The trading of silver between the 16th and 18th centuries was a huge hit world-wide, and had a very large impact on the social and economic life of several nations. The emergence of silver as a high demanded product all over the world socially adjusted the aspects and qualities of people’s lives within many different areas of the world. The way people lived was now structured based on how much silver they had; as the feudal system placed peasants at the bottom, societies now placed the “poorest” people at the bottom.

Not only did Ford affect the production aspect of his business but he was also the first person to raise the minimum wage of his workers. “One of Ford’s most astonishing moves, to combat high turnover and absenteeism caused by assembly line monotony, was to double the minimum daily wage to $5 and cut daily working hours from nine to eight” (Davis). He valued his workers since they were the ones who made his business possible in the first place.

Even companies outside of automotive industry were intrigued by Ford’s
