    What were some of the effects of Imperialism on Southeast Asia?

    A:

    Some of the effects of Imperialism on the countries of Southeast Asia were the transfer of a significant amount of wealth out of the region, a shifting of the region's labor focus away from agriculture to the production of commodity exports and the area's formerly self-contained economy becoming dangerously vulnerable to shifting worldwide price and demand fluctuations. Millions of Southeast Asian lives were altered by the economic and environmental changes that took place as a result of the natural resource and animal life balances that were rearranged and upset by the extensive colonial enterprises taking place in the region. Huge numbers of laborers also migrated into Southeast Asia, particularly from India and China, and changed preexisting ethnic, social and religious demographics.
