Transcript of European Absolutism
Some implications of Absolutism:
The society was extremely limited; they had restrictions regarding religion, economics, & social gatherings. This was to prevent & control the spread of ideas. For example: if people started thinking for themselves, or rebelling against their religion, there would be no need for one absolute ruler in their lives. It would be hard to control an empire that wouldn't listen to an absolute ruler Strengths of The Spanish Empire Wealth --> Gold and Silver
Land Weaknesses of The Spanish Empire The gold that came from America to Spain made Spain temporarily wealthy, but caused long-term economic problems like inflation. Inflation was accompanied by a rise in the prices of goods and services. Merchants became increasingly wealthy as people bought their silver that the civilians needed.
1500: Expulsion of Jews and Moors (Muslims) led to a loss of many valuable artisans and business people. In that year, Spain's nobles did not have to pay taxes and the tax burden fell on the lower classes. As a result to that, Spaniards bought much of what they needed from France. Because of this, the Spanish went bankrupt 3 times under the rule of Phillip. Spain continued to struggle economically, while the Dutch had a prosperous middle class.
