In Pax Mongolia the origins of the peace were slightly different. Instead of policies enacted it was the conquering of lands under Genghis Khan. But more importantly it was the connection of the Silk Road from Asia to Europe. Gunpowder, porcelain, and paper making were goods that came to the West because of the Silk Road. Political stability of Mongol rule also helped the Silk Road flourish as well as Pax Mongolia to come about.
The taking of their precious metals was such a strong action by the Mongols, proving to be a powerful catalyst to the Russian's economic descent. Unlike the Mongols in Russia, the Mongols in China wasn't as detrimental and even was positive in a few ways. Politically, the Mongols allowed the ethnic Chinese to run the Yuan bureaucracy, somewhat reuniting the Chinese politically. The one notable negative effect of the Mongols in China was they forbid Chinese scholars to learn Mongol script which was used for upper level government. Sure, the Mongols
There were many things that the Soviet Union helped China with however, did not to the whole of China. The Soviet Union assisted China by sending military and political advisors to China and, Chinese radicals were sent to the Soviet Union. A military academy was also established in Guangzhou. Without he Soviet Union carrying this out, the GMD/KMT would never have realistically been able to challenge the warlords which was a huge benefit to China because they needed to remove the warlords however were not able to. This was instrumental in gathering support.
The effect of Mongol rule on Russia and China was similar in some respects and different in others economically. The Mongols affected both civilizations similarly in that the Mongols demanded tribute from both empires. Although it was similar that Russia and China both had to give tribute to the Mongols, it affected both civilizations differently. For example in Russia, the peasants were taxed very harshly, turning them into serfs. Also in Russia, all of the tax went to Moscow because Moscow was the tax collector because Chinggis Khan did not live directly in Russia, so this helped build Russia’s wealth.
The amazing closeness yet separateness of these advanced civilizations can be expressed in a number of different ways. One of those similarities is that emperors used their religion to justify their power. An economic difference between Mesopotamia and China is China’s smaller scale cultural diffusion because of natural barricades making it a difficult place to reach. These two factors express the ways in which China and Mesopotamia are similar yet different politically, economically, religiously, and
The Khan of the Golden Horde attempted to introduce paper money as a response to currency shortage. The citizens rejected the paper money, and it pushed the economy into a depression. Paper money was also introduced in China, Iraq, and Iran. The Russian language also became important during this time. Due to the contributions of some of the Russian princes who cooperated with the Mongols by acting as agents for them and collecting taxes, the Mongols provided protection for them and the land they came from.
The rule of the Mongol people in Asia affected both Russia and China in many ways both economically and politically, however, because the Mongols directly ruled China, they had a greater impact on the country of China. One economic similarity the Chinese and Russians shared under Mongol rule was that using the rule of the Mongols, the reinventing of the Silk Road helped both countries economically by increasing safe trade between countries, trading mainly silk from China and fur from Russia. The Mongols also affected China and Russia in the new types of political system or the trade of power that occurred: the Chinese created a bureaucracy while the Russians ruled their people with feudalistic tactics such as princes/vassals of the Mongols. The Mongols also created sufism in Russia. The political impact from the Mongols was much more centralized and uncompromising in China rather than in Russia, where political impact was didn’t have as much effect.
Despite the similarities, each ancient civilization had differences that helped them become the great civilizations we study today. China was united under a single ruler for the majority of its time, while India was unable to be united until the Mauryan and Gupta dynasties rose to power. They both had economic differences too. For example, India had better access to trade and more things easily available to trade. The two civilizations also experienced social differences, like India had a very strong caste system, and China valued its peasants more than India.
The first key problem Google faces in this situation is choosing between whether stay faithful to their own beliefs or to follow China’s rule and become a tool for that country to keep their habitants ignorance to the truth. Google beliefs and ideals are that they want as a company make the world a better place but them agreeing in a censorship in China will go against this ideal and they need to decide what was most important. It was at the end an ethical issue that has a cons in every way they looked at it. If they decided to stay faithful to their ideals they will lose a very valuable market but if they choose to comply with China rules them they will go against everything they were building since the company
The Spanish were able to mine the silver with some economic benefit quickly turning into negative inflation, and the British were able to buy from the Spanish and Japanese and sell to the Chinese as middlemen. These were three regions of the world that participated in the silver trade. The Chinese economy suffered because while the Europeans sold silver to help pay for other commodities, the Asian countries bought silver effectively ruining their economy in many ways. The impact of silver imports was huge in China during the Ming dynasty. Most people thought that buying silver was the best economic choice, but because as silver was bought in such high amounts from Europeans the economy suffered in the fact that the abundance of silver deflated reducing value from what it was bought at and was hardly used as a form of economic currency considering the amount of silver that had been obtained.
