Qing Bureaucrat

The Qing Bureaucrat was an important piece of Ancient culture due to its importance in economy, arts, and inventions in everyday life.

Many people would believe that with their government the Chinese would have a lot of control with the economy but due to the population and amount of territory they owned there was no way to have absolute control of the economy. The Government did not control many trades and declared it a part of private citizen life but they did however control what they called the trades that were essential to life. One trade the Chinese controlled was the Salt trade and they required an official license to trade salt. The government used Copper and Silver as trade even though they had a high demand for silver, which was unrequited.

During the Qing Dynasty there were many inventions. One invention was the water-powered pounding mill, which helped the Europeans trade with the Chinese for their silver. Another invention is the irrigation system created by the Chinese to help produce crops for trade. All of the inventions by the Chinese were to improve their trading with the Europeans and to acquire the silver. The Chinese also invented the loom, which helped to create patterned cloths that helped trade with foreigners.

Water-Powered Pounding Mill

The Qing Bureaucrat was an essential piece to the ancient world because of their involvement in the world’s economy. China was inventing new things to enhance their trades and the Qing Bureaucrat would take control and influence people to do what aligned with the government and kept trades in order because the government relied on these trades because the Chinese could not create Silver. The Chinese relied on the Europeans who got it from America through trade because they could not create it themselves and required the Silver for their currency. The Qing Bureaucrat influenced people to invent machines like the loom or irrigation to make it easier to trade for their silver and other goods China had a high demand for.
