which of the following was a weakness of articles of confederation?

(2) Answers

The most important weakness of the Articles of Confederation was the government. The Articles made a very weak central government and powerful state governments. In a way, the states were like separate countries. They were one country by name only. The Congress did not have the power to make taxes or laws for the states and the currency was pretty much useless. This resulted in the rewriting and eventual cancellation of the Articles of Confederation. The Constitution was later drafted creating a much more effective government.


The federal government , under the articles , was too weak to enforce their laws and therefore had no power . I hope that's help !
