Indian ocean trade For the better part of the seven hundred years these merchant ships were to free to sail to any sea šwithout the need for pretection from the navy. Many more people participated in the indian ocean trade than the silk road mainly even though Europeans didn’t enter the trading in the Indian ocean. People would act as middle men where they would buy stuff to sell it more than they bought it for and even buy new items to sell later. Another factor about why the continuities of the trade lasted is that with seaborne trade you can bring large cargo of goods such as cotton cloths or timbers that you normaly cant strap on a camel or any other domestic animals at that time. Not just products made their way across the eastern hemisphere but also ideas and new technology thanks to the indian ocean trade.
Before, much of the goods being traded were done so by land (i.e. the silk road) and it was very time consuming and large amounts of cargo was not possible to be carried across long distances. It was the through the introduction of refined ship building and navigational tools that much of commerce started taking place by way of sea. Tools like the compass from China and better maps allowed for less dangerous travels on sea and places that were difficult to reach became much more easier to get to. Also long distance trade became more effortless in carrying cargo weighing in the tons.
Also they can go for weeks, even months without water if they have to. However, when they do drink water they can drink up to 40 gallons in one go. Since camels don’t sweat, they retain much of the water in their bodies. People living in the desert depend on camels to help them survive. Camels are very strong and can pull plows in hard, dry soil.
CAC China Between the years 500 and 1750, China’s involvement in trade and decisions regarding global trade greatly affected their economy. China has always participated in local trade amongst Chinese societies, however new technologies brought change in the trading system and the people the Chinese traded with. There were also time periods of isolation from other countries that were established in order to have less western influence. Transitions with new rulers, advancements in technologies, and expansion of their empire caused for Chinese economic growth or continuance. Many foreign invaders tried to conquer the empires of China for thousands of years, one of which was actually successful.
The light bulb also made the streets safer during the night. It effected the country because the average amount of sleep a person got in those days was 10-12 hours a night, but if you compare it to now people only average out to sleep 6 hours a night. The Gas-discharge lamp was better than the Electric light bulb because the Gas-discharge lamp lasted longer. Many people switched their lights from the Electric light bulb to the Gas-discharge lamp for their companies because they lasted longer and saved the companies more money. The Gas-discharge lamp was also very hard to manufacture.
An example of this would be that the Chinese and the Arabs, who had compasses, were able to cross large expanses of open water without the fear of getting lost or injured. Another change in commerce from 650 CE to 1750 CE, was the amount of trade and commerce being executed. As powerful city states began to flourish because of trade and commerce, more economic resources were made available to different regions and kingdoms. Because of these city states that served as centers for trade and commerce, the amount of products and regions that participate in the trade has grown and expanded drastically from 650 to 1750 CE. Also, as trade and commerce intensified, many
The building of canals, Turnpike roads and railways allowed raw material within Britain to be transported to where they needed to be quickly. The British Empire has plenty of trading ships allowing cheap raw materials (cotton) to be brought back to Britain through Liverpool. Trading ships also carried finished goods from the mills out of the countries and canal boats, horse and carriages and trains later on transported finished products throughout Britain. Building a mill, equipping it with machines, and buying the materials to get it up and running was expensive; meaning the products made had to be sold for a profit. Often meaning that the materials needed were bought in overseas colonies for unfair prices and sold on to make a large profit some of which went back into buying new equipment to allow more cotton made faster and at a lower cost, increasing the profit even further.
OPDA had a better administration than the government in terms of tax collection through using certain techniques as double-entry book keeping and not hesitating to use armed force given to them in the local areas. The strict implementation of OPDA or the Regie Company was not accepted and appreciated by the farmers for long years. One indicator for this was increasing cases of tobacco smuggling, which made the local representatives of the company continuously complain to the government and employ more and more company workers in years. Nevertheless, the OPDA could collect taxes more efficiently which meant a larger tax burden on farmers and a greater capital outflow from the Ottoman economy. As a consequence the OPDA played dual role.
This is strange considering paper is recyclable. Recycling seems to be an issue because we don’t do enough of it as a whole. So much recyclable material gets wasted and thrown into landfills. If we recycled more, it wouldn’t be nearly as much of an issue that landfills are taking up too much space. They inevitably continue to grow, but we could do more recycling to slow down the growth rate of these landfills.
