Ecomonics By Samantha Keller
The main jobs during the Tang dynasty were farmers, porcelain making, paper- making, tea leaf processing, shipbuilding, and metal making. The Tang dynasty was also all about trade. They traded foodstuffs, salts, tea, medicine, textiles, gold and silver, steel, wool carpets, sugar, pottery, ivory, and silk. The Tang dynasty traded silk and many other products along the silk road. But the silk road was not the only way they traded. They also traded with the Persians, Greeks, Syrians, and Romans by way of the Grand Canal.

Inventions and Technology By Samantha Keller
The Tang dynasty invented many things that we still use today. Some of those things are paper from trees, calligraphy, and gunpowder. However they also invented many things that have not survived throughout the ages including meridian line, paddies (flooded fields to grow rice), pumps, and many instruments.
