The “captains of industry” brought growth to the US economy. The immigrants allowed for these “captains of industry” to become powerful. The immigrants also led to urban boom. All in all the Gilded Age was not a perfect time period but the success of the age outweighed the failures of this time
Neoliberalism is the main cause of the difference between the rich and the poor in the states. It expanded the market efficiency by competitions between individuals, raised a gap between the rich and the poor. Rich people are becoming much richer based on their original properties while poor people are becoming poorer and suffer great economic problems in their lives. This does not only happen between individuals but also between companies. The unemployment rate increased because of neoliberalism.
The subgroups of the alliance were creating higher costs for one another, rendering each other unresponsive to the changing fashion choices of the U.S. consumer, and thereby reducing their own competitiveness. They were also struggling to predict the frequent policy changes associated with the textile industry, the cost of protecting the industry was proving to be too high, and the quotas were also driving the exporting countries to become high end producers. The protectionism was also increasing globe-trotting that in turn, further globalized apparel trade. In fact, the only good use of the trade barriers was as a powerful incentive with which the US could reward its friends, like it did with Pakistan after
Abstract The global garment industry, worth more than $400 billion dollars today, is a very lucrative industry. Garment factories in developing countries working for retailers in developed ones shows how efficiency is increased and every party can benefit through outsourcing of labour from developed countries; retailers and consumers get clothes at cheaper prices while employment is provided to areas plagued with poverty. However, it is evident that many of these garment factories are sweatshops, which are factories and businesses that violates local or international labour laws, such as providing workers with atrocious working conditions, providing minimal compensation or even employing child labour. Like it or not, many of our clothes does not come ethically and they have probably encouraged labour exploitation in one way or another. How have sweatshops benefitted society or caused harm to it?

People were getting paid to do these kind of jobs well, as much as it was needed to have workers in the booming industry. Overall, the Neolithic Era and Industrial Revolution have shaped us to be what we are today. We have gotten to increase and improve our current industry and improve our social organization to expand it through other regions of the world. This lead to many opportunities that would never have ever been possible
New jobs that led to the Industrial revolution were factory jobs, railroad building jobs, canal building jobs and whaling. These were important because they helped in changing what a typical work day was and increased the amount of annual revenue for an American. The Cotton boom in the South helped the South by increasing its revenue and allowing them to make large amounts of money by having slaves produce large amounts of cotton. During the cotton boom an invention by Eli Whitney was founded, the cotton gin. It helped to separate the seeds from the cotton, therefore producing cotton at faster rates, “...the cotton boom increased the demand for slaves…” (James A. Henretta, Rebecca Edwards, Robert O. Self, 2011, pg.
Nowadays, in the light of the development in technology, especially in transportation and media, trade and communication has increased rapidly among countries. This trend is called globalization. Generally speaking, globalization has its own advantages and disadvantages. The development in international trade and communication has created employment and opportunities for millions of people, but it has also made poor countries poorer. In my opinion, globalization has both positive and negative aspects.
The overall performance of the Indian manufacturing sector has widespread implications for various aspects of the economy; employment, being one of the chief areas of impact.

Industrialization changed the country and made it one of the greatest industrialized nation in the world. However, it came with a price; the industrialization relied upon poverty and immigration for its success. The effect of industrialization changed the course of our nation. It also changed the lives of people, but at a significant price.
In order to meet the demands, big companies and industries need to outsource their products to other countries in their manufacturing process. With the ability of outsourcing, companies such as the fashion industry can make huge profits from using cheap labour from other countries. Since regulations vary from each country, thriving companies can abuse the way they produce their products since there would be little to no restriction of what they cannot do. It is great how popular brands are all around the world; however, the cost of the products varies differently from country to country. In order to see the true cost of producing a product, one must look into the external costs.
