Old and New Imperialism There were two different time periods where Imperialism occurred The first wave of imperialism called the Old Imperialism lasted from around 1500 1800 The New Imperialism lasted from around 1870 1914 The three main differences that we will discuss today are the differences in economics politics and the motive behind all of this The new and the old waves of imperialism were very much different through economics The old economics was pretty much all about trading they imply bought the wares brought to them by the native merchants They didnt have much of a money system it was sort of a trade system Also in old imperialism they had trade commerce on much of the coast in South America as well as Islands near Asia and England So the wave of old imperialism was all about trading However the new imperialism had a different economic idea They didnt just want the goods of native merchants they wanted special types of predicts They would move into countries to get their products Instead of having trade centers along coasts they would set up plantations docks and factories in other countries They also got as much money as they could out of people it was all about getting money in the new imperialism unlike that of the old imperialism The new and old waves of imperialism also differed politically In new imperialism they wanted to dominate politically they wanted their politics to dominate and rule everything They wanted to dominate in order to secure their investments Although in old imperialism the people didnt care so much to have political power everywhere they just wanted someone to rule them and keep trade going in the countries that they are living in The motive in the new wave of imperialism and in the old wave of imperialism had a great difference Old imperialisms motives was mainly about bringing civilization to other countries
