.

Some English leaders thought the colonists were inferior and gave them the lowly jobs during the war; they also resented the Americans for their increasing wealth with a rapidly increasing population. Once Britain decided to "intervene more actively in American affairs" disagreement and trouble aroused; the Americans were used to their freedom and were not ready to be dictated by a ruler (97). Due to constant attacks by the Indians and the cost of keeping America under British rule, King George III
There is nothing uniquely western about colonialism. For example many Indians believe that they should receive some form of payment from the British but before the British arrived India was conquered by a multitude of empires of countries such as the Persians, the Afghans, Alexander the great, the Mongols the Arabs and the Turks. So in order for the statement that they should receive some form of repayment is ludicrous as you would have to go back thousands of years in order to view all the oppressed and oppressive countries to try and make things “all square”. This simply is not possible. The west also had more hunger to colonise than the rest of the world.
