    They were far richer because of cash crops, also sugar and coffee was the OG worth its weight in gold crop and these took in Latin America far greater than the American south. This is why Latin America in particular the Caribbean and Brazil received something like 85% of all slaves during the trade. But these dont make for a rich people, it makes for rich plantation owners but leave the people poor like it did in the American south

      They were richer but went to shit because Catholic Meds are a far less competent and industrious people than Protestant Germanics.

        The average person in all of Latin America never had the social mobility than an Anglo colonist did, colonists in the US or Canada could become rich off fur trading and then return to the UK to get educated and then open a large lucrative trade in the colonies. This was a pipe dream to 99% of all Latams who were beyond serfs. Latams were richer because of plantations as I said, but this is like being rich off of gold production. If just having large gdp is what mattered, then colonial era Peru and Belgian Congo were the best places to live which any sane person knows is hogwash

          They were significantly richer:
          – “ THE INDIAN FARMER IS POOR BUT FREE. THEIR SITUATION IS MUCH BETTER THAN THAT OF THE PEASANTS OF NORTHERN EUROPE, ESPECIALLY RUSSIANS AND GERMANS. THE NUMBER OF SLAVES IS PRACTICALLY ZERO. ”

          – “ THIS MUST BE KNOWN IN EUROPE! MEXICAN MINERS ARE THE BEST PAID IN THE WORLD, THEY RECEIVE SIX TO SEVEN TIMES MORE SALARY FOR THEIR WORK THAN A GERMAN MINER. ”

          – ABSENCE OF SLAVERY: “ NEW SPAIN HAS A NOTABLE ADVANTAGE OVER THE UNITED STATES, AND THAT IS THAT THE NUMBER OF SLAVES, BOTH AFRICAN AND MIXED-RACE, IS ALMOST NIL. THE NUMBER OF AFRICAN SLAVES IN THE UNITED STATES EXCEEDS ONE MILLION, WHICH IS ONE SIXTH OF ITS POPULATION. ”

          – ECONOMIC PROSPERITY: “ AMONG ALL THE KINGDOMS (OF SPAIN IN AMERICA) MEXICO CURRENTLY OCCUPIES THE FIRST PLACE, BOTH FOR ITS TERRITORIAL WEALTH AND FOR THE FAVORABLE POSITION OF ITS POSITION FOR TRADE WITH EUROPE AND ASIA.

          – SCIENTIFIC ADVANCES: NO CITY IN AMERICA, WITHOUT EXCEPTING THOSE IN THE UNITED STATES, CAN EXHIBIT AS LARGE AND SOLID SCIENTIFIC INSTITUTIONS AS MEXICO CITY. THE CAPITAL AND OTHER CITIES OF MEXICO HAVE SCIENTIFIC ESTABLISHMENTS THAT WILL LEAD TO A COMPARISON WITH THOSE OF EUROPE.

          YES, HUMBOLDT IN A SINGLE DOCUMENT DENIES MANY OF THE ANGLO-SAXON LIES. SOMEONE MIGHT SAY THAT HE HIMSELF “ LIED ”. FOR HUMBOLDT WAS GERMAN AND PROTESTANT, SO IT IS ILLOGICAL THAT HE HAD A SPECIAL INCLINATION TO SPEAK WELL OF THE SPANISH CATHOLICS AND THEIR KINGDOMS.

          IT IS NOT ABOUT IDEALIZING THAT PAST, BUT LEARNING FROM IT, AND THAT MEXICANS CAN REALIZE THAT “ YES YOU CAN ” IF YOU EVER COULD. WE CAN GET AHEAD LEARNING FROM OUR HISTORY, THE STORY THAT SADLY WE DON'T KNOW.

            Sure bro, that's why Germans ran in the tens of millions to the USA and not Latin America, even Argentina only got a few hundred thousand for the massive horde the USA got. Google "the 1848 48''rs" We literally got two million Germans between 1840-1850, why didnt these krauts go to Latin America if what this German academic said was true? Obviously this had to be a position backed by fact and not sheer metaphor? lol

            No homie, i’m just saying that this was an obviously out of touch academic no different from those of today. Even in 1800 no Germans were going in serious numbers to Latin America while they were flooding the USA in the hundreds of thousands since even during the revolutionary war, our population would multiple multiple times in this period while Latin America’s was stagnant till its 20th century baby boom. No one was choosing Mexico and even the few who did in this period was only because the government was shafting the natives to give out prime farmland to illiterate Euros. Not really something that a nation confident in its super based worker wages has to do lol

            There were no significant German immigration into north america before the 1840s. Besides, protestants would naturally go to another protestant country before a catholic one regardless of its quality.

            Why should religion matter when immigrating? Italians and Irish came in droves to the USA before we banned Italians for a brief period. They were lining up to be descriminated against because life was that much better in the slums of New York over those in Buenos Aires.

            You didn't even knew who Humboldt was before entering this thread. It's like not knowing who Voltaire or Hume are. Embarrassing.

            Also nice whataboutism, this thread was about Latin American wealth, i stuck to the truth in all posts and talked only about the wealth disparity and social mobility found between the average Anglo colony and Iberian one, you started bring random quotes that had nothing to do with the reality and perception of literally everyone else during the period. I dont care if you can pull a random isolated mine in bumfrick scorching north Mexico paying their workers more due to high mortality over some random kraut one where they had a hundred thousand serfs surrounding said mine.
            Also stop seething about religion, no one cared about that in the age of nationalism and it’s a modern day cope from wannabe trads on /misc/

            Also dont beed sources when reality agrees with me, find me literally any source that says Latin America as a whole got even half of the amount of immigrants the USA did between 1800-1848. People immigrate for wealth, and reality disagress sharply for you and your cope. Everything I google literally points to the USA alone got more immigrants during the revolutionary war than latin America did as a whole before the Italian exodus, which mind you half of the entire total came to the USA before being banned and then resorting to Latin America

            The USA was around 33% German in 1800. Just admit you know nothing anon, our founding father literally debated about possibly making German coofficial since we had so many kraut immigrants. You know nothing about immigrant trends and just want to make yourself feel better for the lack of accomplishments of your forefathers, you desperately need for them to have lived in pre-Capitalist utopias where all workers made a dozen times more than the Euros and that all of Latin America was a hidden gem till the evil Anglo bankers came to steal your money and made you no longer kangs.

        Slavery is terrible for the economy. It only brought wealth to the ultra wealthy.
        The US south was struggling hard even with rice and tobacco as cash crops, the cotton gin really only delayed the inevitable. Meanwhile the North had a much stronger economy and more people allowing it to actually develop unlike the south or latin america.

    >In turn, the Portuguese and Spanish governments did not tolerate the presence of foreigners in their colonies.[9] In Brazil, the Portuguese implemented a policy of preventing other Europeans from settling in their colony, by closing the ports and destroying any foreign vessel that tried to anchor in Brazilian lands.[10] It was only in 1808, with the Decree Opening Ports to Friendly Nations, that non-Portuguese immigration to Brazil was allowed.[11] The Spanish immigration policy was so strict that the Spanish government prohibited the entry not only of foreigners in its colonies, but also of Spaniards who were descendants, up to the second degree, of israelite and Muslim converts, as well as of Spaniards who were not subjects of the Kingdom of Castile, and even subjects had to have special authorizations to emigrate to the colonies.[9]

            Haiti had a complete slave revolution that resulted in tens of thousands of whites being genocided and half of all half breeds facing the same. It would as if when Mexico became independant, all whites were killed and then all mestizos were made into serfs. Latin America’s revolutions mirrored the USA’s and it isnt unfounded to expect similar results instead of anarchy

This was done to eliminate any socioeconomic disparities along racial lines, and also to end the predominantly criollo and peninsulare influence in Paraguay. De Francia himself was not a mestizo, but feared that racial disparities would create tensions that could threaten his absolute rule.[7]
