I know, since England believes in mercantilism, our economy should skyrocket.
I am so happy our king believes in expeditions, for now we can be rich! Luckily Britain follows the concept of mercantilism which is that sending out expeditions will make you profit and that you want to be the most wealthy country around. Mercantilism is going to make us rich.
I heard that Spain and France also believe in Mercantilism and our trying to steal our resources.
Hey look! I can see Spanish and French ships. They must also follow mercantilism and want to get the raw materials to trade to Africa and Europe.
Get away from our resources, we want to gather the timber and cotton!
We will get our fare share of money and we won’t have to do any work because we will have slaves to do it for free
I heard that we will profit by trading in the triangle trade to Africa and Europe. We will give Europe raw materials such as cotton and timber, as well as alcohol to Africa. Europe will give us material goods such us furniture and clothing and Africa will give us slaves to do the work for us free of charge. Europe will give Africa beer and furniture. Africa will give Europe iron and gold.
