Example text

The Bajío began the creation of Spanish North America; together they formed a new and expansive society that played a key role in founding a new world of global interactions shaped by commercial relations—the world of capitalism. That newness is best illustrated in the contrast with Spanish Mesoamerica, just south. For millennia Mesoamerica had been a domain of settled cultivators, states and empires, trade and integration, and cultural complexity. The celebrated defeat of the Mexica (Aztecs), rulers of the last Mesoamerican empire, by Cortés and his gang of entrepreneurial freebooters led to the conquest and subordination of Mesoamerican states and communities.

France soon followed, farming and fishing along the St. 14 A broad pattern emerged. The vast and diverse regions subject to Spain dominated the production of American silver from the sixteenth through the eighteenth centuries. That unparalleled stream of wealth stimulated commercial development across Spain’s Americas and a new world 37 world trade, shored up the Spanish regime (which still faced bankruptcies when the costs of war and empire exceeded silver flows), and inhibited Iberian industrial development, in large part because silver made it cheaper to buy manufactured goods than to make them.

Silver, driving the most profitable and the most global of trades, helped to increase the wider trade tapped by those without silver. Slaves made sugar in plantation colonies ruled by different, often warring, European regimes—Spanish Santo Domingo and later Cuba, Portuguese Brazil, British Barbados and Jamaica, and French SaintDomingue. Spanish, British, and French traders dealt with independent natives to gain furs and skins—commerce that in the seventeenth century was marginal to Spain, important to Britain, and crucial to France.
