'''Why''' was mercantilism historically significant?

Colonies of the New World were established to support the "mother country." Therefore, an established elite class of merchants and traders serving the interests of themselves and other elites produced a stark divide between the rich and poor. It created the need for cheap labor which resulted in an explosion of indentured servants. Because indentured servants were of a lower caste, there was not much need for a central government in the colonies. The elites governed. Also, the need for cheap land was, indeed, a prominent fixture of the elite caste. Therefore numerous skirmishes with the Native populations arose as Natives were seen as competitors for land.
