-Agricultural improvements

-Major population upheavals

-Millions of Native Americans died

-no natural immunities to Afro-Eurasian diseases like smallpox and measles

-whole island populations decimated, from 50%-80%


-During 1400s, Europeans developed deep-draft, round-hulled sailing ships for the Atlantic, could carry heavy armaments

-Improving compass, mapmaking, and other navigational devices

-Knowledge of explosives was adapted into gunnery, first guns and cannons

Impact of worlds colliding
Impact of Worlds Colliding

-More inequality

-different social hierarchies created in the New World

-development of labor systems

-Demographic changes

Development of labor systems throughout regions
Development of labor systems throughout regions

-encomiendas given to Spanish conquerors; Indians treated like slaves and exploited for labor

-when the encomiendas began to fail, the Spanish administration began to use the mita, or the mandatory public service that rose to prominence in the Inca empire.

-the haciendas begin to become more prominent in the economy

-slavery became a vital part of the global economy due to growing Indian resistance towards the Spaniards and the sugar and mining industries begin to rise

Development of labor systems throughout regions cont
Development of labor systems throughout regions cont.

-serfdom continues in Russia (until about the 20th century); agriculture is still prominent in the economy,as agriculture composes 95% of the economy after the Mongol occupation

-wage labor begins to rise in Europe after the decline of feudalism; the Plague affected the economy by lowering the amount of people who could work, so serfdom was in decline.

-the impact of these labor systems was the rise of labor specialization in the New World, the continuity of peasant revolts in Russia, the rise of the Atlantic Slave Trade, and the development of wage labor, which created a global economy that that was beginning to move toward industrialization and capitalism.
