In the beginning, the pay that was given to workers that worked on land was extremely low, and the cost to buy goods was off the charts. However, those that were in charge of the land had increasingly stronger buy- ing powers. But irresponsibility and corruption that surrounded the land owners stunted growth in Latin America in the beginning. Politics were also going haywire at the time Latin America was under its developmental phase. The turning point to this lack of development was when the British and Americans supported Latin American trade. From solely relying on exports to being able to rely on advanced technology such as railways and steam-powered shipping boats, the economic activity in Latin America soared. Unfortunately, the nations that picked up the profits the most were the foreigners, and Latin Americans continued to dig deeper into debt. Then, the United States saw the operations in Latin America as a major step to improving the conditions of their own country. Following the declaration of independence in Cuba, businesses ran by the United States settled on this island in the Caribbean. During the Cuban war, the Span- ish and the Americans had to fight for fair treatment and economic conditions. This ultimately led to Cuba declaring independence in 1901, as well as the advent of linking the Atlantic to the Pacific for shipping and commerce. Finally, the United States took advantage of the Panama Canal, earning profit from ships that travelled through. In the rest of the world, colonialism paved the way to other economic and cultural developments. In India, colonialism led to the British taking control of a large section of the country. This great event was directly after when the Mughal empire inhabited and colonialized the nation. With the divisions created by the empire, the British was able to expand into individual states with ease throughout the 18th century. And this was all achieved with just a few leaders and an advanced degree of technol- ogy compared to the Mughal empire in a very short time period. Both of these cases of colonialism opened the doors to modern societies and networks of regulations.

    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.
