The government’s use of land grants to support the creation of a transcontinental railroad is one of the most visible and easy to recognize actions where the government stepped in to aid post-Civil War industrialism. Response to labor strikes by the government at the time also pointed to a pattern of siding with that of large businesses, whereas a true laissez-faire would have the government not involve itself at all.

Something that is interesting are monarchy governments. Monarchies are a type of government where there is a single person dictating what happens, either a queen or a king. Modern day monarchies are vastly different from the monarchies of earlier times. Modern monarchies have become more democratic and the power that the king or queen would have is now divided up between other people and organizations.
