One essential concept for understanding the 20th-21st century is, colonialism.

Colonialism- Western/industrialized powers like the US, occupying another nation for foreign control of the nation for the purposes of influence, economic and geo-political gain, resources and other benefits

Significance

  • resources extracted from ┬ácountries fueled the industrial revolution
  • created a legacy of transculturalization
  • left many colonized nations/cultures damaging effects

Question:

Compare and contrast extraction-based colonialism and settler-based colonialism. Why are some former-colonalized nations better off than others?
