beneficial: 1. People who go to a foreign plantation's industry is far much more than if they stayed in their homeland 2. Colonists can export goods to other countries in Europe, which brings in money or the growth of their countries 3. If you marry here you can bestow thrice more in all necessaries and conveniences 4. The colony is an island, and by nature is perfect for navigation above any country in Europe My argument over why colonies are NOT beneficial: 1. When you create a colony you are more prone to Indian attacks 2. Colonies are usually NOT open-minded to other opinions and kick people out of their colony when they have different beliefs 3. When you are part of a colony you are more exposed to diseases and have a shorter life expectancy 4.Much of the land in the majority of the colonies has been ruined due to certain crops grown and because of this if you are not wealthy you will probably not be able to afford your own plantation to grow crops http://www.socialstudiesforkids.com/graphics/houseofburgesses2.jpg http://www.historywiz.com/images/earlyamerica/jamesfortpainting.jpg http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_i0zXBjLSUrg/S-8K9sqyZxI/AAAAAAAAAh4/2AUfFBm3-XQ/s1600/USS+Jamestown+Leaving+Boston+2007.jpg http://www.hsd.org/images/DeFacts_Images/delawarr.gif http://www.pbs.org/godinamerica/people/john-winthrop.html http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/e/e2/Famlandstburyan.JPG/220px-Famlandstburyan.JPG
