Key Concept 3.3: Increased Economic Productive Capacity and Its Consequences
The fate of cities varied greatly, with periods of significant decline, and with periods of increased urbanization buoyed by rising
productivity and expanding trade networks.
Despite significant continuities in social structures and in methods of production, there were also some important changes in
labor management and in the effect of religious conversion on gender relations and family life.
The diffusion of Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, and Neo-Confucianism often led to significant changes in gender relations and
family structure
New forms of coerced labor appeared, including serfdom in Europe and Japan and the elaboration of the mit’a in the Inca
Empire. Free peasants resisted attempts to raise dues and taxes by staging revolts. The demand for slaves for both military and
domestic purposes increased, particularly in central Eurasia, parts of Africa and the eastern Mediterranean.
Essential Question: how has trade impacted the world in which we live?
