Historical Change

Trade

Trade can bring change throughout the world in many ways, whether it's the interaction of different people or the products being distributed. A couple examples of this are:

U.S. Trading Partners

Trading wouldn't be successful unless there were people willing to negotiate and trade with each other. A couple of companies that trade their products across the world because of the US's good trading terms with other countries are:

Genocides

Sadly, not all change is good. In some cases like genocides, the change isn't for a good cause. A couple of genocides throughout history are:

Wars

Like I said, not all change is for the best. In this you will look at how wars over the ages have caused change:

Conflicts Over Ideas

In many cases, change is brought on by conflicts over different ideas. Often these arguments happen between religious and political groups but they can happen in our every day lives, they just won't be as significant. Take a look at how these conflicts over ideas have brought change:

Cold War-It was the conflict of ideals between US/NATO and Soviet Union. The war was more of a battle of spies more than a war. The result of it was US started having a friendly relationship with Russia. (Stephanie)

Terrorism

This is by far the worst cause of change. Terrorism is when an extremist group threatens to kills people because they think their idea over a subject is better than everyone else's. A couple examples of this taking place is:

Technology

Technology has become the reason for many examples of historical change. It has come to the point in our generation where we use technology almost every where we go. A couple examples of historical change through technology are:
