Wars of Religion The Age of Exploration established permanent links between the "Old World" and the "New World," permanently altering the course of history. The Age of Exploration Mercantilism was the economic theory that wealth was finite, so each nation must acquire as much as possible and achieve a favorable trade balance. Mercantilism was partially a result of the Little Ice Age shifting the economy away from agriculture. Mercantilism also encouraged nations to establish colonies for resources and a market for goods.
