Carnegie's main concern was how the wealth was administered throughout the country, responding with the notion that the rich and poor ought to bind together and benefit as one. He noted that not only had the conditions of their lives changed, but had actually 'revolutionized,' creating a vast contrast between the social classes.

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.
