This helped strengthen the relationship between merchants and the empire . The tribute and trade systems incorporation with the empire had both positive and negative impacts on the civilization. On the positive side, the empire promoted commerce and trade throughout their land, and exotic goods from obsidian to bronze managed to reach the households of both commoners and nobles.

Rome’s trade has excess to North Africa, the Middle East and Europe. Han’s trade consisted more of an inland route. These political instruments helped the civilizations control and expand during their rule.
Louis the 14th was a very powerful king that had many positive influences over the country of France. As absolute monarch, Louis the 14th had an incredible strategy for ruling and improving his county, making him noteworthy of the title as the greatest king in the history of his country. Louis was able to increase France’s economy by producing its own goods to trade with other countries, as opposed to purchasing goods from other places, which proves to be more costly.

This helped Britain gain such a large Empire because by fighting and winning these wars they gained more of the land and more power over the people, it gives them more money and riches and they show themselves as the dominant country. They were able to then go and gain the other sections of India. Another way Britain gained such a large Empire was through trade. For example when the EIC (East Indian Company) started to trade in India they made money for the army and Britain as a whole, they also gained the trust of the people by trading fairly, and they got well paid in crates of spices, calico, gems and silk by the princes and Maharajas of India when the British helped them fight their battles. This helped Britain gain such a large Empire because by trading they got money and power so that they could send out exploration ships and armies to go to other countries and take it.
There are various reasons for Great Britain to start the Industrial Revolution in the 1750s. Factors that benefited Great Britain to industrialized were the country’s geography, natural resources, agricultural change, and last but not least political and economic conditions. It happened in Great Britain first and soon started to spread to France, Germany, United States, and Japan by the end of the 1800s. Later, industrialization spread throughout the world, which became a huge advantage for the nation’s economy and government. As an island nation, Great Britain had many natural resources and harbors.
During the war, the US has increased in defence spending. US navy ships rose from 600 to 1000, air force increased from 42 wing groups to 72. Which also helped the US to be equip itself to be the ‘World’s police officer’ This shows how the US military gained a lot of money from the War benefiting them in war, as they were better armed. As a result this raised more businesses to profit from more defence weapons as they were popular in demand (‘the military-industrial complex). Therefore the money raised helped the American economy and living standards which hence shows how the Americans could be seen as the successors of the War.
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.
This is why the government have close links with business groups, like Shell, BP and Tesco. Wealthy groups can afford a lot of advertisements and media coverage, which both are extremely helpful in promoting a pressure group, as more people become aware of their presence. BT constantly run adverts on the TV because they can afford to do so, and BT are probably the most successful telecommunications company in the world. Another factor that contributes to a pressure groups success is size. This is because when a pressure group is larger in size it means it contains a large membership and usually more people will recognize the group.
On one hand it could be said that having an empire made Britain great because British values were spread.
