Here you go
Can I please have a piece of bread!
We are here to entertain you!
Roman Aqueducts kept the citizens of Rome happy and healthy by replacing the bad water and waste and filtering it for people to drink and for farming.
No-One was Working
Regularly in Rome the government would give male citizens free bread and wheat. This kept poor people from going hungry. They provided this by charging the farmers to give up their surplus, tax.
Farmers in Provinces were Taxed
we are getting taxed!!!!
Big sums of money were given by the emperors to provide games and entertainment in the giant Circus Maximus arena.
Farmers Not Working Hard
If we cant sell our own surplus there is NO reason to grow it!!!
Since the Colosseum and Circus Maximus became so popular everyone stopped working to go there, because of this no one was working.
Look how many people are waiting to get into Circus Maximus!
As a tax the government instructed all the farmers to give up their surplus to give to the poor. This means the farmers cannot make money off of selling their surplus.
The farmers think that since they cant keep their surplus there is no need to grow it. The farmers stop trying as hard.
