Here's another excerpt of 1493 I found at Salon.com - mostly about the fate of Columbus' first settlements, but it ends with considerations on the biological component of 'Spanish globalization'.

An explanation of the group's icon would be a good first discussion topic =)

I agree with A.

Let's make this a group that covers all of history, the whole 6000 years of it .

Comment by Adriana on August 19, 2011 at 1:13pm

Hey, can this group be about ancient history too or just recent news? If that's the case, I would change the description. Just a thought. I love the idea of this group, but it should not be only about current events, with this title, IMHO.

Chinese Exchange Rate Policy In The Age Of Spanish Globalization

16th Century China relied on silver coins as a medium of exchange despite a lack of domestic sources of silver. What’s more, given the prevailing technologies of the time China produced a number of goods for which there was European demand, but Europe produced no goods that Chinese households wanted to consume. Consequently, as Charles Mann documents in 1493: Uncovering the New World Columbus Created, China ran a large trade surplus in order to amass foreign exchange:

Today, of course, it’s not silver from the mines of Potosí that China is amassing. Instead it’s debt created by the US Treasury and the government-sponsored mortgage agencies. But the basic structure of exporting real goods in order to amass monetary instruments is quite similar.
