Great idea! Why don't we force them to trade with ONLY us and no other countries
It's those stupid taxes the British put on us! Those scoundrels think they can just slap all these stupid rules on us without even granting us any representation. Maybe we should revolt sometime later...
Your majesty, we have all these colonies across the world. Don't you think we could make some easy money?
Nope not anymore. We're headed straight to Britain. Trading with anyone else is now illegal. There's also a tax for your sugar now. Britain is implementing Mercantilism were trade is tightly controlled.
Alright, I finished loading the ship with sugar. We're going to France correct?
Well too bad. You're only allowed purchase from Britain too
But Britain doesn't even pay me as much as France for sugar. What's with all these new rules and taxes
I've sold all my crops but I still can't afford my rent
That's great! Why don't we expand the navy so that we can conquer even more colonies!
