Why should we rush, we do not get any finished goods in return
We have to get these raw materials to England
Hey! We should put a duty on the raw materials so that we get more in return from England
That's actually a really good idea, lets do it
Man, you read my mind
We should start trading with Africa, maybe they have goods that are useful for us
This image shows how the imports from the colonies were more valuable to England, and what the colonies get in return are less valuable
Hey did you hear about Great Britain's policy?
No, what's that
The travelers decide to put a duty on the raw materials that they are bringing to England so that they can have a more equal trade.
We have no say in what is happening, but we think it's wrong.
Do you know what is going on with the middle passage?
This is showing how there was a trade between the Americas,Europe, and Africa. The characters have come up with the idea of trading with Africa since they were already trading with Europe
Yeah, we really need those so that would be a good idea.
This is showing the man explaining to the travelers that Great Britain came up with a policy that Great Britain cannot interfere with American colonies' politics and economy as long as the colonies ignore served British economic interests.
The policy is that Great Britain can not bother American colonies' politics.
Great Britain's what?
The man asked about the middle passage and the travelers think that people should not be forced to leave their country and be slaves in the Americas.
Yeah, people shouldn't be forced to leave their home and go somewhere they don't want to
The traveler comes up with an idea to trade other countries for staple crops since they are in high demand.
We should try to start trading other countries for staple crops.
