This is a 19 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on Civilizations of East Asia - China Develops a New Economy. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Beginning with the Tang Dynasty, China’s economy experienced tremendous growth during the Tang and the Song Dynasties. During the Tang Dynasty, northern China was the wealthiest and most populous part of the country. But wars and attacks by tribes from Mongolia drove many landowners to move south. During the Song Dynasty, China experienced a period of great prosperity and became one of the most advanced economies in the world.
The growth of cities changed the way many ordinary Chinese lived. Cities were vibrant centers of activity, from buying and selling, to hobbies and board games. Public-works projects provided employment for many city dwellers.
Urbanization also stimulated culture, giving artists an audience of wealthy, leisured people. Paintings produced during the Song Dynasty are considered some of the finest in the world. Urbanization increased commercial activity that contributed to the growth of cities. Merchants, peasants, peddlers, and traders sold all kinds of goods. China enjoyed the highest living standard in the world at that time.
