Imagine that you are a senior advisor to Napoleon. You have been asked to prepare a memo outlining the advantages and disadvantages of disrupting Britain's trade with Europe. Your memo should examine the impact of such a move from the standpoint of Britain, France, and the rest of Europe."
My memo lists the advantages and disadvantages for France.
To: Napoleon Bonaparte
From: Sara, Senior Advisor
Subject: Continental System
The advantages for France would be the limitation of Britain's sytem, and the limitation of Britain's power. The disadvantages for France would be the reduce of its economic system, and the loss of trade from other countries.
Is there anything else I could add in here? I want just a little bit more info, thanks
You need to add explanations:
The advantages for France would be the limitation of Britain's sytem<~~what are those limitations?, and the limitation of Britain's power<~~what are those limitations?.
The disadvantages for France would be the reduction of its economic system<~~what does this mean specifically?, and the loss of trade from other countries<~~this needs detailed explanation, too.
This book looks as if it has information that might help. It's a book, though, not available on the Internet.
