A League Of States The Continental Congress that was established by the U.S government created the Articles of Confederation. Among the states, the articles was only a league of friendship. 13 sovereign was created, the states had self-rule and independence.
Weak Government The government was infective and weak, the Articles of Confederation created this type of government. Everything the government did had to be approved by at least 9 states, every state counts as one votes. George Washington didn't like this government.
No Taxes/No Money The government didn't have authority to collect taxes and money. All states made its own agreement and also had its tariff laws. The governments couldn't make trade agreements for each nations.
Public Order The national government couldn't make any army's or navy's, they couldn't enforce public order. The U.S had no military forces, the U.S had many problems with other nations but couldn't deal with any of them because they had no military services.
High Debts The U.S owed money to other nations because they had borrowed money from them during the Revolutionary War, they were unable to pay the debt to the foreigners because the U.S didn't have 12 million dollars. Nations considered U.S as no finical future.
Worthless Money People owed money to the state governments. At least 12 different local currencies and some foreign currencies too. They wanted to fix the problem and they do so by printing out worthless paper money and using Spanish dollars.
Farmers In Trouble Farmers are in trouble because they're expected to pa taxes in cash but barely had any. Farmers were thrown into prison until their debts have been paid, this made it worse because the farmers had no opportunity to grow their crops and make up the money.
Shay's Rebellion Daniel Shay led a group of poor farmers in the state who were ready to protest against the taxes. They went up against the local courthouses and federal arsenal but this led to chaos. The Rebellion had to be put down.
National Solutions Needed To address nation problems, national solutions are needed. The U.S needed a stronger government and the constitution of the U.S needed to solve these problems and meet the needs of the Articles of Confederation.
