Cotton became the fabric of choice instead of wool, linen or silk. In this case the manufacturers of the other three may have had negative effects in their industries because they had competition but cotton was cheaper and easier to color. This gave people more affordable choices and industries a better way to make more money. Also the machines that came to be because of this part of the revolution lead to path for methods to be used in other areas like steam machines being used in boats. As a result cities grew faster and the economy was stronger.
The length of railway tracks in Russia increased form 31219 miles in 1891 to 58392 miles by 1904. In the same time period, Russia’s coal production increased from 6.01 million tonnes to 18.67 million tonnes. This shows how the government’s investment in expanding and modernizing the country’s railways resulted in significant economic gains. This was a result of an increased ability to transport raw materials to areas with the greatest population, such as the area surrounding St Petersburg. The railways, particularly the Trans-Siberian railway, also gave Eastern Russia a link to Europe and Western Russia a link to the Pacific Ocean, which made it easier to export Russian goods.
The Industrial Revolution dramatically changed not just Britain but the whole world. Between 1750 and 1900 trade and industry grew rapidly. Firstly the transport was a massive thing that changed because the first steam engines were introduced mainly to get coal around places more easily. Also many canals had been built for ships and transport. As you can see in source 13 it shows a painting of a new railway station.
While it has been argued that an exceptional economic growth caused some problems, the advantages that came with it, outweigh the negatives. Germany’s economic growth was exceptional, industries such as the production of coal and iron doubled in the years up to 1914. By 1900, Germany’s particularly strong steel industry had exceeded that of Britain’s and by the beginning of the first world war, Germany‘s share of trade in the world was equal to Britain’s. Therefore, the power of the elites was not being threatened, as the country was benefitting from the money that the economic growth had brought in, to a high extent. Germany led the way on Europe with the creation of new industries such as chemicals, pharmaceuticals, electrics and motor manufacture.
This will improve the trading process for not only the company, but also the rest of the country. The benefits of a better transport infrastructure in our countries include improved capacity and better connectivity between cities and nations which helps to boost trade, and create growth and
The liberal Tories introduced reforms because in the 1820’s the country’s state was better and prosperity returned. The economic conditions improved, also trade increased, unemployment was falling, and bread was cheaper. Since of this better form of the country, there was less discontent and social unrest. Besides the Government was less threatened by protests and radical politics, because, by now the harsh policies were relaxed, as well as people. Also new progressive members were put in place who were Liberal Tories, including Peel, Canning, Robinson, and Huskisson.
Waterways were also a way for transportation, to cut out a lot of land, and cut out time. Waterways are a faster way for trade and barter. Steam boats were what pioneers used to travel down the waterways to trade and sell goods. Railroads were still used for closer travel, with items that did not need to get there as fast as possible, because railroad cars do not move very fast, although the steam engine improved the speed of transportation also. The United States did make rather large changes over 100 years, from 1776 to 1870.
America Transformed Timeline and Paper HIS/110 January 31, 2011 America Transformed Timeline and Paper The industrialization of America contributed to the economic development of the country in many, many ways. Firstly, we need to define industrialization, which usually refers to a change from home and hand production to machine and factory production. The invention of water-powered spinning and weaving machines greatly increased production of material. The cotton gin, which was invented by Eli Whitney in 1794, greatly increased the cultivation of cotton in the south. When steam power replaced water power, industries and factories arose, creating industrialized areas which attracted more and more people with the promise of paying jobs.
They produced many new jobs with the need for new roads since the American landscape was drastically expanding. Advertisements not only made businesses prosper but gave people actual helpful information, such as the idea of keeping a much better personal hygiene being better for your health. Alternating electrical current increased energy efficiency tenfold compared to direct current since people could actually turn off their electricity. However, the Installment Plan created a country-wide idea that you could now buy what you really can’t afford and that made a lot of debt which eventually made the stock market crash leading to the Great Depression. Although there was a blotch on the great economic image of the twenties, the bigger smudge was on the cultural rifts that
For example, the first cars were so expensive that only rich people could afford to buy them but cars became cheaper when Ford invented the moving assembly line and the work went faster. But there were also some bad effects of the advanced technology in the factory. The industrial workers became mere wage earners as the machinery was too expensive. Some worker had to face unemployment as the machines made the work faster than before and it required fewer workers at some point. This system made the working condition dangerous as many industrial workers face the possibility of fatal
