In the South Atlantic world system, slavery was crucial as a source of labor. They were not providing health facility and good food in that slave area therefor millions of native american died, that time the death rate reached to 80% of native population during first century. Also, relatively few Europeans migrated to the New World until the late 18th century, providing few workers for new industries. The shortage of labor became particularly acute after the Europeans introduced the plantation system, which became the main form of agricultural production in the South Atlantic system. The plantation system was particularly prominent in the sugar-producing areas of the Caribbean islands and Brazil and in the southeastern colonies of mainland North America, where cotton and tobacco were important
