6th period Some of New York's modern products are dairy cattle, furniture, and machinery. Dairy cattle are used for their m ilk. Furniture is used for homes, and machinery is made for factories.I would say the distribution would be national for New York. Pennsylvania's colonial products were wheat, barley, rye, and wine.Wheat and rye were used for bread and other foods, while wine was used for a beverage. I believe the distribution of this colony would be local. Modern Products Pennsylvania's modern products are tomatoes, mushrooms, and chickens.Tomatoes and mushrooms are used for foods and chickens are used for their meat and eggs. The distribution for Pennsylvania probably is national. Delaware Colonial Products Delaware's colonial products were furs, tobacco, and grain. Furs were used for insulation and clothing, tobacco was used for smoking and making money, and grain was used for foods. I believe the distribution was local. Delaware Modern Products Delaware's modern products are cows, chickens, and sheep. Cows are used for their meat. Chickens are used for their meat and their eggs. Sheep are used for wool for clothing. The distribution for Delaware is national or possibly world wide. Definitions Economics The branch of social science that deals with the production and distribution and consumption of goods and services and their management. Produced To create a manufacture a man-made product. It also means to manufacture, produce, or refine. It also means to bring forth or yield. Distributed The act of distributing or spreading or apportioning.It also means the commercial activity of transporting and selling goods from a producer to a consumer. Consumed A private individual at whom advertisements are aimed; a buyer. It also means a person or organization that purchases or uses a product or service Conclusion In conclusion, the middle colonies had very many resources such as corn, tobacco, and wheat. Today, they still manufacture these things and make money and companies from them. I thought about it, and colonial times aren't that different from modern times at all. Many resources we have today are the same as what they had back then. Even though many resources we have today are the same as back then, there are still many resources that are different such as in Pennsylvania. Back then settlers grew wheat and barley and now modern residents grow tomatoes and mushrooms. All in all, the colonial and modern economy are quite different, but are also alike. Introduction The New World had many perks besides political and social ones. Though its one of the most difficult subjects to understand, the New World had many economic factors, as well. In this slide show, I will explain what struck most money in Pennsylvania, Delaware, New York, and New Jersey. I
