Moors saved Europe from the Dark Ages.

The British and Spanish were filthy rich from Caribbean plantations. The French, I don't know.

I'm no expert, but I can tell you that Glasgow was built in large part from the proceeds from slave tobacco.

Does anyone know how much the money made from slavery contributed to the Industrial Revolution that both Europe and the U.S benefited from?

At one time in point locally a few coastline cities did benefit somehow from it to build some public buildings. However keeping the triangular trade was very costly too. Nevertheless it didn't develop Europe. The industrial revolution did.

Conquering by means of military force has never benefited the receiving end.

I once heard that slavery helped to fund the Industrial Revolution.

How much did the slave trade benefit native Africans? You know the rulers or random Africans would capture people and sell them. What benefits did that give to Africa? Seriously. What benefits did the slave trade have to the Middle East? The Arab slavery was the largest amount of slavery ever to happen. What effects did that have on the Middle East? A lot of people don't know about the Arab slave trade. Here's a good website to get some info. 10 Facts About The Arab Enslavement Of Black People Not Taught In Schools - Atlanta Black Star
