O.P. Austin, “Does Colonization Pay” The Forum, 1900
“Modern progressive nations lying in the temperate zone [Europe and North America] seek to control garden spots’ in the tropics. [mainly in Africa, Latin America, and Asia] Under [the progressive nations] direction, these places can yield tropical produce [fruits and vegetables]. In return, the progressive nations bring to the people of those garden spots the foodstuffs and manufactured goods they need. [Progressive nations] develop the territory by building roads, canals, railways, and telegraphs. They can establish schools and newspapers for the colonies [and] give these people the benefit of other blessings of civilization which they have not the means of creating themselves.”
