I can't guarantee this is correct,,but Spain was doing a great job of looting the Americas for al the silver and gold it could get. Portugal was running the 'Black Ships' in Asia, and Brazil was (still is) great source of silver, gold and precious jewels. Spain #1

Best Answer

Well I'm a History buff,,,very well read,,oh and I used to teach at the univ level. BTW,, England was a 'no show' in 1600, France pretty much the same.

Best Answer

Can U also share your source of info. please?

Best Answer

I did not reference any history books,,, call it personal knowledge. Columbus sailed the oceans blue in 1492-- for Spain,, he came back 3-4 more times. By 1600 Spain controled all of SA but Brazil, controlled all of Mexico, all of what we now call Florida, and most of the Caribbean. they're finding sunken Spanish galleons (ships). For more specific info google: spain/1600/economic wealth.

GDP in 1700 ?? Er gee the science of Economics hadn't been even invented by then. Any economic data re Asia is at best a wild guess until at least 1900. Europe did keep 'books',,, but there was no concept of 'gross domestic product' 500 yrs ago. However silver and gold were/are easily weighed.

Best Answer

At that time, England and Spain and to a lessor degree Holland and France were the major players. As time progressed England became Top Dog. By 1900 Spain had lost most of it's posessions and England followed suit by 1970. That information is based on the history books I have read but, can be verified with a Google click.

Best Answer

U are right...but before that England was not so rich, atleast by material wealth.

Best Answer

Not that easy....it's controversial..

Best Answer

you just have to pick your criteria and back it up with research. It's not like there is one way measure and compare countries completely objectively and it's not like you can get real accurate accounts across the centuries for most countries
