The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire The Pax Romania was a great time for Rome but as the saying goes all good things must come to an end The decline of Rome however was more than simply a good thing to be ended It had problems that only surfaced every few decades until the fall when all the problems were shoved in Romes face at the same time The main problems of Rome can be separated into politics economics invasions and religion These four factors made Rome self-destruct Romes main political problem was its lack of leadership The army was negligent to follow weak leaders and often killed them The politics were closely woven into the other reasons of the decline People wanted a scapegoat for the bad things happening and the easiest person to blame is the emperor The emperors did not always have the support of the army and thus fell quite easily only to be replaced by an equally weak ruler who also had many enemies With an empire as large as Rome was it is hard for one man to keep up with everything going on Probably a stronger reason for the fall of Rome was the economic situation Rome had to face The constant short reigns of emperors made people not trust Roman coinage and that drove the economy into the ground Banks refused to accept the money of certain emperors and the emperors passed laws forcing the banks to trade using weak money Price limits were set on items in an attempt to generate stability but that failed Distrust for money created distrust in the government and aided Romes fall The barbarians that constantly plagued Rome with their savage invasions did not help Romes situations either Rome had always had a slight problem with invasions but all the scuffles with Rome had caused the barbarians to become wiser The battle tactics of the Germanic barbarians were strange
