Scramble for Africa

Æ self supporting colony [for maximum profit - inexpensive means] [no overhead,
maximum exploitation]
- Empires are costly and few succeed due to cost-effectiveness
- elites were exploited to utilize the system of governance
Æ industry/economy - put into the hands of a company [monopoly commercial company]
Æ government [order, tax, logistics, elites - protecting vital interests]
Æ cultural imprint of cultural colonization is minimal because of ways of ruling
- regression in standard of living, education, economy
- stagnation Æ lack of development Æ compounded problems that already existed
