Industrial Development By: Adam Young Hr:2

Thesis Statement

Before we had machines and other amazing inventions that helped us in everyday life, we had to create our own inventions that could take hours to even days. But after the inventions of machines, we could produce products almost 10 times faster than humans could by hand. Industrial Development has brought us good and bad things to the world. It can do us good such as increase the production rate of objects and does not require as much work from humans making there jobs easier, but it as well has its bad traits such as disease and other infectious virus and diseases. But was it good for the United States during this time period? I believe that rapid industrial development was a blessing to the United state for the reasons of more job opportunities as well as more money for the economy and finally for the reason of transportation and new technology. I think these reasons help make America what it has been shaped into today.

Job Opportunities

More jobs helped advance the country and helped shaped it into what it is today. More recently opened jobs gave many opportunities to make money for Americans and other new coming immigrants. With factories being built and produced, many job opportunities came for people struggling to find ones. With more factories and more workers, the factory's boosted the United States economy and helped significantly with the economy. With the economy higher from jobs, the United States is able to build more factories and other businesses buildings which as well gave out more job opportunities for the people of America. On Britannica, I searched how more jobs affected America and it states that "After factories were built, America's economy boosted due to the production from factories as well as Americans be able to access jobs more easily that before factories were built. It also meant more job opportunities equals more money."

More Money in the Economy

The economy boosted significantly after industrial development began. With a boosted economy, the United States was able to build more factories and office buildings which gave more job opportunities to the American people. The higher economy also brought in immigrants who were seeking better lives in America because of how the high the economy was and they knew that they could take advantage of the opportunities that America gave them. The 19th century of America was a big step forward because with high demand of specific products, it gave large amounts of money towards the U.S economy and since factories were constantly being built, the U.S was able to keep up with incredibley high demand. I searched on and I found an article that explained America's economic success and it said that "with a boasted economy, more factories were built to satisfy the the high product demand of the people." It also talks about the large amount of job opportunities that were avlible to the American people which would as well boast the economy over time.


With high demand of products, the factory owners struggle to keep up with the the demand and need new and advanced technology as well as transportation. To solve the transportation problems, railroads were installed and the products made by the company were able to arrive to their destinations much faster than before the railroad system was invented. The telegraph was also a very useful invention because it allowed people to communicate from long distance. The new divice made business much easier because with long distance communication they could talk to other business owners and work out deals with them or they could do many other things with the telegraph as well. On, I found an article stating "with the telegraph as a recent invention, business owners could communicate with there customers/clients which made they industrial business much easier for everyone".
