The industrial revolution may sound awful to many people, but it did bring a lot of valuable knowledge to the world. Industrialization brought many benefits to the world in the 1800s and even paved a path for generations to come. The ability to purchase items, faster more efficient production, and transportation were all positive effects of the Industrial Revolution. The industrial revolution made it possible to purchase items instead of making them all on your own. In the book, The Working Man’s Companion it clarifies how life was in the 1830’s.
In many years ago, the first Europeans bring amazing changes in the size, focus and goals to North America, and also had impact on the Canadian businesses. The business history are divided into six time period: Colonial Period, Industrial Revolution, Industrial Entrepreneurs, Production, Marketing and Relationship. These time period brought out amazing changes in business history. Prior to 1776, during Colonial Period basic focus are on the agricultural production, small colonial towns can serve as market because the success of the economy focused are on the rural areas, depending on the production farms, and also the success or failure of crops affects the economic aspects. From 1760 - 1850, there are a big change in machines and this time period are called the Industrial Revolution.
The Industrial Revolution was an increase in machinery that helped to produce goods within the textile industry. It started in England in the 1700’s. Beginning in the middle of the eighteenth century, machines did this and other jobs as well. It also greatly improved farming methods. The Industrial Revolution began because England is abundant in natural resources, people left to that area for jobs, and inventions made it easier to perform those jobs.
The overall change in economy due to the Industrial revolution was drastically transformed into something new. In document 3, it shows the difference in steel production over the years. In a 45 year span, the steel production nearly tripled. Due to Henry Bessemer, the process of making steel was faster and more affordable. This gave more people jobs and started a mass production of steel since it was cheaper to make.
Industrial revolution led to the affect the role of science had in large society Once the industrial revolution came, science methods became more common by factory owners. Science brought up new ways to improve machines and production. Scientific practice slowly worked its way down to the lower class. It also caused a conflict between religion and reason. 66.
The Industrial Revolution simply hastened the process of anthropogenic climate change, as new energy sources such as coal and fossil replaced those of wind and water. The Industrial Revolution, and the accompanying improvements in agricultural productivity, led to a dramatic population
There were long struggles that people went through in the development of factories, but in the end it was all worth it. People were benefited in many ways because of the changes that were made, it helped to create new social classes. The new factories had created new and large amounts of wealth, this wealth belonged mainly to the factory owners, and merchants. This had created a brand new middle class made up of skilled workers, business people, and wealthy farmers. Land owners used to be the richest people but now the middle class people were starting to grow richer then the land owners.
The Industrial Revolution heavily affected the United States during the nineteenth century, invoking changes in lifestyles, occupations, and even the economy. Many Americans drastically changed how they lived and how they worked, and the government had to change how it responded to certain events due to these new ways of life. We as a society have grown to an enormous extent, both domestically and across the globe. New forms of manufacturing have led to longer life expectancies, more conveniences than one can think of, and a lifestyle built around not having to make everything yourself. At the same time, the economy has grown considerably, creating various new job opportunities, encouraging immigration, and generally increasing the satisfaction
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.
The industrialization of England brought a lot of change to the nation. It was either a good change or a bad change. It all depended on what the change was, for example more factories meant that there were more jobs or more people in the city meant that it was over populated. England had the resources to build, to use, and they had land to build in. They had many waterways connecting the East Coast and the West Coast, this allowed them to do many things, for example the rivers was a source of power for these factories.
