Prior to the “five year plans”, Russia had mostly a peasant farming economy. The 1750 to 1914 period in Russia was met by a large increase in the available labor force. Coupled with an increase in population, Russia's emancipation of the serfs freed many of Russia's serfdom from perpetual slavery. However, the emancipation process was planned so as to put the freed serfs deeply in debt to the original owners of the land. In fact, many of the serfs were so deeply indebted that they relocated to Russia's cities in search of better work opportunities.
The arrival of Euorpean traders in the 1500's made the Chinese government nervous and as a result, isolated the people for fear of cultural changes. However, because of the high demand for goods, trade continued to take place illegally. When the dynasty collapsed and the Manchus took over, trade was controlled overseas. In the Qing Dynasty, trade made for a huge population growth in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Trade with America caused this growth through their introduction of new crops to China.
Expansion affected the nation in many ways other than size. It also affected our country's population, culture, economy and social structure. America's economy was the first to experience the effects of Westward expansion. Most of the settlers that moved out west were planning on becoming farmers, if they were not already farmers. Along with new farmers came new products that the United States (US) could ship out to other countries as a profit.
South Carolina threatened to secede because of the aftermath of the Tariff of Abominations; it shrunk English demand for southern raw cotton and increased the final cost of finished goods to American buyers. 12. The Northern population grew
This was because 80% of the population lived in poverty and although the serfs were emancipated in 1861 they were still forced to pay redemption payments up until 1905. An increasing population meant that rural disturbances were growing as 1905 approached as a shortage of food and land became worse as higher taxes were put on those who could barely afford them in order to pay for the industrialisation of Russia. There were also disturbances from minorities who wanted an end to Russification, like Georgia and Poland who wanted autonomy and independence. As well as this, the growing industry in Russia meant more and more workers were moving to towns and cities in order to find a better life when in reality there was only low wages, poor living conditions and long hours. Due to this discontent began to grow in more densely populated areas and from the later part of the 1890s more and more strikes were happening.
It also affected the economy as payrolls, pay rates, salaries, or wages decreased as the population increases due to rapid urbanization. The rapid urbanization and soaring population also resulted in rapid spread of diseases due to the condition and situation of the new industrial city. 2.) How did the factory system change the way people worked? Prior to the Industrial Revolution, most of the people migrated from farms to cities, also known as urbanization.
This paper will focus specifically on the culture similarities and differences of Mexican Americans, Puerto Ricans, Cuban Americans, and Central and South Americans. Mexican Americans are seemingly the fastest growing group of immigrants to the United States. Most Mexicans migrate to the U.S. because they see a chance to better their lives and the lives of their families. In the Mexican culture. With a growing number of Mexicans migrating to the United States, it is no surprise that Mexicans are starting to run for political offices here in America.
After the rule of the Mongol over Russia, many of the free peasants had fallen into debt and were forced to work as laborers on the large estates owned by nobles. The Russian serfdom system expanded as more land was added to the empire. This similarity exists between these two systems of forced labors because as both the Spanish and Russian empire expanded, forced labor became necessary to maintain the empires’ economic status. The best social classes to demand labor from are the poorer social classes, in this case, the Russian peasants and Native Americans of the new world. Another similarity between Russian serfdom and the Spanish encomienda system is that both the serfs and the natives were born into their social class, thus born into the system of forced labor, although
After the Ming dynasty declined due to civil unrest, led to the destruction of Ming Dynasty. 3. Intentional effects of the Columbian Exchange are the following: cash-crops trade, colonization (in terms of making a home, and expanding culture), power (social status), population growth of slaves in Africa (for more slaves), forced labor, occupying land militarily, and taking advantage of diseases by allowing the Aztecs to be wiped out in Mexico. Unintentional effects of the Columbian Exchange were the diseases that occurred, and the sudden population growth due to cash crops specifically in China 4. First it was discovered by Spanish, then they began to mine it using forced labor of natives and slaves, after they had obtained
However, this was not the case. Many Immigrants were flocking to America to escape from poverty, persecution and revolutions in their home countries. This created a lot of hostility as Americans feared that immigrants coming into the United States would have an effect on american society, socially, religiously, economically and politically. Historians have argued over what was the main cause was for growing hostility. Contributing factors are; the changing nature of immigration and entrenched WASP racism, pre-existing legislation before 1920s, WWI and isolationism, economic fears, social and religious fears, and political fears.
