ECONOMY , has to do with how much money the country has. This lead to plenty of other things. They include, ...
WE WANT GOLD! WOO HOO!
MERCANTILISM and, (This is the countries trying to export as much as possible to get money that way)
TRIANGULAR TRADE . This is the first big globalization between the new world and the old world. This lead to even more like, ...
COLONIZATION , (The triangular trade showed people these lands and people decided to settle here. there were already some settlements here but this probably pushed some more people because they saw different products from the area)
MIDDLE PASSAGE and, (This was a shortcut of shorts that allowed Africa to go to the caribbean through the imaginary triangle path that was already used)
SLAVERY . (This is one of the main exports that came from the African area of the world. They were transported in packed ships across the ocean. Somewhere even sold from other tribes some of these slaves were prisoners of war.) So while some of these events look terrible when we look back in history, we know these things happened and the world as we know it would be very different without these things happening. Imagine the world without the Triangular trade.
