  • ???? !!!!
  • By 1500 AD, western Europe had begun to develop fast, thanks to good farmland, a mild climate for farming and industries such as shipbuilding and textiles.
  • ...we'll give you some really nice beads...
  • If you give us pepper, and some of that wood...
  • oh, alright then...
  • Then the Industrial Revolution came along. It began around 1750 in Britain and spread to Europe. It led to a leap in wealth and development for several countries.
  • It's the only way to make sure we have enough raw materials... and people to sell stuff to! Anyway it's for their own good.
  • Europeans had already settled in North America by then So they started to develop industries too. And soon North America began to grow wealthy.
  • I actually don't know.
  • The Europeans are gone! What do we do now?
  • It began with friendly trading for things like gold, tobacco, timber, and spices. The Europeans gave goods in exchange. But as time went by they grew greedier, and...
  • Took over many of their trading partners by force, as colonies. They took their raw materials, and sold them finished goods - and that made many Europeans very rich! 
  • In time, the Europeans were forced out. They left behind them countries with very little industry, low levels of education and skill, and often a great deal of unrest.
