    well, depending on the colony, it could be a swing in either direction. Hawaii for example, when missionaries began showing up, the usual diseases started moving in and taking out the local population. Its sugar grew well, and the US cancelled its tariff on Hawaii's sugar, and sugar farmers profited greatly. Their profits motivated them to overturn their current government to be annexed into the US
