❖ How do natural and human landscapes and resources affect the development of empires?
-European powers were the ones able to conquer other countries, the reason for this is that they were much more industrialized.
- Raw material are obtained from the places of expansion. This raw materials are later manufactured to create profit. If these developed countries didn't have the resources, non profit would be made. -Once you have the product, you have to sell them to someone, by having more territory, more sellers are available, therefore more profit would be created.
-People are being exploited, ruled and forced to be a part of a new empire where they might have to adapt to a new culture and society. Consequences for this are extremely bad.
