Chapter 27: Nation Building in the Americas and Australia
1770 to 1914

38: Mon, Jan 28, 2019

Please read the chapter and take the quiz by midnight on Sun, Jan 27, 2019.
Please also post in the forum for the day a short essay in response to this question:

The period we are looking at sees a radical change in what constitutes resources for home countries and their former colonies.

The European powers viewed their colonies as the source of raw materials and as a willing — or unwilling — customer base for their own manufactured goods. How do their former colonies continue to be resources for European powers and the rest of the world? How do the European nations function as a resource for their former colonies?

Australia, as the odd-continent-out, has to find its own way of becoming economically important to sources of investment in Europe. How does it address this problem to create a new resource?

Gold is a unique resource that plays a significant part in the development of some countries and the decline of others. How do gold rushes affect the US, Canada, and Australia?
