What was the economy of ancient Egypt based on?
In ancient Egypt, like most ancient civilizations, agriculture wasthe main part of the economy. Some of the primary crops produced inancient Egypt included wheat, barley, lett…uce, beans, onions, figs,dates, melons, as well as cucumbers.
As far as we know, they did not a standardized medium of exchange- that is Money. The Egyptian kingdom operated on a moneyless economy- though they did have a slave system ( p…ossibly prisoners of war or of criminal cases) and a rigid caste structure- nothing along the lines of coinage, paper money- gold or silver ingots- or anything resembling Banks or Mints- have ever been recovered or dug up- in a country as thoroughly explored by archaeologists as Egypt. another oddity was they did not draw in perspective, despite the fact the Pyramid is one of the 5 Platonic solids! My Dad, who had some background as an art student, could never figure this one out!
They had a money system but only differently. They traded gold and of course as you know they had slaves so you had to be a government official to deal with economy.
Ancient Egypt's economy was based on agriculture and trading in surplus produce. Trade helped them expand there civilization.

the pharaohs put people in diffr=erent places to protect economy so it can go down
I am not very sure, but I think the Egyptians did have economy based on a division of social classes because they had different classes so they probably had different economy.…
Their economy was based on the Pharaoh. It is that way because the Pharaoh would have to run the whole country. Without the Pharaoh the whole country would fall apart.
We have very little knowledge of this. What has surfaced, is that the Ancient Pharoh period Egyptians appeared to have a moneyless economy. There is no evidence of any sort of… coinage, paper money ( they did develop paper, by the way) or anything remotely like Banks, storage vaults for Gold Ingots, etc. As far as we know they had a moneyless economy- Howver they also had slaves for the heavy labor. From what has surfaced the sophisticated Egyptians were quite intellectual and interestingy enough did not have a formal judicial system either. Crime was very low and not a major social problem of the society- contrast Robin Hood, Black Bart, et al! And all this in a Pagan society. It is interesting.
please improve the answer the last entry was not the right answer for a fact because i to am looking for the answer...please improve it.
I think one is kushites! What about you?!?!?!?!?!

There is evidence, for lack of a better term, that the Phaoronic Egyptians had what amounted to a moneyless economy! True they had a slave class and a closed-circuit class sys…tem- no promotion ladder so to speak off. No coins, bills, Gold Ingots for Bank deposits, etc have ever been unearthed in Egypt= from Ancient times! In comparison Greece had a thriving money system based on Drachmas which were used in modern form up to the Euro period. Rome, also had a money economy and ancient coins of both of these states are collector"s items many are rare- but I have never heard of an Ancient Egyptian Coin. another oddity was they did not draw in perspective, despite the fact the Pyramid is one of the legendary Five Platonic solids. Arf teacher Jon Gnagy made much of the 5 Platonic solids in his TV art classes.
The Ancient Egyptians realized that there is an Order in the world. That realization came from their contemplation upon the natural world. The lesson they had learnt in cultiv…ating the land, led them to cultivate themselves in accordance to the Law of Life. Their faith that there is an Order that governs the whole universe opened for them avenues to learn about their far-reaching future. When they realized that death is not an end of human life, they became aware that there is an unseen aspect to every visible thing. Their perception of Order and their awareness of the unseen aspects formed the base of their belief in the divinity of everything.
