America had the resources to solely rely on agricultural, but the incoming of new inventions made it harder to pass up a great opportunity and America had to use these innovations to their advantage. The Industrial Revolution brought many settlers to America to work in the growing factories. More workers meant more production, thus creating an economic boom in America. This economic boom was also the start of prosperity for the people in America. The fact that people would travel West and have a new way of life using the new technology and at the same time being able to have land that was all their own.
“Because of the worldwide demand for wool was growing rapidly, landowners were converting their land from fields for crops to pastures for sheep” (Brinkley, 2010). With land plots decreasing for crops and the effects of a war-torn Europe upon them, migration to new lands became more and more enticing. As migration took place, new land was obtained. With the new land came an expansion in economic incentives, from new trade to new crops. “Second, the discovery of the Americas provided the Old World with vast quantities of relatively unpopulated land well-suited for the cultivation of certain crops that were in high demand in Old World markets.” (Nunn & Qian, 2010).
African groups of people were also split up into kingships and because so many of them were being imported to Europe they brought their type of community wight hem when they were traded, one can see that the slaves definitely form something similar to these types of groups when they were settled down. The Atlantic Slave trade also affected Africa socially through the demographic side of things. The slave trade created an offset in the sex ratio which caused decline in the population. It put Africa off-balanced and created man problems for them while the Europeans experience expansion of their class system and the further development of capitalism. Economically the Atlantic slave trade changed the way these countries work.
B. Possesses such large fang-like teeth that it cannot close its mouth. Instead they curve backwards through the fish’s mouth, very close to its eyes. C. Kills its victims by impaling them on its fangs, by swimming into them at high speeds. D. Uses a light organ as a lure to attract other fish towards it. The viperfish uses a process called ‘Bioluminescence’ to attract its prey.
Shark poaching is a big concern because it affects the future of sharks and their place of living. Poaching is the process where people get rich by catching sharks on long lines, cutting their fins off, and then dumping the remaining body of the shark back into the ocean to suffocate and bleed to death. Shark poachers seek financial gain and at times religious value, however, by doing so they fail to realize the negative impact that their actions have on the environment and the shark species. “Sharks have made it through multiple mass extinctions on our planet, now many species are going to go the way of the
All of these items were very cheaply made, but in Africa they were considered as very expensive and so all of these goods were then to taken to the docs in; Glasgow, Liverpool or Bristol. The goods were then taken on Board the numerous ships which were to set sail to Africa. Along with them of the wealthy British Merchants also took board the ships, which then sailed them to Africa. Then, these exclusive possessions were to commerce with Black African Slaves. The British bought only the healthy and strong looking slaves, both men and women, these slaves were then marched to the market and places into chains, from there, they were marched to the coast and once again examined to see whether they were healthy enough to withstand the hard working and living conditions, also if they were usually branded high up on their shoulders or high up on their backs.
On board Slave Ships-English * Captives on the slave ships were often of poor health from the mental and physical abuse they suffered. When taken on board, they were stripped naked and examined from head to toe, by the captain or surgeon. * The conditions on the ships were appalling. The men were packed together and secured with leg irons. There was no space and everyone was cramped, often having to crouch or lie down.
Breshna Halim February 1, 2012 Causes of the Industrial Revolution in the US Thesis: The causes of the industrial revolution in the US were the increase in population which provided a workforce, more profit in industries, and the importance of technology that allowed for mass production of goods in factories. All these causes helped grow industry by offering jobs for people without any work which made physical jobs faster and more profit came into the industry. The industrial revolution affected the immigration in the United States greatly by growing industries and businesses. Alongside the fast growth in population, medical systems had also improved; therefore there was a reduction in the number of disease that spread resulting in death through lack of medical knowledge. From this, the percentage of children who lived through childhood also began to increase, therefore the future workforce would be even large than previously.
The European traders exchanged cheap and high demand goods such as pots, pans, guns and ammunition with the African chiefs in order to obtain the slaves. It was cheaper to attain the slaves from the chiefs than to purchase them from forts. The second stage began from West Africa to the Caribbean. This was known as the Middle Passage and was very devastating for the slaves as they suffered great hardships. The last stage was from the Caribbean back to Europe.
Although the population of enslaved persons was large, the amount of slaves who died was large as well, due to mistreatment and diseases. In contrast to Brazil, The Caribbean had large productive lands that were transformed into sugarcane, cocoa, coffee, and cotton plantations. Sugarcane plantations were considered most dangerous because they had the highest slave and infant mortality rates. Because of these high mortality rates and large plantations, The Caribbean constantly spent money to replace enslaved workers. Instead of reproducing slaves within their own population, The Caribbean bought new recruits.
