What was the economy based on in the middle colonies?
- the middle economy i think is based on trade for boats , food , and other things and trade!!!! ;) (;
The middle colonies based their economy on the planting of wheat, and trade. A lot of areas were great for ports. Meaning, that the middle colonies conducted trade between the New England and Southern Colonies. Also, the areas in the middle colonies were used in trade with European nations. Wheat also soon became a very profitable item as well.
The economy of the New England colonies depended on their locations. Towns that were along the coast had an economy based on fishing, whaling, and the building of ships. Those people that were inland had an economy based on farming. The New England colonies were Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and New Hampshire.
