Mongolian Effects on Russia and China
Mongol political control in Russia was different than China. One could argue that Mongolia was slightly “looser” with the Russian government. The Russians were aloud a grand prince to lead under Mongolian power but they were forced to pay tribute.
Not only did the Mongol rule have a huge effect on the politics of China and Russia but the economy was affected as well. During the Mongolian rule, the China became a heart of trade for the Eastern world. This gave the Mongols complete control of the Silk Road. China had things that so many other places in the world wanted such as silk and porcelain. With a high demand for these Chinese goods the jobs were created, trade flourished, and the Mongolians highly benefited from the booming economy in China.
The Mongols had a very different effect on the Russian economy than the Chinese economy.
