20 Mercantilism The colonies were supposed to supply raw materials for England and also provide a market for English goods. Like many European nations at the time, England believed that its colonies should benefit the home country. England hoped to grow wealthy by exporting manufactured goods to the colonies. This system actively discouraged the growth of American manufacturing. 20

The Colonies could not make money by selling hats to other countries The Molasses Act Put a high tax on all molasses, rum and sugar which the colonies imported from countries other than Britain It would make it more expensive to buy molasses, rum and sugar from any place except Britain. This would be a problem because the Colonies traded areas of the West Indies for these products The Iron Act Declared that no new furnaces which produced steel for tools could be built in the colonies. It also banned the manufacture of hardware in the colonies. This would seriously limit the ability of the Colonies to make manufactured goods.

30 Why? When? Who? What? Navigation Acts The Navigation Acts were a series of laws that regulated trade between England and its colonies. Under these laws, only colonial or English ships could carry goods to and from the colonies. The laws also listed certain products like tobacco and cotton that colonial merchants could ship only to England. The Navigation Acts were passed by Parliament. They affected a lot of people in the colonies, especially merchants. Parliament began to pass these acts in the 1650s. This continued into the 1700s. England passed these laws to ensure that only England benefited from colonial trade, not any other countries.
