EXPLORATION A TURNING POINT IN HISTORY Mercantilism and CapitalismEuropean capitalism—investment of money to make a profit was becoming more popularMercantilism—building up national wealth by exporting more goods than the nation exports. a. based on the idea that the world had a fixed amount of wealth, in order for a nation to gain more, it had to take from another nation. b. colonies served two purposes to the mother nation: 1. a place to take raw materials from 2. forced colonies to but only their goods. England, France, Portugal and Spain gained massive amount of wealth. This strengthened their regions and led to the development of modern day nations. As Monarchies grew stronger in Europe, the power of the Church continued to decline.
