Contributing to life in Britain by making products and goods more affordable to common citizens and boosting the national economy, the growth of industrialization had an overall upbeat effect on the historical past. Equally, the renovated social class divisions altered the existing layout of ancient civilizations. Seeing that industrialization was benefiting Great Britain, many other countries soon began to replicate the prosperous routine. Industrial developments in the United States and continental Europe were inspired by the booming success of industrialization in relationship to Great Britain’s economy, political state, and social class divisions.
Without both industrial revolutions the United States would have not been able to industrialize or modernize. Even though the Industrial Revolution began in Britain, the United States was able to become the more powerful country after both Industrial Revolutions. Before the Civil War, industrialization was slowly occurring with the invention of the steam engine and later the steam boat. It helped oversea shipping faster, making Britain successful. After the Civil War, the United States particularly New York, built many factories that increased the population and the number of workers.
Over the course of the nineteenth century, Great Britain underwent many social and economic changes due to the prosperity of the country. England’s superiority to other European countries in this era can be attributed to many different factors. First, the simple presence of a Parliament helped to maintain a strong government that granted an unprecedented number of rights to its citizens. Another cause was that this country laid the foundation for the Industrial Revolution globally. The Industrial Revolution was the general name given to a time period that marked the transition from hand-made products to machine-made products, leading to a booming economy and an abundance of jobs for unskilled workers.
The innovative thinkers, urbanization, and infrastructure made the revolution significant not only in the 1750s but to present day. Without the Revolution, society would have still worked in urban areas, transportation would have not been discovered in the marketplace. Concepts like partnerships and selling shares were triumphant leaps towards expanding the market on a global basis. The industrialization in Britain was a drastic change in the economy, the shift between agriculture in rural area to manufacturing and services in urban locations. This shift is predominant in the present economy, proving that the Industrial Revolution’s legacy expanded globally.
Also, many new forms of transportation and communication were developed and improved. Agriculture became industrialized by teaming up with some industries to produce the needs of Americans and many immigrants. This event helped the U.S.’s population and economy to grow, even though it had some malicious things that went on it was still more positive than negative. The British were the first to have an Industrial Revolution (US History). The first industrial revolution started in Great Britain during the 18th century.
The Industrialization Impact In the history of the United States, it can be argued that the economic change that occurred in the midst of industrialization was the foremost change that led to us becoming a world power. This change began with the newfound desires of U.S. companies to do things efficiently, and the invention of newer machines such as the cotton gin enabled them to do so. These inventions made many industries that were becoming unprofitable more profitable again, and gave the economic boost that the U.S. economy needed. With increased efficiency and the lowering of costs, many factories blew up around the country, and thousands of jobs were created. People began to migrate to these newly established urban areas around factories, seeking opportunity, steady income to feed their families, and a way to move out of poverty.
In the nineteenth century, manufacturing was the most important factor because it brought about industrialization. The expansion of both economic and technological advances also brought about the changes in American society. The growth and eventual dominance of market capitalism in the United States changed the lives of all Americans fundamentally. The Market Revolution and the rise of market capitalism influenced the working class because of new inventions, like the cotton gin, and it encouraged farmers to raise more cotton in the South, and brought people in the North greater opportunities in the work field. With distant but profitable markets now attainable, farmers and manufactures now produced for the market rather than for their own personal consumption.
In conclusion, the industrial revolution brought many changes to Britain. The changes included the textile industry, the steam powered engines, which helped create steam-powered locomotives and steam boats. Because of this major improvement in the industrial revolution railroads began to sprout and was a more efficient way to transport goods and people across Britain. The Industrial Revolution no doubt brought rapid changes to people’s lives in Britain.
(Bailey) Overall, the Industrial Revolution brought more money to North America which caused the country to flourish and it kept the country alive and helped it grow to what it is today. The Industrial Revolution, in my belief, was the most important thing that ever happened to America. The country needed money and the Industrial Revolution brought the money which it needed. The cities began to grow because of the people moving to the factories. The amount of jobs also grew and this was good for the society.
In the 19th century, the Industrial Revolution brought wealth and power to Great Britain. Many changes occurred in Britain, politically, socially, and economically. New inventions were created and mechanized factories were built that helped the country expand as a whole. Many argue that this change impacted the economy and social life of those individuals living in Europe. Many individuals wrote on behalf of the change, some going for it and others going against it.
