46Tax farming: assigning the responsibility for tax revenue collection to private citizens or groups historical examples in the early modern era: Ottoman, Mughal, Qing, France, Spain, Holland, England and Russiaan important step in the development of state revenues and economic growth by providing a method for collecting taxes across a large area without the need for a tax-collecting b______________Bureacracy in France from the 13th century and was also practiced widely in Holland, Spain, and England. It was one of the most important sources for the primitive accumulation of capital. As capitalism developed, tax farming was preserved in a distinctive form in 20th-century Italy, where private and savings banks collected certain taxes. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, forms of tax farming were used for collecting tax arrears in the USA. Tax farming was widely used in the Ottoman Empire beginning in the late 16th or early 17th century; it was abolished in It was also widely practiced in Iran from approximately the tenth century to the 1930’s and in India from the 13th or 14th century to the 19th century.In Russia, tax farming (otkup) was introduced in the late 15th or early 16th century. It was used especially for customs duties and salt and liquor revenues. Tax farming to collect liquor revenues was introduced in the 16th century and assumed the greatest importance during the 18th and 19th centuries. Treasury revenues from the liquor tax constituted more than 40 percent of the income from all taxes in the state budget. In 1863 tax farming to collect liquor revenues was abolished and replaced by an excise tax.See also

60Share of the World's GDP, 1AD - 2008 Historically, the world's balance of wealth undertook two major shifts, one triggered by the industrial revolution (early 19th century) and the other, unfolding, triggered by globalization (late 20th century).Source: Data compiled by A. Maddison, University of Groningen.Prior to the industrial revolution, the economic size of a nation was directly proportional to its population, which was dominantly rural. Agricultural surpluses permitted an initial division of labor and was used to support various crafts, administrative and service activities. The capacity to grow food was therefore the foundation of wealth of nations, since the greater the food surplus the larger the potential base for non-agricultural activities. Since China and India were mostly relying on rice cultivation (the most productive form of agriculture) supported by extensive irrigation systems, they achieved early in history the world's largest populations and correspondingly the largest GDP. They jointly accounted for 50% of the world's GDP up to the early 19th century. This situation would endure until the industrial revolution. The mechanization of production brought by the industrial revolution broke the relationship between population and economic output.The mechanization of production brought by the industrial revolution broke the relationship between population and economic output.

771633 trial of Galileo Galilei geocentric view that the Earth is at the centre of the universe. After 1610, when he began publicly supporting the heliocentric view, which placed the Sun at the centre of the universe, he met with bitter opposition from some philosophers and clerics, and two of the latter eventually denounced him to the Roman Inquisition early in Although he was cleared of any offence at that time, the Catholic Church nevertheless condemned heliocentrism as "false and contrary to Scripture" in February 1616, and Galileo was warned to abandon his support for it—which he promised to do. When he later defended his views in his most famous work, Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems, published in 1632, he was tried by the Inquisition, found "vehemently suspect of heresy," forced to recant, and spent the rest of his life under house arrest.1633 trial of Galileo Galilei

83Enlightenment—good government—Philosophers asked: what is life like for humans in the state of nature?What is the purpose of government,Then they defined the “social contract”What do people give up under the social contract?What does the government give in return?Under what conditions can someone rebel (if ever)?The notion of the social contract implies that the people give up sovereignty to a government or other authority in order to receive or maintain social order through the rule of law. It can also be thought of as an agreement by the governed on a set of rules by which they are governed.Social contract theory formed a central pillar in the historically important notion that legitimate state authority must be derived from the consent of the governed
