The necessity for this better network to move goods manifested itself in this desire for improvement. After the War of 1812, demand increased for better roads and canals to expedite the transport of goods across the nation (Dudley). This improved package of commerce and transportation directly contradicted the attitude of Agrarian Republicans like Jefferson who hoped that industrialization would not dominate America or its politics, fearing the inevitable shift of the country into continuous international turmoil. Jefferson’s fear was realized as nationalism manifested itself in manufacturing, with patriotic Americans taking pride in the factories that had recently mushroomed forth (Dudley). After the war, many Americans felt differently due to the war’s stimulative effect on the economy.
The English prospered from this because it meant that had excluded those raw materials from trade with other countries. This act also then led to triangular trade which allowed for trade between Europe, Africa and America. The triangular trade was a system in which slaves, crops and manufactured goods were traded. It was implemented to rectify trade imbalances between regions. Triangular trade led to world economy growing rapidly as more goods were being made and traded more than ever before.
One of the most controversial of these is the impact its’ invention had on slavery in America. Instead of slavery becoming obsolete which was the inspiration behind this invention, the cotton gin actually contributed to a massive explosion in the growth of slavery. Whitney thought his invention would decrease the labor involved in production of cotton which in turn would decrease the need for slaves. However, the cotton gin just changed how slaves were used in the production of cotton and did not decrease their need. The cotton gin increased cotton productivity which increased profits for farmers.
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).
This had positive and negative effects on India that continue to impact the present. On the one hand Britain introduced India to more modern technology and communication systems, had a positive economic impact and increased the standard of living of India. However, there were also several negative impacts that British imperial power had on India, including famine and the development of a racist culture in India. I will explore whether British imperial power was positive
This did cause struggles in the beginning, but eventually paid off in the future by creating more equal politics. When these major events occurred in the Gilded Age, it caused periods of success, failure, and sometimes overall no change. Some outcomes of these new ideas being formed caused corruption, but led to the government and politics becoming much stronger and more organized. Most of the ideas published wanted to increase wealth and rivalries between businesses. Even though the Gilded Age benefited with the reforms created and fell with it’s poor use of money, it helped create the way we run our government
The Europeans were making money off of cash crops planted in the fertile land, which helped them to become more powerful. For example, the tobacco seed brought in extreme wealth and without Columbus’ exploration, the plant may have never been cultivated. The new world also provided vast land to populate, which helped to increase their culture’s size, which lead to a more advanced society because they had more people learning and working. Columbus’ travels provided educational and economic opportunities that bettered Europe and advance their society. Because of the improvements Columbus’ journey provided to European society, he is worthy of a celebratory
The Europeans were far superior both technologically and economically compared to the Natives they would have encountered, but as it would turn out both the Natives and Europeans would enjoy a benefit this exchange of cultures and ideas. After the Europeans crossed the Atlantic and would eventually colonize the New World, they would go on to launch a few changes in the Native American culture and the Natives were heavily impacted by this technological change. Some of the more prominent technological changes brought on by this European influence are agricultural ingenuity, new farming capabilities, a written alphabet and new firearm and weapon
The cotton gin impacted the lives of the people of the United States by providing jobs to the American people both to the northern and southern parts. Also, the cotton gin gave textiles to the United States. The cotton gin affected the U.S. politically by dealing with England in not only a trading matter, but also in a manner of discussions for treaties. The cotton gin was not the greatest invention. The lightbulb was the greatest invention because it made it available to see and do things in a more proficient manner than only advancing the cotton
The capitalist infrastructure of the world system has allowed the bourgeois to operate under a guise of an equal society. In the 19th century Europe’s engagement in liberalism led to two significant changes to society, the creation of the welfare state and the expansion of suffrage. These changes were highly welcomed by the working class and it was accepted throughout Western Europe that these changes were legitimately to create a fairer society. However, the boost of political and economic power of the working class was to curb their anger and discontent without jeopardising the activity of capitalism in the world economy. The bourgeois distracted the working classes from their exploitation through intra-European nationalism and nationalist
Despite many dreadful facts that happen throughout the Industrial revolution, there is still some positive facts that overpower the negative. Many played a role as an inventor to help improve the work ethic during the Industrial Revolution, such as John Kay who invented shuttle or Richard Arkwright who invented the water frame. These machine was being inserted into the factories, and with the help of machine, factory were able to double or even triple the speed of production instead of relying on manpower. As the result, the Industrial Revolution help the British a great amount of growth in their economy. Before the industrial revolution started from the year 1700-1760, the capital stock was 0.7, Labour Force around 0.3, Total factor inputs
The Industrial Revolution was brought about with the introduction of machinery and technology with the help of many inventors. The most crucial contributors in this revolution was James Watt who had revolutionised the steam engine. His invention drove the Revolution by improving trade, transportation as well as created more jobs. Though with beneficial outcomes of this development there were some negative results such as child labour and pollution. Trade within the Industrial revolution was enhanced with Watt’s improved steam engine.
