From the time period of 1870 to 1900 the growth of big businesses in the United States had a major impact on the economy, politics, and the response of Americans of Americans to these changes. These businesses grew significantly in number, size, and influence and had an ever-lasting effect on Americans and their surrounding community. Industry and its new technologies have had an amazing impact on reducing the costs of the goods necessary to life, such as food prices, fuel and lighting prices, and the cost of living (Document A). The standard of living of most Americans should have increased, as more wages would be left over to spend on luxuries. Aware of the extra-money available to working families, the different pieces of a Big Business have acted in such a way to suck that extra-money from the poor families.
The growth of population resulted from more reliable food supplies, thanks to the new crops that originated in the Americas and widespread resistance to disease. Better job opportunities and more dependable food supplies led people to marry at earlier ages and have more children. A high birthrate meant a large percentage of children within the general population.
By collectivizing and industrializing the agriculture and industries. Stalin hoped to improve Russia’s economy through making production of food and materials more efficient. To assess how successful were Stalin’s industrial policies in developing the Russian economy one would have to measure the results by the production of goods and the quality of life as that is much to do with food production. By 1928, the USSR was 20 million tons of grain short to feed the towns. Industrialization was creating even more towns, increasing this problem.
Another factor of changing gender roles might’ve been that since the development of agriculture, women didn’t have much to do in the new society created. 4) During the Neolithic Revolution, agriculture had spread from Asia to places like Northern Africa and Europe. Most humans had settled the Middle East but there were also many people in China and Japan. The dependence on wheat and rice substantiated because more people had settled in Asia and the supply was higher than anywhere else. Agriculture had changed human society
The Amish have coped with this situation in many ways. They have subdivided their farmland in order to grow diverse crops, increased their livestock and migrated to other states where farmland is cheaper and a majority of families work in cottage shops or rural factories in various trades. The rise of cottage industries and small shops marks an historic turn in Amish life. There are three new industries that they have embarked upon. One is home based operations in addition to bakeshops, hardware stores, quilt shops and repair shops to name a few that cater to tourist, but serve the needs of the Amish and non-Amish alike.
This allowed the worlds to have more trade and the people to have more variety and things to eat. Lastly, another important effect is that farm land is much more common since people are now farming the newly discovered land. The amount of calories per hectare or 100 acres has greatly increased, as stated in document 8, which is helpful to nourish people and expand trade. All these things greatly helped civilization and the worlds at this time period. The negative and deadly effects of the discovery of the Americas were undoubtedly costly to civilizations and worlds, as I will state in the following paragraphs.
With the introduction of the Royal Exchange, the agriculture-based economy of England changed drastically. Before, villagers bartered good, but the implementation of the Royal Exchange eliminated bartering and a goods market was established. As a result, landlords and other villagers expected money in return for services. A major economical focus in the Elizabethan Era was raising sheep. When Queen Elizabeth took the throne in 1558, it is estimated that there were more sheep than humans in England.
Agriculturally, modernization of farming techniques continues to boost productivity, though farming remains a low income job. Urbanization continues, but the large majority of China’s population remains as poverty stricken farmers. No longer socialist, China has moved steadily toward decentralization. Increasingly, industries and enterprises tightly controlled by the state have been allowed a measure of freedom, and incentives have increased production. Ch.3 Understanding the role of culture Please describe the nine cultural dimensions of the GLOBE research, and provide examples of countries which have high and low score in each dimension?
Development of Health Care Services Part One: Identify and give reasons for the developments in public health and health care provision in England during the 1800s to present day.

Urbanisation occurred due to better agricultural machinery, producing more food in rural areas, this accounted for a thriving population, however employment opportunities outnumbered population forcing people to migrate from rural areas to urban cities seeking employment from industrial factories (Jenkins 2002).
