In order to do this though they had get the reforms they wanted by having a role in government and take some of the power from the king, because he supported the Aristocracy. At no point in the build up to the revolution did poverty become an issue, the Bourgeoisie were looking after their own interests and trying to create a equal society in which they would become the most powerful and richest.

The manufacturing middle class took the place of feudal guilds, but they could not keep up with the increasing demand. This led to the industrial revolution. The manufacturing middle class was replaced by the modern bourgeoisie, or the industrial upper class. The bourgeoisie rose to power through competition alone, or the fight for power and wealth. The bourgeoisie had the most wealth, and therefore gained the most powe... ... middle of paper ... ...ted that society is moving forward.
Election campaigns require tremedous financial resources, so bought-and-paid-for politicians are servants of a financial aristocracy and not rather representatives of the American people. powerful interests—whether industrial, financial, or agricultural—that predominated in each state whose wealth and power far surpasses the European ruling classes so despised by the Founding Fathers. noble dream that the United States was founded on could not be fully realized within, was belied by the development of capitalism and the resulting exploitation of an emerging working class and the dispossession of small farmers. social inequality inequality and injustice still remaining privilege United States to seize control of the key strategic regions of the world In order for the American ruling class to impose its deeply reactionary agenda of austerity and imperialist expansion, it is dispensing with democracy and resorting to ever more repressive forms of rule. the winner will rule, not with the consent of the people, but at the bidding of Wall Street, which, with the rest of corporate America, is financing their $3 billion presidential campaigns.

In a nutshell, it can be argued that in the event of serious economic developments, various people and groups held different views of what exactly a wealthy society should be. It is crystal clear that Andrew Carnegie and William Graham Sumner held same view on wealth accumulation whereas Henry George strongly advocated for policies that would enhance equality.

The worker would no longer stand for unjust treatment and thus the American worker did counteract the relationships between themselves and their employers. American industrialization relied upon poverty and immigration for its success. If immigrants had not worked for low wages at factories and industries the economic boom would not have taken place. The money made during the early nineteenth century was necessary to stimulate the growth in business. American workers finally became fed up with the unfair treatment they had been receiving, therefore they joined unions.
Heavy industrialization in the United States created a new economic reality in which “the poor enjoy[ed] what the rich could not before afford” by decreasing the labor and money needed to produce material goods (Carnegie). However, it also created problems for the poor in the form of pollution, moral deterioration, and lack of interest in work (Rauschenbusch). Despite the fact that both works focused on a Christian approach to interacting with the economy, their conclusions differed greatly, with Carnegie arguing for the rich to continue to accumulate and distribute wealth to public projects, and Rauschenbusch calling for the rich to redistribute directly to projects that would improve the daily health and moral well being of the poor. While the beliefs were inherently different, their importance was the same. It mattered less what actions the men perceived to be the most beneficial, because both were actively engaging the moral implications of technological advances and their effect on the economy, something that few modern economists
Further demand could not be satisfied until Britain enlarged its capacity to produce goods inexpensively. British merchants did not want to raise the prices of their goods and discourage demand. So, they sought more economical and efficient ways of using money and labor so the amount each worker produced would increase faster than the cost of production. The merchants achieved their goal through the development of factories, machines, and technical skills, thus, industrialization. The French Revolution began in 1789, after the start of industrialization.
Human kind has always felt the need to own luxurious items in order to show their social status. In Ancient Rome clothing was a symbol of status and power. The color purple was considered to be the most prestigious and the higher classes wore it to show their economic power. The reason for this prestige was that the most expensive dyes were used to produce the color purple. Therefore, the color became synonymous with wealth and power [Duffy, 2007].
These men, like Thomas Jefferson and George Washington, were interested in making money and their only real barrier was England. Taxation without representation separated these men from their money and they felt that it was unfeasible to continue living under a government which such absolute power. England claimed that the colonies were virtually represented in parliament but the government in England was looking into the best interests of England and not the best interests of the colonies. The forefathers of our great country were interested in forming a new government utilizing the ideas of the enlightenment period but they were also very interested in making money. England was making it increasingly difficult for these men to get richer.
They understood that lowering their prices by lowering wages was the best way to compete with each other. They also began to incorporate the idea of monopolies, which put all new or small business owners out of work and made entrepreneurship very difficult. Overall, Smith could not have foreseen the many effects that occurred after The Wealth of Nations was published. He mainly focused on how the manufacturers of factories would “ destined to supply the great wants of the great body of the people.” The good of his work really does outweigh the harmful effects of the revolution.
