        1. How did the ideas of Montesquieu connect the ancient world with the New World? He borrowed the idea of three branches of government from the Roman Republic and passed it along to American revolutionaries. His book on economic policies was based on the command economy of Egypt, and it was used to shape the American financial system. For indeed any city, however small, is in fact divided into two, one the city of the poor, the other of the rich; these are at war with one another; and in either there are many smaller divisions, and you would be altogether beside the mark if you treated them all as a single State.

Whoever has wealth and property above a certain amount will be allowed to take part in ruling, and whoever has less than this will have no say in government.
