The environment condition was bad with smokes surrounding them. The release of harmful gases into the air from factories pollutes the world 's air, doing harm to the environment, further leading to global warming. Then, though it did boost many job opportunities, the living condition of the workers during the industrialization were poor. Company towns owned by business were rented out to employees. The owners forced them to live in isolated communities near workshops and forced them to buy goods with high interests.
Without a doubt, industrialization was one of the biggest factors in how the United States developed. It gave us the means of mass production, better transportation, and eventually the consumerist society that the United States is today. Industrialization did drastically change American society, but did it change America for the better? Did it do more good than bad? While industrialization did lead to multiple social and economic problems, the advantages significantly outweigh the disadvantages.
The Guilded age was a period of wealth and improvement which was used to cover up poverty and corruption inside the united states. Eventhough there were lots of improvements, not only in technology but also in society, there were lots of problems. Problems such as corruption and poverty. As time went on people started to realise this problems and some got improved, but others didn’t. This gilded age was a problem.
In the story “The Upside of Income Inequality”, Gary S. Becker and Kevin M. Murphy effectively express’s the importance and need for income inequality in our society. Furthermore, Holly Ellyatt’s newspaper article Income Inequality: Is It Good For Everyone? serves to also point out that economic success and greater productivity is linked to “income inequality”. Although it may seem extremely unfair for someone to make up to two hundred and fifty times as much money as someone else, this notion of “income inequality” actually benefits the society as a whole by encouraging others to work much harder in life and better themselves and their education. For example, the increase of income inequality in the 1980’s greatly increased the education for both women and men and other races such as African Americans.
It was the late 1800s early 1900s when the American Industrial Revolution was just beginning. This was a time of great technological advancements, when factories began to thrive and electricity was just beginning. It was also a time of misery and death. This industrialization had a negative impact on American Society because it created child labor, terrible working conditions and tenements with conditions that could only be described as atrocious. To begin with the Industrial Revolution had a negative impact on American society because it caused thousands of children to die and become seriously injured due to child labor.
Environmental pollution made by industrial emissions has a detrimental effect on humans, animals, plants, soil, buildings and structures. It reduces the transparency of the atmosphere, increases the humidity, pollutes the water and soil and expands the diseases. In order to produce more corporation have to pollute more and buy the carbon credits from other countries. But what is the reason behind? Can corporations improve their technology?
Humans are also struggling with large amounts of pollution in some cities which is affecting the environment on a large scale. “Global Insights: People and Cultures” informs that, “Mexico City’s ozone level climbed well over the ‘very dangerous’” zone. This means that pollution is having a negative effect on the ozone. With the vasive amounts of urbanization, people are producing more waste and garbage which is piling up in the streets of cities. In “Rubbish!
Production had gotten more efficient because of inventions like the steam engine, cotton gin, and light bulb. The economy was doing well and there were lower prices on goods. An increase of jobs led to even better production. Society was getting more and more determined and inspired because of new inventions and machinery.

From the article of railroads,“Not only did the railways provide greater opportunity through extending markets, they also stimulated more people to start businesses and thereby enter the markets. An extended marketplace provided a greater number of individuals the opportunity to produce and sell goods.” (Kelly) Opportunity overpowers the negative factor of the architecture and locomotives being unfriendly to the environment. Another positive factor that outdoes the negative is the advantages of mass production. In the article about nineteenth century architecture,“While the battle of styles was engaging the energies of the architects, great changes were introduced in industry. Mass production became possible in glass, iron and later steel” (19th Century Architecture).
In a time after the Civil War, the national government encouraged production which improved their financing by switching to the gold standard, improved communication by boosting the telegraph, improved transportation by building railroads. The economy was also improving massively also due to natural resources, demography, and law. Railroads allowed people as well as supplies to be transported quicker, safer, and cheaper. Companies started taking advantage of the demand for building materials, they bought each other out through vertical and horizontal integration, formed monopolies which made the price go up, and made the owners very wealthy. Aside from all of these positives, there are also various problems that were caused during the Gilded
