NATS 1840 Lecture 7 – Specialization of Production: Technology Maximizes Resource Extraction Three things that happen with everything: resource extraction, energy consumption like horse power or coal burning to produce anything…, waste production like pollution or actual stuff when we throw it away when we produce things. In 19 century, population was growing, and their life span was increasing as well. So more presuure on environment. These led to land scarcity. More population, need more food, run out of land. So there was land pressure. There was growing global trade and manufacturing more stuff, so resourse extraction will increases as well. Land scarcity (lots of people need to grow food thus acquire land ), growing global trade ( make more stuff ), rapidly growing manufacturing industries 19 th century→ industrialized agriculture feed greater populations by using technology for food, also medicine use→ immunization→ sanitary issues Large scale resource extraction Large variety of resources that were extracted at this period: food (sugar, fish), non-food animal products (e.g. furs), minerals (e.g. gold and silver), plant materials (trees) All extracted for the home country (extracted from colonies). So people came to canada to extract resources. Those natural resoursec could be dvery cheaply sent it by cheaps to other countries and be manufactured it shows that transportation was pretty cheap.

minimal processing (e.g. drying and salting fish), greater processing - as basis for manufacturing (e.g. iron for tools) competitive advantage was one way a country would limit amount of resources it can extract increased Raw materials for manufacturing, so production levels increased, dependence on natural resources, economic growth and competitiveness trees were natural resources, so they were being cut more. For economy to work, there is a need for resource extraction. If no resource extraction, so people have nothing to buy. So resource extraction is necessary but not sufficient When European came to Canada they though that Canada had unexustable resources. Englans is really smaller than Canada. So for them, the resourses in Canada was unfinishable. They did not think that they were damaging the environment, they did not think in the same way. Like when

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
