Age Of PlunderStreaming Video - 2014
This episode reveals the explosion of global capitalism that began with Christopher Columbus stumbling across America while searching for China. The search for Gold and spread of Christianity caused Europeans to colonize the New World, discovering many new lands, such as that of the Incas in Peru. We visit Cajamarca, where the King Atahualpa was held captive by Pizarro and forced to convert to Christianity. At Amsterdam's tulip fields, we reflect on the first global stock market crash-Tulipmania. In the 145 years from 1492 to 1637, European capitalism was born and spread around the globe.
