Ships have contributed to our economy by providing a variety of jobs, like for example; boatsteerers, harpooners, blacksmith, carpenter, cook and etc. (Source 2) As an individual I personally think that ships have changed our society and economy/cultures. As a group we’d all have to agree that it have changed our economy and culture for the better. My reasoning for that statement is that it makes trading items easier, travel (back then it was better than recent times) a little harder but durable, and last but not least ships/boats allow us to hunt and fish for food and money. Generally speaking lets’ get into our first topic, trade.
Now ‘n’ days we (USA) get everything imported and also we export items. Ships make it easier to trade items with other states if needed. This has made a big change to our culture back then and also today as well. I’m sure without trade and ships our society would be very different then what it is today. (Cultures have a tendency to be affected when trade is involved. Source 4). Back then ships had made a big difference because they could sell items and trade for money. Now lets’ get into traveling.
Traveling back then changed the culture so much mainly because when people would travel before boats/ships they would have to walk many miles. Having boats/ships made it easier...
