the goods with profit Britain saw too great to allow them to be sold other places). Britain's actions show that the British felt America was too good to let go, but small enough to be controlled. While this was good for the shipbuilders and tobacco farmers who had guaranteed sales, it was not good for America. The colonial economy and industry was greatly limited. This did not go unnoticed by the American colonists, so they turned, in a way, to themselves (but trade connections with Europe
To what extent was Italy politically and economically united, 1896-1914? Despite official unification in 1870, Italy still remained somewhat divided, especially so under the Liberal government, 1896-1914. Attempted reforms to ease political and economic divisions had limited success, such as the voting reform of 1912 to introduce universal male suffrage (which increased the popularity of socialism) and modernisation in industries such as steel and hydroelectricity (which consequently widened the North/South divide). Italy still remained partially divided, which prevented total unification, both politically and economically. Firstly, Italy was only partially politically united, namely due to a number of liberal policies.
There is no denying that the power that Austrian Empire held from 1820 and 1848 was influential and was one of the reasons the Italian revolutionaries failed. This is why some argue that the main reason of the failed attempt to unite Italy was the brute force of the Austrian military and navy. However, many argue that this was merely one factor of many. Some argue that the reason that Italy’s revolutionaries failed was due to the geographical fragmentation of Italy and the fact that this consequently leads to parochialism within these individual sectors. However, the argument that carries the greatest weight is that the individuals who led these revolts and were at the forefront of the revolutionary movements were not united themselves in how they wanted Italy to unite.
This profit margin made the risk worth taking for many, resulting in the government losing money due to be not paying duty tax. Pitt saw this problem and decided to reduce the level of duty tax of these products, in the Commutation Act of 1784. In addition, he also amended the Hovering Act of 1780, meaning that officials could now search ships, therefore making smuggling a lot more difficult. Furthermore, to encourage legitimate trade, Pitt introduced ‘Bonded Warehouses’ which allowed legitimate traders to store their goods in these warehouses tax-free as long as they were planning to export these to another country. Although the problem of smuggling had to be overcome, exportation in Britain was booming.

Each cause brought about an effect by the other. Individuals and groups changed the course of history. The triggers of the American Revolution were primarily economic in nature in that while the British gave allowed more freedom to its colonies that the rest of the European colonial powers, they still enacted laws that favored the business fraternity in Great Britain: a situation that did not augur very well with the members of the thirteen British colonies of North America. Thus, the discontent with disparate treatment of the thirteen colonies by the Great Britain yielded to the quest for independence, which was born out of the protracted fight for independence in what is called the American Revolution. References Kelly, M. (2011).
The colonies were in a predicament where they wanted to control their own economic issues but could not because of the strict British control. The British enacted a policy of salutary neglect that provided a sense of pity for the colonies. The British later merged their mercantilist economy into the Triangular trade. Explain what the Triangular trade was. This trade route not only helped the colonial

Prohibition to prohibit the sale of alcohol, intended to stabilize society but created conflicts of crime and corruption.

The only problem with this idea is that other countries began to feel threatened not only by America but by other countries also. It was not a complete shock when Spain and America went to war. Since the idea of imperialism was being tossed around by countries, Spain had control over Cuba and other countries, the goods that were being exported from these countries to America and surrounding areas were being threatened to be cut off. American ended up going to war with Spain to prevent these things from happening. Just think if Spain still had control over Cuba and Hawaii, we would have to spend more money as a country to import sugar and pineapples.
Liberal Italy faced many problems in this period if it was from corruption in the government or catholic hostility. This showed that the government ( king ) was weak as political and religious opponents were ankle to challenge. The king had most of the power and was able to pass whatever law he wanted no matter how ridicules it was, Italy AT this time was meant to be liberated but with a king being able to do what he wanted it sounds very much like a dictatorship. The government also had substantial amounts of power but the problem was that they were elected by the king. This mean that the government mainly consisted of people with similar ideology as the king.
