Interest in colonization of America was a very popular topic during the 16th and 17th century. Among the biggest nations who wanted to conquer this challenge and establish colonies in the New World were: Spain, France, Netherlands, and of course England. England won the struggle because they had everything they needed to conquer the New World. They had a strong strategy for colonizing, strong leaders like John Smith, and the support of investors. * England had a strong strategy for colonizing.
Explain the term ‘globalisation’ and the role that multinational companies play in the development of globalisation. Globalisation is the process by which the world is becoming increasingly interconnected as a result of massively increased trade and cultural exchange. Globalisation has increased the production of goods and services and has therefore lead to increased trade between countries. This trade encourages countries to work together and removes trade barriers such as quotas and tariffs. This increased openess allows countries to specialise in producing goods which they have a comparitve advantage in (this means they can produce goods at lower unit costs) A multinational Company is a corporation that has its facilities and other assets in at least one country other than its home country.
These events caused what appears to be a strengthened Anglo-American relationship, and made it appear as ‘peaceful and harmonious’ however, there are other factors which must be considered by historians in order to solve this question. Speaking in terms of economics, it is likely that the relationship between the colonies and the mother country can be described as ‘peaceful and harmonious.’ Leading up to 1763, Britain had started to fully accelerate in the industrial revolution. This of course meant that Britain needed to Import lots of raw materials, and export a high quantity of manufactured goods. This was good for the American colonies, as it had a huge amount of raw material, and needed more manufactured goods, almost creating a perfect trade scenario between it and the mother country. In addition to this, the idea of mercantilism meant that American trade was protected by Britain, and this was advantageous as Britain was one of the strongest economic powers in the world at the time.
The reform of finance and administration was the most important factor for Pitt’s domination of politics 1783-93 how far do you agree? On one had there is a strong suggestion that Pitts earlier political domination was made entirely by his skill as an administrator and financing his government. But the political situation at the time meant that there were many disadvantages facing him from very early on, hence the nickname the “mince pie” administration. There were many ways in which Pitt conquered over such problems like the Whigs and support within the Commons and the way he improved it, but what is the most important factor in his domination. Pitt from early on was a highly successful at implicating financial and administrative policies
America Wins Their Independence England may have had an alarming amount of tangible and intimidating advantages, but in the end it was America’s intangible advantages that carried the colonists to their victory of the American Revolution. Looking at England’s advantages on paper; a superior Navy and a mass amount of experienced and well trained solders, it seems impossible for them to lose. However, America held the advantages of foreign allies and officers, the fact that they were fighting for their homeland and their undying persistence. It was, consequently, these advantages that won them the war. During wars, armies use the opposing sides’ disadvantages to work in their favor.
Imperialism can also be known as colonialism. Basically all imperialism is, is the growing and expanding of a nation through gaining colonies and territories that will be able to help the country by providing not only the land, labor, and raw materials, but also by providing possible sea ports in a time of war or conflict, and gaining trading routes that help to provide easy transport of goods and materials by avoiding countries or peoples that may cause trouble for the traders travelling through(1). There were many reasons why a nation would become imperialistic. Economics played a very large role in a countries decision to become imperialistic. Many times imperialism occurred in a nation shortly after it had begun to
1. What developments in the classical era helped reduce the risks inherent in long-distance trade? Construction of roads and bridges Expansion of empires closer borders, built in the classical era. They undertook these expensive projects primarily for military and administrative reasons, but roads also had the effect of encouraging trade within individual societies built large imperial states that sometimes expanded to the point that they bordered on one another. 2.
Imperialism’s Effectiveness In the mid 1800s, powerful Western nations discovered a new way to gain power: imperialism. Through new imperialism, European powerhouses could seek riches and spread their ideologies to solidify their standing as a world power, and to increase their influence around the world. In spreading their Western ways, they also significantly impacted the development and evolution of far Eastern countries. The spread of imperialism in the Eastern world in the early 1900s resulted in economic gains and the spread of education, among other positive outcomes; however, the negative impacts of imperialism, such as stratification by class and race, outweighed the sum of benefical results. Through imperialism, India and Japan were forced to Westernize.
The USA started exporting and importing goods with other countries. So, to keep up with demand, we had to produce more, which led to factories and labor unions. Also, the Railway Act that President Lincoln signed helped spur the Industrial Revolution
This meant that the fact railways were built news and especially political news got around to people faster which meant people were up to date on the news of politics. Also the other Social factor includes education therefore they are more politically aware and also more people could read and write. These played an important part in the growth of democracy in Britain by 1900. A final Social factor that increased the growth of democracy in Britain by 1900 was the Trade Unions who tried to and get better working conditions by claiming the vote and trying to get freedom of speech to make everyone equal. This then meant better employment and better work.
