6 Agricultural Revolution 1700:Wealthy Farmers began to buy up small plots making LARGE FARMSLarge landowners dramatically improved farming method out of necessity to make these large farmer profitableWealthy Land Owners used ENCLOSURESENLCOSED their land with fences or hedges to protect their larger growing fields. Disallowing other to use the land for grazingExperimented to discover more productive farming methods to increase crop yields (new methods cost $$)Jethro Tull = discovered new way to sow seeds by inventing the SEED DRILL in 1701Forced small farmers to become tenant farmers or pushed them out of farming & into the citiesFarming InnovationSeed drill- more germination for less MoneyCrop Rotation- better & bigger cropsLivestock – better & bigger livestockRobert Bakewell increased yield thru selective breedingIncreasing size and health of the livestock
9 What is Necessary for an Industrial Revolution to Occur? Factors of ProductionNatural ResourcesLand, Labor, Ore, Coal, Waterways, Rivers, Canals, etc.Labor-population increased dramatically due to the Agricultural RevolutionCapital: (Extra Money to invest)MachineryfactoriesMarketpeople with $$$ to buy goods & services produced)
15 Mine & Forge [1840-1880] More powerful than water is coal. More powerful than wood is iron.Innovations make steel feasible.“Puddling”  – “pig iron.”“Hot blast”  – cheaper, purer steel.Bessemer process  – strong, flexible steel.
16 Britain’s AdvantagesLarge Population to work due to the Agricultural Revolution= Large excess labor forceAbundant Natural ResourcesWater power, rivers, harbors: transportation to & from factories & source of resourcescoal, iron ore: to build machines & toolsHighly developed banking systemProvided investment Capital – loan for machinesExpanding Economy = CapitalPeople could invest in manufacturingGrowing overseas tradeMercantilism & colonialism= markets & resourcesPolitical stabilityNo wars on British soilParliament passed laws protecting businesses (mercantilism)Military and Political SuccessPositive attitude in Britain & a general “climate of Prosperity

28 Industrial Revolution Social & EconomicChanges of theIndustrial Revolution
29 Richard Arkwright: “Pioneer of the Factory System” The “Water Frame”
30 Factory ProductionConcentrates production in one place [materials, labor].Located near sources of power [rather than labor or markets].Requires a lot of capital [extra money] investment [factory, machines, etc.] more than skilled labor.Only 10% of English industry in 1850.
31 Textile Factory Workers in England 18132400 looms150, 000 workers183385, 000 looms200, 000 workers1850224, 000 looms>1 million workers
32 Factory Workers Factory owners wanted to keep their machines running for as manyhours a day as possible SO….workers were forced to work long hours for starvation wages, often under dangerous & unhealthy conditions;LATER, working conditions & the standard of living would improve.
33 The Factory System Rigid schedule. 12-14 hour day. Dangerous & unhealthy conditions.Mind-numbing monotony.
38 ChildrenChildren as young as 6 began to work in factories with their families for long hours under brutal conditionsChildren as young as 5 worked in the coal minesMany children died or were injured working in the factories & minesChild labor laws later brought some reforms.
39 Education: a LONG RUN effect Educational opportunities expandedIn response to a need for skilled & professional workers.In response to a need for a place for children after child labor laws were imposed & a need to create skilled labor for the future
40 Life Changes during the Industrial Revolution ..\Ch 9 downloads\Living_History__Living_During_the_Industrial_Revolution.asf
42 Industrial Revolution The "Haves":Bourgeois LifeThrived on theLuxuries of theIndustrial Revolution
43 Lower Middle Class factory overseer & skilled worker Enjoyed a comfortable standard of livingExperienced a rise in social status.
44 Wealthy Merchants, Factory Owners, Shippers Benefited Greatly from the Industrial Revolutiongained tremendous wealth & status in societyjoined a growing middle class of skilled workers, professionals, business people, & well-to-do farmers.

50 The "Have-Nots":The Poor,The Over-Worked,& the Destitute
52 Working PoorSaw little improvement in their living & working conditionsSome lost their jobs to machinesPaid low wagesWorked long hoursPoor working conditionsLived in unsanitary & overcrowded environments at home
56 Industrial Problem of Urbanization Industrialization leads to Urbanization (people moving to the cities for work)Urbanization is usually so RAPID that the cities growth can not keep pace with the migration of people to the citiesCausing: overcrowding, unsanitary conditions, food shortages, disease, etc
57 Industrial Staffordshire: Problems of housing & pollution
67 OBSTACLES TO EUROPEAN INDUSTRIALIZATION WAR !! Especially French Revolution & Napoleonic WarsPolitical disunity in GermanyGeographic Problems (waterways, land transportation)Social structure (Monarchy/Aristocracy)
68 Industrialization Spreads By 1850: Zones of Industrialization on the European ContinentNortheast France.Belgium.The Netherlands.Western German states.Northern ItalyEast Germany Saxony
72 Industrialization Spreads to the United States KEY Points:US government encouraged industrial growth with business friendly lawsBritish machinery spawns an American textile industryRR help American industry expand RapidlyImmigration provided a supply of cheap labor
73 New Ways of Thinking Sparked by the Industrial Revolution
74 Adam Smith Scottish Economic Philosophe & Professor 1723-1790 Big IDEAS:Economic Freedom guaranteed economic progressgovernment need not interfere in the economy. (eg. Laissez faire)Invisible handCapitalism = economic system in which money is invested in business ventures with the goal of making a PROFITWrote “Wealth of Nations” in 1776
75 Thomas Malthus: economist Supported Adam Smith’s ideasContributed to the foundation of CAPITALISMWrote: Essay on the Principles of Population 1798Population growth will outpace the food supply.War, disease, or famine could control population.The poor should have less children.Food supply will then keep up with population.
76 David Ricardo: Economist & stock brokerSupport of Adam Smith’s IdeasTook Malthus’ theory one step further when he wrote, Principles of Political Economy & Taxation )Believed that a permanent underclass would always be poor“Iron Law of Wages.”When wages are high, workers have more children.More children create a large labor surplus that depresses wages.Thus a vicious cycle of Poverty is inevitable
77 The Utilitarians: Jeremy Bentham & John Stuart Mill The goal of society is the greatest good for the greatest number.One role of government is to intervene in business in order to provide some social safety net for workers.Believed that wealthy people or the govt must take actions to improve people’s livesBenthem: English Philosopher coined “Utilitarianism” 1700sWrote that people should judge the value of things based on their “utility” or usefulnessMill: economist & philosopher lead the Utilitarian movement in 1800sPushed for more equal division of profits with workersFavored cooperative farming, women’s rights & suffrageUtilitarians also support reforms for education, legal & prison systems
79 Utopians Robert Owen: British Factory owner Improved working conditions for his workersBuilt factory housing with low rentStopped child labor under 10Provided free schooling1824: he went to the US where he founded a cooperative community in New Harmony Indiana (lasted 3 years)He wanted to create a UTOPIA (perfect living place)
80 SocialismCharles Fourier & Saint-Simon, French reformers wanted to offset the effects of industrialization with a new kind of economic system :SOCIALISMFactors of production are owned by the public & operated for the welfare of ALLArgued that the govt should actively plan the economy rather than depending on Free-Market Capitalism’s invisible handWanted govt controlled factories/mines/RR etc. in order to end poverty & promote equalityPrivate ownership just put workers at the mercy of greedy employers (Capitalists)
81 Karl Marx: German journalist Wrote: The Communist Manifesto (1848)Introduced a form of RADICAL SOCIALISM called MARXISMArgued that society has ALWAYS been “haves & have nots”“Have Nots” are called PROLETARIATESIndustrial Revolution just made this WORSEPredicted a social class war in which the poor majority would rise up against rich minority destroying CAPALISM and implementing Communism or (complete socialism)“workers of the world, UNITE!”The RESULT: an END to private propertyCommunal ownership of the means of productionAll goods & services would be shared equally
82 The Socialists: Utopians & Marxists People as a society would operate & own the means of production [resources/land, labor, capital] NOT individuals.Goal: a society that benefited EVERYONE, not just a rich, well-connected few.Tried to build perfect communities [utopias].
