(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.

The railroads helped these industries expand their territories which not only brought wealth to the large companies but, it also helped create jobs for many people. The railroad industry became an important gateway for immigrants because it introduced them to different opportunities of work and living. The railroad industry also helped to pour money into America’s economy.
In 1750 political liberalism, the enlightened age, Infrastructure, and the economic climate allowed Great Britain to seek new job opportunities and exploit new business ideas. In addition, literacy, public education and the middle class was rising immensely. Concepts like partnerships and selling shares were introduced during this time period. The process of the Industrial Revolution was rapid in Western Europe however, by the 1900 all of Europe was involved. Over all, the effects of the revolution changed the way materials are transported, how products are made, on a global basis.The Industrial Revolution was a critical turning point in European history because the changes made are integral in the modern age.
Industrial production became heavily dependent upon the intensive use of capital-equipment produced for the express purpose of increasing efficiency. A reliance on tools and machinery allowed individual workers to produce more goods than before and the advantages of experience with a particular task, tool, or piece of equipment reinforced the trend toward specia... ... middle of paper ... ...n to promote industrialization was far from negligible in the British case, the role of government has been considerable in Germany, Russia, Japan, and nearly all the nations that have been industrialized in the 20th century. By definition successful industrialization leads to a rise of national income per capita. It also leads to changes in the distribution of income, in living and working conditions, and in social conduct and convention. The Industrial Revolution in Great Britain and elsewhere led initially to a fall in workers' purchasing power or to a deterioration in their living conditions.
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.
New technologies and innovations allowed for the manipulating of resources until they produced as much profit as possible. The concentration of power and monopolies required, and received, massive numbers of cheap labor. It was that very wealth the monopolies created that attracted millions of immigrants to this country to find work. A cycle of factors where every one played a part, some more crucial than others, yet equally dependent upon one another. This cycle fueled America’s industrial boom, and propelled it into the world’s industrial market.
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. All of these components of England resulted in an increase in large towns and cities in order to sustain the growing population. The most prominent of these new cities was Manchester. The city sprang up after 1750 and swiftly grew in population to become a leading textile center in England. Manchester’s rapid urbanization, benefitted the industry in Europe as a whole; however, this success raised many issues- namely the fact that the citizens of the city suffered great morale and health declines.
The economy also experienced an increase with the rapid population growth of the seventeenth, eighteenth, and nineteenth centuries, which led to a larger work force, allowing the innovations of the Industrial Revolution to become major manufacturing tools and to create factories and assembly lines. This imperialism, and thus boosted economy led directly to the Industrial Revolution, and allowed Great Britain to develop more
Furthermore, it engendered cooperation between nations that lead to overall development, therefore the whole economy grew. Lastly, the Industrial Revolution has changed the way we live and started new modern era of business, competition and new technologies. Works Cited Deane, Phyllis. The First Industrial Revolution.

The Gilded Age within the United States represents an era that was marked by extensive economic growth as well as massive social engagements. The labor force conditions within the country were very attractive when compared to the rest of Europe and this served to attract a large number of immigrants. Furthermore, coupled with the explosive industrial growth, the Gilded Age turned out to be a prosperous as well as a treacherous era particularly for the jobless immigrants. At a social level, the Gilded Age was responsible for questioning some of the long-standing social ideals that had been in place for centuries. The following sections address the economic and social trends that acted to shape the United States into what it is today .
