Goods that are brought into our country that are made in another country Import
Goods that are made in our country and shipped to other countries Export
When a country exports more than they import Favorable Balance of Trade
Law made by Britain that stated the colonies could only trade with Britain Navigation acts
These both contribute to trade and they also both have to do with Great Britain and how they control trade Mercantilism and The Navigation Acts
This stopped because the work was to harsh, also because the slaves would not make it the full 4-7 year term Indentured Servants
