Hakluyt used the following arguments to convince people to  establish colonies; to expand trade opportunities, the journey there  is not too far nor difficult, the route there is not unclaimed territory,  the journey could be made at all times of the year, to expand  English culture, to gain from the abundance of natural resources  and keep up with other countries, English ships are strong enough  for the journey as well as removing any obstacles in its path, to  inherit new wealth the land has to offer, to spread the word of God,  to govern the natives better than the Spaniards have, and it serves  as a remedy for times of economic troubles. b.)
