In contrast to the middle and New England colonies, the Southern colonies chose to export labor-intensive crops: tobacco in Chesapeake Virginia and Maryland and rice and indigo in South Carolina, which were believed to be very profitable. Most slaves were people of African descent. The benefits of slave-produced cotton extended to industries beyond the South.

      Harvey CHOICE "These powerful and well-written essays, collected in a clearly organized volume, shed valuable light on a long-neglected aspect of colonial history. As the growing wealth of South Carolina's rice economy demonstrated, slaves were far more profitable than any other form of labor available to the colonists.

Slavery Permitted The lifting of the Trustees' ban opened the way for Carolina planters to fulfill the dream of expanding their slave-based rice economy into the Georgia Lowcountry.

They and their band of supporters bombarded the Trustees with letters and petitions demanding that slavery be permitted in Georgia. The crux of their argument was that the Trustees' economic design for Georgia was simply impractical.
