Money, Trade and Reward (Emperor Shi Huang Di)
Transcript of Money, Trade and Reward (Emperor Shi Huang Di)
Was this method violent or nonviolent?
I think this was a nonviolent method because it helped the country to make the currency much more convenient and they helped getting the country to use the same currency and stopped lots of wars because of the different types of trade/ currencies.
How effective was this method?
I think this method was very helpful, not for the emperor only but also for the people. If this didn't happen, then everybody would have used different types of currency which would just make things very confusing!
How important do you think was it for maintaining power and control?
I think it was pretty important for conflicts about trades and currency. It is a very important to maintain using the same currency (trade.)
Did they create the method of control or did they inherit it?
The coins were inherited by the Zhou Dynasty, but the Qin Dynasty made the conis more convenient to use; they made a hole in the middle of the coin so that they could put through a string which is very convenient to carry around.
Did they make any significant changes to it?
Yes. Along time ago in the ancient times, the coins had a whole in the middle. Now we have paper notes and coins without holes. Back then, people put thread through through the coins. Now, we have wallets to put our coins in. But not only do we have coins, we also have paper money!
