  • 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.
