Document 1 [Ye Chunji] gives a quote about how Chunji has noticed the social gap and how the upper class is becoming increasingly unsatisfied and greedy; whereas document 3 [Wang Xijue]tells more of the economic social gap between the two main classes and explains how the economy is aiding the social gap through the harvest. In document 7 [He Qiaoyuan] another Ming court official talks about how China makes goods that are worth maybe 100 silver coins but sells them for triple that amount. All three of these documents also contribute to the fact that the Ming dynasty played a major role in the global trade of silver. During this time the economic impact of silver in Spain can be seen in Documents 2 and 6. Document 2 [Tomas de Mercado] shows that the ballast stones used in the ships on the outgoing trip were replaced by silver during their return trips; while document 6 [Antonio Vazquez de Espinos] claims that from 1545 to 1624 a total of approximately 326,000,000 silver coins were taken out of the mines in Potosi.
It is apparent that he achieved this as 50% of peasants owned their own land by 1915 due to the introduction of the Peasant Land Bank on 15th November 1906. Also, agricultural output rose by 20 million tonnes between the years 1906-1913 meaning that Stolypin’s agricultural policies made a significant difference. Therefore, this suggests that Russia had moved in the direction of economic reform as this is all evidence towards an improvement in Russian economy between the years 1906 and 1914. Stolypin directly targeted the economy as a way to improve the Tsarist position as he believed that a more stable peasantry would lead to a more stable Russia. Consequently, it is accurate to say that Russia had moved in a large way towards economic reform in the years 1906-1914.
Emperor Wu was one of the longest reigning emperors in Chinese history, ruling from 141- 87 B.C.E., partly due to his ingenious ideas and austere policies that he implemented during his time as ruler. Emperor Wu quickly discovered that the cost of running a large empire and army was exorbitant and came up with policies to help fund them. Responding to popular demands for lower taxes, Wu lowered duties for the people and in its place he erected dozens of iron foundries and salt mines that he monopolized. (Comegna, 2016). As a result, prices for these commodities escalated and led to populace unrest and calls for the policies to be abolished.

They created new currency for the economy. The United States population grew along with the economy. Hamilton’s other plan was to put a high tax on whiskey. It was to restore public credit and that required new taxation to pay the interest on the large national debt.

The 90’s reform brought a restructuring labor system, which only increased even more the unemployment rate and the gap between the high-skilled population and the majority: the unskilled. Finally from the 1990’s to today, the recession that Argentina is still facing, is a product of one crisis after another, this has not only had a negative effect on the inequality trend over the last ten years but it has driven the government to take immediate measures to improve the aggravating situation of today.
