When the cotton gin was invented in 1793, cotton came to be very lucrative. This machine had the ability to decrease the time taken to separate seeds from the cotton. However, with the number of the plantations willing to change from growing other crops to cotton increasing, there was a greater need for a large amount of cheap labor which was achieved through slavery. This resulted in the Southern economy developing a one crop economy, which depended on cotton and consequently on slavery. In contrast to the South, the Northern economy was centered more on manufacturing than farming.

Concisely, african slave trade provided labor power that develop plantations around the Equatorial region and Caribbean. In order areas it was a supplement to labor for a declining indigenous population.
Slavery During the Enlightenment and French Revolution During the Enlightenment and French Revolution, the National Assembly, the government that took over France during the French Revolution, wrote the Declaration of the Rights of Man, which stated, "All men are born and remain free and equal in rights." People living in France and in the colonies of France started to wonder if that applied to the slaves in the West Indies. Although many consider slavery to be simply a social issue the enlightenment and French Revolution shows that this issue goes far beyond morality. Despite being thought of as morally unjust, the philosophers, slave owners, and political leaders, whose thoughts once contradicted each other, had to agree that slavery was a necessary evil if the economy was to prosper. Despite the fact that slavery allowed white aristocrats to maintain power while fattening their wallets the thought of the enslavement of another human being caused Enlightened France to fight over their freedom of these people, even though it would hurt the economy, social, and political order of France.

Most of the African Americans were just slaves to the Whites. The African Americans didn’t usually have any say in their lives because they were unequal to the Whites. The African Americans were forced to sharecrop because they could not afford their own land. Their pay was less than minimal. The African Americans were treated unfairly and they were the first group of people that were laid off during any economic downturn.
For example, in the south, African Americans had little chance of being employed against white people, due to the discrimination of employers. This trapped blacks in a cycle of poverty; if they couldn’t get jobs, they couldn’t afford to pay poll tax so they could vote for someone who would improve their employment rights. Also, southern African Americans had few employment opportunities. For example, sharecropping and other agricultural jobs were the main opportunities. African American women were treated even worse than men.
The lack of usable land in Russia and the subdivison of land between families both resulted in an incredibly low income, especially for larger families. This combined with the illiteracy of the people and refusal of the Tsar to provide basic education meant that there was no way to escape the misfortunes of life as a peasant. The poor harvests of 1900 and 1902 worsened matters even further and fuelled the peasants anger. The famines and starvation that followed provided sufficient evidence that the Tsar was not a born leader, “gifted and sent from God” as they had been taught to believe, but a weak and incompetent leader, incapable of making decisions or change. Another issue was that whilst the Tsar encouraged the industrial growth of Russia, and was keen for the country to become an industrial power, when peasants then left the land to work in the developing enterprises, they discovered that their living conditions did not improve.
