Answer-Pros: land ordance(the northwest ordance of 1787- territories of state were reorgainized) Peace with Britain Cabinet departments (war, treasury, and foreign affairs) full faith and credit(states would respect citizens and laws from other states)

Cons: No power to generate revenue(tax) no power to regulate trade congress had no power Approval of 9 states to have a law passed Amendments to the Articles of Confederation required all 13 states approval(back then there was only 13) no executive branch no national court system

Cons- no central government= no military, each state was run by militia. There was also different currency in different states and different state constitutions with different laws

The Articles of Confederation created a very weak central government. Obviously, this did not infringe much on local control. On the other hand, it didn't infringe much on serving parochial self interest to the detriment of your neighbors.
