Transcript of Qing Dynasty

BY GABBY WONG QING DYNASTY What proof is there that the ideas practiced by the dynasty affected the economic system?
-The ideas practiced by the dynasty affecting the economic system is shown through the proof of how the dynasty would not trade outside of China and tried to limit their trading mobility. 1) The main idea was Qing China was a large continental market with no obstacles to the movement of goods across provincial boundaries. The Chinese system of rule relied on a strong central government headed by an emperor, who, with his many relatives, constituted a ruling family and lineage
2) Some of jobs that people held were based on the status they were born into; called a hereditary status. This included trying to follow what their fathers did. On the other hand, most people had some relationship to farming or to something that was a byproduct of farming.
3)Some of the things that the people of the Qing Dynasty bought and sold are rice, metals, farming produce and crops, medicinal herbs, and cotton.
4) Things that were traded in China included medicinal herbs from the mountains in West China, cotton from North China, and rice in large bulks. They traded among the South China Sea.
5)The new technology that was developed included using the bimetallic currencies. This meant they used copper and silver in circulation. Economics 1 economics 2. How did the ideas the dynasty had affect peoples' jobs and economic status at the different levels of society?
- Different social classes created an unequal distribution of money, but did not restrain the people from gaining the occupations they wanted. 1) had many jobs yet very few social classes.
2) Social classes included the emperor, government officials, aristocrats, and the common people.
3) The different levels of society have different amounts of money. The emperor had most of the wealth, the government officials were well paid, the aristocrats were treated fairly well, and the commoners were at the bottom where they had the least money.
4) The type of social class that people were in certainly did not determine what kind of job you had, with the exceptions of the emperor. The people could take certain exams that made them government officials. Economics 2 politics What proof is there that the ideas practiced by the dynasty affected the political system?
-however the emperor acted, the people would follow and react based on his actions. Also, government officials made rules and regulations that affected the way the people lived. 1.The Chinese system of rule relied on a strong central government headed by an emperor, with his many relatives, creating a ruling family and lineage. Also called imperial rule. It the emperor was not following the rules of being an emperor, he would have the “Mandate of Heaven” taken away from him. During this dynasty, there were two main emperors; Kangxi and Qianlong.
2.There were several benefits of having imperial rule. One of the benefits only protrude if the emperor was a caring and altruistic one. This benefit was that many people would worship the emperor and the emperor would reciprocate the kindness. The government helped the people only if the emperor was a caring one. If he was a caring one, then they would have a flourishing
3.The emperors had power, but it was government officials who really made the rules and regulations Politics 1 Explain whether or not the dynasty had any influence outside China and whether or not they expanded or unified China.
- The dynasty had a lot of influence outside of China by extending its political control over some of the smaller states in Southeast Asia and Korea. They also had impact on others by trading and exchanging many valuables. The political ideas affected people in the different social classes because whatever the emperor stated or the government officials did, the people under their rule would have to follow their rules.
The social classes include the emperor, government officials, aristocrats, and common people. The Emperor was the one to choose the religion, expand land, and generally create peace within the kingdom. Government officials were regular people who took special examinations in order to achieve their class; they usually created laws and regulations. The aristocrats were the wealthier side of the kingdom that were born rich; usually having more money than commoners. The commoners were the majority of the empire.
The different social classes participated in the government by each individually contributing. Although the emperor and government officials were accepted superior, the commoners were thought as elite and had more power than the born wealthy aristocrats.
They viewed the people outside of China as good trading partners. They did view themselves as superior though. Politics 2 SOCIAL How did the economic situation or decisions made by the government affect the different social classes?
-the situation of having commoners the vast majority helped them by giving them the say, while also having the emperors and government officials rule peacefully above them. 1.The levels of society include the rulers, wealthy, and commoners.
The role of women and children in the society differed from the roles of men. Women’s role was to serve the male and to acquiesce to the males need. The role of children was to respect all elders and do whatever they were told to do.
2.The government responded to either a rich or poor economy by doing what the elite commoners wanted. Because of the plethora of commoners, they were viewed as the majority, therefore well spoken.
3.The empire was a flourishing one with a lot of wealth. They reacted to this very well by trading conservatively and smartly. Social 1 How were the ideas of the dynasty shown in the arts and technology?
-ideas of the dynasty were shown in the arts and technology because the paintings and art show how perpetual and talented people were, while writing stories and poems. It was shown in the technology that they were very flourishing and wealthy by putting a big foot forward in the technology improvement and development. 1) There were many important writings, thoughts, ideas, and philosophies that were developed during the dynasty. A very important piece of writing included The Kangxi Emperor's Southern Inspection Tour, two mammoth scrolls that documented his second tour of the South and celebrated his success in winning over the Chinese populace and becoming a true monarch of all China.
2)The arts that developed throughout this dynasty include the “individualists” paintings which were paintings that sought to express in their art their own feelings regarding the fall of the Ming dynasty. There were many other paintings including the emphasis on birds, mountains, and people. They sometimes also included poems written directly on the paintings. Other beautiful handcrafts of this dynasty were the creation of porcelain. Also, Chinese created a writing that had characters to describe words. They wrote this calligraphy with an ink brush.
3)Forms of technology that developed included the creation of suspension-bridges with iron chains, a push cart with a sail, rotating de-spelting machines, magnetism, and much more.
4)Technology was used in peoples lives because the people needed suspension bridges to cross over rivers and bodies of waters. They used magnetism in many ways, one of them including magnets.
