because of the dependency on the product (doc. 5). Sugar also had a very addictive quality and the more it was consumed the more it was wanted which further drove the trade(doc 3). The consumer demand for sugar and the slave labor the sugar trade create a flourishing capital. The Caribbean islands were a great place for sugar to be produced because of the warm climates, rainfall, latitude, and soil composition (doc.
The sugar trade was driven by land and climate, consumer demand, and the economy. Land and climate was a major factor in driving the sugar trade. Included in Document 1 is a Colonial Map of the Caribbean. The map presents that most Caribbean land are colonized by the British, French, and Spanish. Referring the map to Document 2, explains that an ideal climate average for the growth of cane sugar is sixty-eight degrees Fahrenheit to ninety degrees Fahrenheit which slaves are forcefully working and growing sugar out in the heat.
That’s why Jamaica and the Barbados were huge in growing sugar. The sugar trade was motivated by land and climate, consumer demand and the economy. First of all, the sugar trade was impelled by the land and climate. I concur with author of (Doc. 2) because it states that sugar cane was grown with an abundance of rainfall, at least 80 to 90 inches per year.
This sail was square in shape and mounted so that they were able to pivot, which made seamen able to tack against the wind. The latten sail later on became the inspiration for the triangular sail which was more efficient and faster. Malay also contributed many sail techniques that improved water trade and naval militaries. Arabia had numerous contributions to southernization. They began the cultivation of sugar.
The needs of British manufacturers certainly did contribute to the expansion of the slave trade from 1760 – 1800 as they needed all sorts of materials for making what they did, However, there were other factors that contributed as well such as consumer demand, the profitability of the slave trade, the need for a labour force on the plantations and the development of the triangular trading system. Consumer demand was high during the slave trade from all types of industry for example; coal, metal, and ship building materials needed to make the ships that would trade and transport slaves were high on the demand list. It wasn’t just the industries demanding, it was the British public who now had a taste for the Caribbean goods such as sugar, rum, tobacco, coffee and cotton for clothes. The introduction of tobacco had high demand as people would become literally addicted to it. So this was also a key factor in the expansion of the slave trade.
1. Introduction The Global culture of coffee is rapidly increasing; for many people it has become a daily habit and nowadays coffee shops are a common social meeting ground. In view of the fact that coffee shops are seen at every half block in one’s neighborhood, it may not sound surprising that coffee has become the most valuable commodity in the world and the second largest traded commodity next to oil (Pendergrast, 1999). So with coffee being one of the world’s most traded market, it is significant for this report to focus on the impact of coffee production on local producers at specific region such as Rosário da Limeria. 2.
So when the United States was first colonized it the growing season and fertile land made the economy flourish. Tobacco farms and cotton helped establish and grow the American economy. As the economy grew the need for new land and more people increased thus expanding the United States and perpetuating its
The invention of the Cotton Gin by Eli Whitney revolutionized the economy of the plantation (Jones et al. 220). With increase demand of cotton, came the increase of production, which required larger fields for planting and demanded more slaves to work the plantation. The institution of slavery became an important economic element that the Southern states needed to protect.
The growth of population resulted from more reliable food supplies, thanks to the new crops that originated in the Americas and widespread resistance to disease. Better job opportunities and more dependable food supplies led people to marry at earlier ages and have more children. A high birthrate meant a large percentage of children within the general population.
Nicaragua has always been highlighted by the quality of its agricultural sector, as weather conditions and abundant water resources make the country ideal for producing a wide variety of crops instead. Thus, the cocoa industry of Nicaragua has established itself as the most dynamic in Central America, and also enjoys a favorable environment for the modernization and increased production and processing. Also, cocoa available in the country is the Trinitarian type, if properly fermented, is the preferred raw material for thin and dark chocolates. Annually 4,000 metric tons of cocoa from approximately 8,000 hectares are produced and exported primarily to Central America and Europe. However, the country has more 350,000 cocoa hectares suitable for growing, mainly located in the North Atlantic Autonomous Region and the South Atlantic Autonomous Region, according to a study by the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (MAG ) done in 2010.
