In 594 B.C. Solon created four political and four ecomonic reforms to help the Athenian Democracy. The four political reforms divided social classes into four classes, outlawed debt slavery, allowed all citizens to participate in the Assembly, and allowed citizens to bring chargers to court. His four economic reforms lawed that all fathers must teach their sons to trade, foreign tradesmen were allowed to settle in Athens and were given citizenship, the regulation of crop export (olives), and managed grains. These political and economic reforms assisted Athens in becoming a stronger and unified city-state.
