Best Answer

In the 1800's industry grew and so did trade. as more trades were placed, more global competition went on and so each country wanted to be on top of the global market. When Europe found themselves short of items, they borrowed from Asia and Africa. this made the colonist work all day and night to provide for there country which made them tired of being used. This is one of the ways WWI started

Was World War I unexpected?

Not entirely. Though the assassination of the Arch Duke was a short term cause of the war, many long term causes included economic downturn, rivalries, and entangling alliances would have brought the countries to war regardless of the "sparks" that set off the conflict.


What are the factors causing world world 1?

The immediate cause of the war was the June 28, 1914 assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, by Gavrilo Princip, a Bosnian Serb citizen of Austria-Hungary and member of the Black Hand. The retaliation by Austria-Hungary against the Kingdom of Serbia activated a series of alliances that set off a chain reaction of war declarations. Within a month, much of Europe was in a state of open warfare. The context which helps explain the war was increasing economic and military competition between Britain and Germany. Germany's industrial economy was fast overtaking Britain's, but the German economy lacked a major empire to back up its home economy. The economic race between the two powers led to military competition, in particular the building of numerous "Dreadnoughts" -powerful military ships.
