You are a staff reporter on economic issues at a major online media outlet. Your editor gives you an assignment to research and comment on the question of technological change and innovation in the medieval world.
You are specifically asked to focus on one or two examples you find appropriate from any (or all) of the three major social structures studied in class: the early feudalism, Mercantilism, or from the Non-Western World.
Your task is to analyze the process from invention to innovation and develop a forward-looking outlook in a very concise and to the point analytical piece. You should explain why you chose a specific example and why in your opinion it would be the best way to illustrate the role of technology in economic transformation of the chosen period.
