Another difference was the difference between who did the work in developing the colony. The colonies differing views on religion also helped shape the way each colony developed economically. The Virginia and Massachusetts Companies both realized that they would need to have a strong economic system, but their views on religion and profit had too many differences and resulted in different systems. The Puritans did not feel the need for “excessive profits” and lived by the belief of self control. The use of company labor and overpricing caused a lot of problems with Virginians.
One aspect that Wolsey did have great impact was justice, with him introducing many new ideas. Although, some of his policies were unsuccessful such as the Enclosures, the policy that was the most unsuccessful and almost a complete failure was the amicable grant. This was a factor in Henry’s lack of trust in Wolsey during the latter part of his position as Lord Chancellor. The first part of his domestic policies, and arguably the most successful one is justice. Unlike his other policies, the justice system was now greatly improved by Wolsey.
They started off right away by sending over family units instead of single males like the Virginia colony was started. The heads of the households that came over were proven workers from England that were able to start working immediately and were skilled aristocrats. They were males that had worth over in England so they had more power then many of the men that moved over to live in Virginia, who in contrast had no power. The Virginia society was built off of single men that were trying to start over. They were built more to live off of the land.
By the time the British colonies incited rebellion between them and the British in the 1770’s, they had grown to be powerful and economically independent, the population growing by a factor of eight from 1700 to 1770. British economic policy, is largely to blame for this, driving people to the new world and providing a framework for the economy of the Colonies to grow. The British would also commonly turn a blind eye to those who breached their rules and laws, and this too helped develop and diversify the American Economy. Furthermore, the adoption of a comparatively aggressive mercantilism by England led the colonies to grow much more than those of France and Spain, further pushing them out of the equation. Altogether, British Economic policy was a perfect mix of both salutary neglect and enforced protocol to spur a large amount of growth in British North America, doing so not only through just the Navigation Acts and Salutary neglect, but also the order in which they introduced new laws and regulations.
All payments went towards the king, this would've also made the Earls not feel powerful enough, especially Harold Godwin who was seen as the most powerful man in England, but theoretically he wasn’t. However the Economy was well governed because the trade increased, which encouraged both the growth of towns and foreign contacts, this demonstrates that England were still involved in trade, which was good for the economy. However the economy was not very well developed especially compared to the Byzantine Empire and Muslim world. Those economies were massive, especially when compared to England’s. Overall I believe that the economy for pre-Conquest England as well- governed to an extent as the King did have large control, he did control this well, but he may have been seen as too powerful where the government is concerned.
I feel like it is important to the United States because this is the way it has been for a long time. We can try and change the fact that race and ethnicity is not an important factor to us but it will not stop. Other races came to America to have a free life. The white always thought they were better than any other race. I think that it is only one true race and that is the human race and it should not make a different to anyone about you race or ethnicity.
Similarities of beliefs. 2. Differences in beliefs. E. Conclusion John Locke and Thomas Hobbes had some similarities in theories, but also a lot of differences. The combination of their beliefs has created a strong form of government that is still used today.
While Holland was religiously tolerant, the country required the Pilgrims to work difficult jobs that were hard on their bodies. In addition to health concerns, the Pilgrims were afraid that the younger members of their congregation were losing touch with their English heritage. They felt like embarking on a journey to the New World would let them establish a community with their own religion and English culture (17). The Pilgrims’ journey was supported by a group of investors known as Merchant Adventurers. Represented by Thomas Weston, the investors were responsible for finding a boat to transport the Pilgrims and periodically sending them supplies during their first years in the New World.
When people do things for the right reason, others may think less of the people working toward good causes. People making important decisions should not care what others think as long as the right decision is made for the right reasons. Dr. King did what he thought was right for equality, which in the end cost him his life. He didn’t care that many white people disliked him for his outspoken beliefs. This quality clearly distinguished him as a great person and leader because he was willing to put his life on the line to get his dream to become a
The British had a modern culture with higher technology , trade goods, clothing, and more distinguished culture than the Indians. They also knew the importance of education and religion which is still instilled in us now. However, the french didn’t. Their wasn’t any public interest of justness for the Native Americans, they were just victims of the British and in the long run had to move to Canada heartbrokenly starting their lives all over again leaving in the past their memories. This doesn’t make me happy because I don’t agree with the British kind of behavior but I do understand that at the time their form of life was what America needed and because of that it helped create the New World.
