MERCANTILISM
  • An economic system based on the belief that a country could only be rich if ________ continually _________into its economy and its government ___________.
  • Great Britain saw the colonies as a source of wealth. They wanted that wealth to flow back to Great Britain. It was always the colonists’ duty to ship most of the gold, silver, or other resources found in the colony back to Great Britain.
  • For about 300 years, most of the natural resources gathered in the Americas were sent to Europe.

review of southern colonies
Review of Southern Colonies
  • England saw the long growing season and rich, fertile land of the Southern Colonies and knew it would be a great spot to grow wheat and corn.
  • In order to meet Great Britain’s demand for raw materials, plantations grew.
  • A great amount of labor was needed to work on the plantations. At first Mexicans were used until later, when indentured servants were used because they did not have to be paid.
  • Consequently, everyone in the South owned a plantation and slaves.
