1. Early humans were pastdental wanderers until they settled down and also developedfarming, which has been the base of economic situation ever since.

You are watching: Creation expansion and interaction of economic systems

2. Trade and commerce throughout background was focused approximately the four main trade routes: The Silk Roadway, Trans-Saharan, Mediterranean, and also the Indian Ocean.

3. Spread of technology spurs inter-neighborhood interactivity and also interaction, and also advances in technology increase manufacturing and facilitate profession.

4. In financial systems, peasants develop food and also develop excess, and also as soon as excess is current, specialization occurs. Artisans develop deluxe items, and vendors profession these commodities to carry items to the elites. Without a surplus, financial (commercial) advance is near impossible.

EX: Middle ages Europe

5. Exploration in the Early Modern Period fueled the principle of capitalism, and also promoted swarms which sustained and also gave riches to home countries.

Unit 1:

Paleolithic Period:Period of foragers.

Hunting and gathering societies: Only pursued and gathered for food. No source of economic climate.


Neolithic Revolution: Agrisociety developed new communities.Move towards domestication of plants, and also pets. Then civilization discovered that they might usage pets for even more than farming (second commodities revolution), which caused human being to make and trade even more assets with other civilizations and also the nomadic people in the area, and also additionally produced a brand-new lifemethod, pastoralism.

Bronze Age: Bronze devices were produced. CONSEQUENCE: Tools made farming less complicated, so human being were able to specialize in various other work, which permitted people to trade more.

Invented the wheel

CONSEQUENCE: Led to many kind of new creations that assisted in farming, which aided facilitate profession. For example the plow made farming much faster, so people might develop even more.

Silver was the develop of money.

Traded with Egypt and the Indus River Valley.

Teotihuacan/Maya: Co-exsited together

Teotihuacan: Thriving market center


Grew maize, cotton, and cocoa

Fell due to climate readjust.

Drained swamps, terraced hillsides, flattened ridge tops, created water management mechanism.

CONSEQUENCE: Flourimelted agriculture, which caused a promptly growing populace (which can not be sustained once climate readjust hit).


Traded with central and also eastern Asia, and the Mediterranean

Mecca and also Medina on the Red Sea.

Bedouins-Nomadic herders on the ArabianPeninsula. Based on camel and goat herding. Trade cities in south ruined by Bedouins, brand-new cities create on the north shore on the Red Sea.MeccaandMedina- 2 trade cities established by the Umayyad clan of the Bedouins. Th cities were close to oasis" and also had actually sedentary agriculture. They affix the Arab Peninsula to thetranscontinentaltrade paths from theMediterranean. Both hadlong-distance camel caravan profession, and profession via Bedouins, that protect profession routes. TheKa"ba(sacred mosque) in Capital brings wealth-bearing pilgrims.CAUSE/CONSEQUENCEDue to the Ka"ba"s spiritual worth and also mandatory clan truce, groups of human being banded together and also sellers flocked to the trade cities, resulting in profession increase and also a vendor elite, as viewed inbazaars.



The degree of the Islamic Empire under the Umayyad Caliphate

Umayyad Caliphate-The Umayyad Dynasty goes from650-750 CE.

They were even more concentrated on armed forces growth than trade systems.Expanded the Islamic Caliphate into Spain, North Africa, and the Sassanid EmpireConnect toMediterranean, Trans-SaharanandSilk Roadprofession paths.CHANGE: Silk road have the right to now be crossed all at once (this is a change better attributed to the Abbasid period), not just in short trips between on-road profession cities.WHY? New innovation - camels, caravanserai.Sets up trade territory for Abbasid Caliphate.Capital at formerly Byzantine city -Damascus.


The Abbasid caliphate had actually extensive profession routes.

Abbasid Caliphate-The Abbasid Dynasty ruled from750 - 1258 CE.

Take over area of Umayyad conquests.Connected toSilk Roadway, Mediterranean, Indian Ocean,andTrans-Saharantrade courses. (Revive Afro-Eurasian trade)Trade and also commercial based empire, not conquest.Move capital: Trading facility ofBaghdadin Iraq.Tax system - heavier on Non- Muslims (Malawis)Merchant elite course.Wazirs build infrastructure to collecttribute.

Trade (CAUSE):Elites desire international of high-end products, and merchants look for to make a profit by bringing items to markets.

Reinvest earnings right into profession ventures = even more economic profit.

As Caliphs, such as Harun al-Rashid, the fourth caliph, started to live moreluxuriouslifelayouts, in encouraged even more trade and also purchase of high-end products.

Government-runartisan workshopsto produce products to profession (deluxe + necessities)Furniture, carpets, glassware, jewelry, tapestries)Artisans develop organizations equivalent toguilds.Unskilled labor (farming, serving elites) left toservants.Ayanlandlord elites.

Facilitation of Trade:

DhowsArab sailing vessels with lateenager sails and also shallow hulls (quick transport). Carry great for profession in Indian Ocean,Mediterranean Sea, Red Sea, Persian Gulf, etc.Travel via and also against the seasonal winds, which enabled traders to leave and also return year round.Lateen Sails- Allow ships to travel quick, and upwind.Scientific Advances (Compass, astrolabe) - Help navigation.Camels- "Super" or Hybrid camels for overland also profession - sturdier, worecamel saddles.Caravanserai- Government sponsored rest stops along trade courses (Shelter, food)Joint profession GroupsMuslims, Christians, and also Jews band also together in trade teams.Each had various sabbath = Trade industries all days of the week.


Merchants of different

faiths band also together.

The Muslim Agricultural Revolution: Begins c.750 CE, in the time of Abbasid Caliphate, spcheck out of plants and also technology.

Crops come west from IndiaFood plants and Industrial plants.Crops that flourish in better heat.Brneed to Africa - Yield more product for a longer duration of the year.(Sugarcane, Rice, Spinach, Artichokes, Eggplants, Oarrays, Lemons, Limes, Bananas, Mangos, Coconuts, Cotton, Indigo, Henna)Technology SpreadsQanats- Underground watering canals from Persia.Allow plants to flourish in more warm (water can not evapoprice as a lot in underground canals).


Qanats came from Persia throughout the Muslim Agrisocial Rdevelopment.

CONSEQUENCE: More differed diet in West --> Healthier

More food

Surplus = Population Growth + Specialization = Cities = Agriculture

Increase manufacturing of food, and cotton and dyes for trade.

Sharefarming approaches = Imverified methods + Increased manufacturing.

The Spreview of Trade with Islam: As Islam Spreads, so do trade relations.

- Spreview to North Africa through trade andAlmoravids.

- Spreview to sub-Saharan Africa via profession.

- Spreview to Southeastern Asia through trade &Sufi Mystics

CONSEQUENCE:The spreview of Islam to Southeastern Asia included more human being todar al-Islam, the civilization of Islamic human being. This addition consisted of new sellers and also Islamic profession centers, and also therefore increased profit.

CONSEQUENCE:Decline in profit of a key commodity.

Economy based on farming.Merchants create form little groups or partnerships of trade.Commercial cities thrive, begin to resemble North Africa.Expansion of Mali Empire = Greater defense for merchants = Increased trade and also profits.80% of people farm (rice, millet, sorghums, wheat, fruits and also vegetables)Feed human being, supply sellers.
