Tong AofC Solomon

A League of States The AofC implanted the government for the young nation. The articles were really terms of relation among the 13 states. It created a league of 13 independent states with total independence.
Weak Government The AofC crippled the U.S government, creating a weak and inefficient government. Due to the government having a one-chamber Congress with each state having one vote, every action and solution needed the support of 9 of the 13 states for it to be carried
No Taxes/No Money Under the articles, the government had no money and no authority to carry out taxes. Each state had total self-rule so it was free of any concerns for the other states.States with good seaports imposed taxes on goods from other states(tarrifs).
Public Order The young nation couldn't enforce public order.Due to each states having its own militia, the government couldn't create an army or a navy to enforce its rights in dealing with other nations.
High Debts The economic and financial problems plagued the young nation.The government were in debt to nations which they loaned money from during war.The U.S was in massive debt owing 12 million war debts to foreign nations, and 65 million more in debt.
Worthless Money There was confusion about an official currency.To combat the the money shortages, local states started to use a variety of currencies such as British Currency and Spanish dollars. It was impossible to impose a national currency with many states crippled.
Farmers in Trouble Farmers were hit hard with taxes. Their lands were highly taxed and were expected to pay in cash,but with money shortages,farmers did not have cash to pay the taxes as they were paid in goods.They were jailed but it was nearly impossible to pay it off.
Shays' Rebellion Shay's Rebellion was caused by the heavy taxes on the farmers. Daniel Shay led a group of farmers to combat the "unfair" taxes on Farmers.The fires of the rebellion were stamped out by local militias.
National Solutions Needed A strong united government was necessary for the the young nation to survive. The Constitution of the U.S was written to combat the flawed policies of the Articles of Confederation.
