The Jewish Moment and the Two Expansion Systems in the Atlantic, 1580–1650

WHY DID EUROPE EXPAND? Was it because the smallest of the continents had developed so many dynamic and innovative elements that it had to spill over? Or was it the other way around — that the process of rapid innovation and competition pushed out those who could not keep pace with the developments at home, and who by moving overseas hoped to re-create the world they had lost in Europe?1
To my mind there are many reasons to support the view that the European expansion contained both progressive and regressive elements. In fact, it is possible to argue that there came to exist two expansion systems, one dominated by the Iberians and one dominated by Northwest Europeans, mainly the British, French, and Dutch. In the Iberian, or first, expansion system, the conservative elements dominated the process, while in the second expansion system, the innovative elements gained the upper hand.
