This brought great debt on the nation’s government. The government had to ask for money from the state legislatures, and were denied more than accepted for more money. The failure of a supreme authority to regulate interstate commerce became a problem because, although Congress was allowed with the sole authority to negotiate foreign treaties, it did not have the power to control trade between individual states and foreign countries The problem with interstate commerce was states would placed tariffs on each other's goods which combined with currency problems led to a decline of interstate commerce. There were no set rules on each state trading with each. Soon after the articles, people would stop trading interstate.
No one was able to mediate this disagreement. The Articles failure became evident when congressmen were unable to provide funding for their state. After we had just fought a war on taxes, each individual state needed to find a way to receive support from their citizens. Even if congress instituted taxes, many citizens refused to pay any kind of money to the state government because there was no national government to enforce that they were required to. Congress could not forcibly push the need for money on their people, so the population of that state was able to withhold money and force the congress to follow their demands.
This law angered the colonists because this impeded them from obtaining new, cheap land. The Proclamation Act was the first act in which Parliament, and the King imposed on the colonies after the prolonged period of salutary neglect. The colonies were affected them because they were not used to the total control/rule of Britain exercised over them. The Navigation Laws of 1650 were now being enforced in the colonies which only allowed commerce through Britain, and controlled items of trade. Restrictions on what colonist manufactured angered the merchants because they were not allowed to produce certain items in the colonies, just as they were prohibited from distributing paper currency, and the ability of having any legislation passed in the assemblies nullified.
This basic form of opposition was never truly effective as their actions were simply put down by the government partly due to their failure to unite and lack of ideology and political demands. This was, however, not the only internal opposition to Tsar Alexander II with the “Going to the People” movement emerging in 1874. Here young members of the Russia intelligentsia went to the peasants breaching to them about their ideas about how life should be lived. This proved unsuccessful, they failed to appeal to the peasantry and the regime managed to arrest members showing them to be ineffective at this point. However, the populist movement developed from here, eventually splitting into two groups; the Black Partition and the People’s Will.
Under the Articles of Confederation its powers included conducting foreign relations, settling disputes between states, controlling market values, regulating trade and so on. It purposely did not give the national government all the power in fear of tyranny like in Britain. Economically and Socially, although the United States desired an effective government, they comprised an ineffective government because there was no president, the U.S. wasn’t able to pass taxes and laws, it had no army to protest the nation, it had a weak government, and it had no courts to settle problems between states. So in the end, the Articles of Confederation proved to be both inadequate in economic conditions, foreign relations and other aspects. Thus, these political, economic and social factors all contributed to the reasons why the Articles of Confederation couldn’t provide an effective form of government.
“From 1781 to 1789 the Articles of Confederation provided the United States with an effective government” Using the documents and your knowledge of the period, evaluate this statement. From 1781 to 1789 the Articles of Confederation failed to provide the United States with an effective government. Proper governments should have the ability to have a certain amount of power over its people, under the Articles; the government could not regulate trade, tax or enforce most laws on its people. The states were given the task that the national government should have been given. Among its many weaknesses were the single branch of government, unicameral, and the inability of congress to tax or declare war.
The colonists started to create a paper money system to help the economy, but Britain outlawed this. This hurt the economy in the Colonies and led to many protests. Because of these acts, the colonists started to protest by refusing to import British goods, which hurt the British economy. 1765—The Quartering Act: The Quartering Act required the colonies to provide food, supplies and shelter to British troops. The British thought
The North and South of Vietnam were united in 1975, only to enter a political conflict. There were major problems with the government and the running of the country. The North Vietnamese communists wanted to rule the country their way, with collective farming and nationalised industries. Yet these methods were opposed by the South. They were also impossible due to the contaminated land.
Because he did this without parliaments approval parliament got angry. In the beginning the people used to pay at least 97.6% of ship money but by the time it was 1639 no one really cared and only 20% paid. A man called John Hampden stood up to the king and refused to pay ship money, Hampden was put on a trial and found guilty. But everyone else thought he was a hero. In 1637 the Scottish were told by Charles they had to use a new prayer book for their church but the Scottish didn't want to and got angry so they decided to rebel against him.
First of all, the lack of knowledge from the Cherokee people to cultivate their land and find gold frustrated the economic growth of the United States. Secondly, the absence of adequate education and their dislike to become part of the American society from most of the Cherokee population, obstructed the social progress of United States. Finally, Andrew Jackson’s position against the Cherokee nation led to a consistent political and social pressure from states that surrounded the land. In order to avoid any big scale conflicts, the Cherokees understood that they needed to give up their homeland. The Americans considered that the Cherokee community never took advantage of the territory they had.
