Mandamus - ∙ Mandamus is a right of authority by a supreme court over a lower court.  In the United States, such a right was initially established by the Judiciary Act of 1789,  but later repealed by Chief Justice John Marshall in the  Marbury v. Madison  decision of  1803.  Massachusetts Bay Company - ∙ The Massachusetts Bay Company was a mercantile  enterprise chartered by a group of English entrepreneurs in 1629 to establish a firmer  second foothold along the Atlantic seaboard, in competition with the existing enterprise  in Virginia.  Mercantile System - ∙ The mercantile system is an arrangement by which an imperial  power strips raw materials and profits from a colony, providing manufactured goods for  sale in return. Thus, a system of dependency and exploitation is developed, fueling  globalization through industrialization. Far from merely a seventeenth-century

    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.
