This was as true for Asia, where the economies of both China and India were based on silver coinage, as it was for Europe. The Catholic Church was a major player in New Spain's transformation.� Church-owned monasteries, haciendas, obrajes, and other institutions dotted the landscape.� Natives were required to give tribute to the church, and many priests became rich.� For every friar who sincerely believed in his holy mission, others kept concubines, solicited women during confessionals, drank heavily, fed people to their dogs, and so on.� As with monastic wineries in Europe, New Spain's versions often made pulque, although many priests tried stamping out drunkenness.� The Jesuit hacienda of San Xavier was devoted almost exclusively to making pulque (it sold more than six million pounds of it in 1770), and had one of the highest incomes of any hacienda. [64] Another economic effect of European hegemony was the introduction of guilds.� They were anti-competitive institutions and natives were often excluded from them.� Blacksmiths and veterinarians, with their relationship to elite European horsemanship, made it clear that natives were not allowed in their professions.� All apprentices were to be "Spaniards, pure and without stain, as demonstrated through their baptismal records, for ours is a noble profession." [65] Laws enacted in colonial Mexico, called New Spain in those days, were explicitly racist and designed to oppress the natives.� Three races – European, African, and Indian – met in the New World.� The Spanish developed 16 categories of interracial distinction in 18th-century New Spain. [66] � Of the 200,000 “Spaniards” in New Spain by 1570, it is estimated that two-thirds were of Jewish or Moorish descent, to cloud the racial picture further. [67] � Conquering Spaniards marauded from town to town and seized the best looking women for their concubines and created Mexico's huge mestizo class.� Erstwhile Cor t�s allies Tlaxcala and Huexotzinco found themselves worse off with the Spanish overlords than the hated Mexica, and they were the natives who got the “good deal” from the Spanish.� They would not have believed it, but the days when the Mexica ruled were the “good old days.”� Helping Cort�s conquer Tenochtitl�n slit their own throats in the end as Mesoamerica's native population collapsed during the century after the Spanish conquest.
