  2. Creation, Interaction and Expansion of Economic Systems • This theme includes: • Agricultural and pastoral production • Trade and commerce • Labor systems • Industrialization • Capitalism and Socialism

  3. Foundations Unit8000 BCE – 600 CE

  4. Neolithic Revolution • Traditional Economy • Hunting and gathering • Sedentary agriculture developed between 10,000 and 8,000 BCE • 1st developed in southwestern Asia • Earliest method was slash-and-burn agriculture • Subsistence agriculture • Herding animals (pastoralism) Slash-and-burn agriculture in northeast India

  5. Development of Agriculture

  6. Economic Regions

  7. Early Village Economy • Farming led to the rise of permanent villages • Jericho • Village life led to specialized labor • Development of early industry • Pottery, metallurgy, and textiles

  8. Ancient Civilizations • Mesopotamia, Egypt, & Indus River Valley • Irrigation led to improved agriculture • Development of cities contributed to rise of trade • China • Regular rains & fertile soil minimized irrigation • Olmec • Develop in rainforest; water control systems • Chavin • Develop in mountains; complex irrigation

  9. Nile-Indus Corridor

  10. Pre-classical labor systems • Slavery • Existed in all early civilizations but was relatively unimportant • Most slaves gained through military conquest • Egypt • Used corvée labor to build pyramids & temples • Peasants were bound to the land • Men were organized into labor gangs of 50-100

  11. Pre-classical labor systems • Mesopotamia • Large number of slaves due to militaristic nature of society • Peasants lost their freedom over time • Rise of debt slavery • China • Zhou dynasty peasants paid a percentage of their crops to aristocrats in exchange for protection • Manorial system

  12. Classical Civilizations • Han China • Monopolized production of iron, salt, and liquor • Rise of the Silk Road • Mauryan India • Ashoka built irrigation systems and roads to promote trade • Mayans • Terrace farming improved production of cotton, maize, and cacao

  13. Classical Civilizations • Ancient Greece • Cities, such as Athens, become centers of trade • Economy depended heavily on slavery • Rome • Latifundia – large landed estates focused on commercial agriculture (olive oil, wine, wheat) • North Africa was the major grain producing region • Depended on slave labor • Roman roads promoted trade and linked empire to Silk Road

  14. Classical era labor systems • China • Free peasants were the backbone of the labor force • Peasants ranked just below bureaucrats but above artisans and merchants • Qin Shi Huangdi ended the manorial system • “Recruited” labor to build the Great Wall • Silk weaving supplemented farm income • “Men as tiller, woman as weaver” • During the Han dynasty, slaves made up less than 1% of the total population

  15. Classical era labor systems • Greece & Rome • Slaves never constituted more than 50% of the population • Slaves worked as domestic servants, miners, and farmers • In Greece, slaves could serve as tutors • In Rome, development of commercial agriculture led to the rise of slavery • Rome also used slaves as gladiators and chariot racers

  16. Classical era labor systems • India • Caste system was based largely on job classification • Farmers did not rank high in prestige • Merchants had a higher social standing than they did in China or the Mediterranean • Slaves played almost no role in the economy • Sudras (lowest caste) and untouchables took the place of slaves

  17. Post-Classical Unit600 – 1450

  18. Creation, Interaction and Expansion of Economic Systems • This theme includes: • Agricultural and pastoral production • Trade and commerce • Labor systems • Industrialization • Capitalism and Socialism

  19. Cotton The Silk Roads

  20. Arabs • Did not rely heavily upon agriculture • Abbasid sakk (checks) encouraged trade • Urbanization: Baghdad • Dar al-Islam facilitated expansion of trade • Islamic law protected merchants • Revival of the Silk Road • Growth of Indian Ocean trade • Dhows increase the volume of maritime trade
