Columbus then landed on San Salvador, changing the world forever. His need for mine workers and plantation labor gave rise to the slave trade. In time, entire nations were transformed by the interplay of trade, migration, and colonial rule. In the 18th and 19th centuries, globalization developed even further thanks to the steam engine, steam ship, and the airplane. Inventions such as the telegraph, telephone, radio, and television propelled globalization at even faster speeds than ever before.
