History February 14, 2007 Agricultural goods do not have taxes on them but sugar is different, because the demand is so high. 1887, second treaty of reciprocity. There’s also white business men in Hawaii drawing new constitution and force king so sign it. It is referred to as the Beignet government. In 1890, 90% of the Hawaiian economy is from sugar canes. 99% of exports was sugar to the US. The US plays with the sugar market and the congress makes sugar coming into US tax free. Louisiana farmers are mad about this and are given 2 cent bonus on every pound of sugar from congress. The market then collapses. Hawaiian government agrees that they need to get rid of these foreign forces. Queen Lil comes to power in Hawaii afterwards trying to stop this madness from the US government. The senate denies that anything happened. The US has taken over the government and economy of Hawaii and changes its image. New government in Hawaii is not ruled by Queen Lil but by Sanford Dull. The US is so desperate to increase its empire.

    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.
