The Columbian Exchange
By: Keanu Ritter
The Columbian Exchange was the widespread trade of crops, population, and disease. The Columbian Exchange started in 1492 when the Americas were discovered by Christopher Columbus.
Corn, potato, tomato, squash, and sugar were all cash crops sent to the New World. Turkeys were the only livestock sent to the New World.
Economienda, forced labor of the natives, started in the New World in order to send cash crops back to the Old World.
Meanwhile in the "Mother Land" mercantilism, trade makes money and is caused by the collection of profits, is brought about.
The Columbian Exchange also affected population. Although the natives were dying because o the disease brought from the Old World, the world population grew.
