1 The Industrial Revolution

2 That Nation of Shopkeepers! -- Napoleon Bonaparte
Industrial England: "Workshop of the World" That Nation of Shopkeepers! Napoleon Bonaparte

3 Late 18c: French Economic Advantages
Napoleonic Code= uniform laws French communal law. Free contracts Open markets Uniform & clear commercial regulations Standards weights & measures. Established technical schools. The government encouraged & inventors & inventions. Bank of France  European model providing a reliable currency.

4 French Economic Disadvantages
Years of war Seven Years/French & Indian War Supported the American Revolution. French Revolution. Early 19c  Napoleonic Wars Revolutions of 1830s & 1848 Heavy debts. High unemployment  soldiers returning from the battlefronts. French businessmen were afraid to take risks.

5 Ch 9 Section 1 HO Why Did Industrialization Begin in England First?

6 Agricultural Revolution
1700: Wealthy Farmers began to buy up small plots making LARGE FARMS Large landowners dramatically improved farming method out of necessity to make these large farmer profitable Wealthy Land Owners used ENCLOSURES ENLCOSED their land with fences or hedges to protect their larger growing fields. Disallowing other to use the land for grazing Experimented 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 1701 Forced small farmers to become tenant farmers or pushed them out of farming & into the cities Farming Innovation Seed drill- more germination for less Money Crop Rotation- better & bigger crops Livestock – better & bigger livestock Robert Bakewell increased yield thru selective breeding Increasing size and health of the livestock

7 The Enclosure Movement

8 “Enclosed” Lands Today

9 What is Necessary for an Industrial Revolution to Occur?
Factors of Production Natural Resources Land, Labor, Ore, Coal, Waterways, Rivers, Canals, etc. Labor- population increased dramatically due to the Agricultural Revolution Capital: (Extra Money to invest) Machinery factories Market people with $$$ to buy goods & services produced)

10 Metals, Woolens, & Canals

11 Britain’s Earliest Transportation Infrastructure
Early Canals Britain’s Earliest Transportation Infrastructure

12 Coalfields & Industrial Areas

13 Coal Mining in Britain: 1800-1914
1 ton of coal 50, 000 miners 1850 30 tons 200, 000 miners 1880 300 million tons 500, 000 miners 1914 250 million tons 1, 200, 000 miners

14 British Pig Iron Production

15 Mine & Forge [1840-1880] More powerful than water is coal.
More powerful than wood is iron. Innovations make steel feasible. “Puddling” [1820] – “pig iron.” “Hot blast” [1829] – cheaper, purer steel. Bessemer process [1856] – strong, flexible steel.

16 Britain’s Advantages Large Population to work due to the Agricultural Revolution= Large excess labor force Abundant Natural Resources Water power, rivers, harbors: transportation to & from factories & source of resources coal, iron ore: to build machines & tools Highly developed banking system Provided investment Capital – loan for machines Expanding Economy = Capital People could invest in manufacturing Growing overseas trade Mercantilism & colonialism= markets & resources Political stability No wars on British soil Parliament passed laws protecting businesses (mercantilism) Military and Political Success Positive attitude in Britain & a general “climate of Prosperity

17 Industrial Revolution
New Inventions of the Industrial Revolution

18 John Kay’s “Flying Shuttle”
1733- Doubled the work a weaver could do

19 Inventions & New Technology
Spinning Wheel- James Hargreaves 1764 1 spinner could work 8 threads 1764, then 25 then 50, etc. Water Frame- Richard Arkwright 1769 Spinning Mule- Samuel Crompton 1779 combo spinning Jenny & Water frame Power Loom- Edmund Cartwright sped up weaving & used water power Steam Engine- James Watt 1765 Faster more efficient (burned less fuel) Transportation Improvements = decrease cost of production Robert Fulton: steamboat 1807 Canals system John Mc Adam: layered stone roads=drainage Trevithick & Stephenson: locomotive Improved all kinds of transportation and machines

20 Power Loom: Edmund Cartwright
Sped up weaving!

21 Richard Arkwright: The “Water Frame”
Used water power from steam engines to drive spinning wheels

22 The Power Loom

23 James Watt’s Steam Engine
Faster more efficient…. Burned LESS fuel

24 Steam Tractor Improved farming capacity

25 Steam Ship Allowed travel UP and DOWN a water way regardless of water or air current… DECREASING THE COST OF PRODUCTION

26 An Early Steam Locomotive
Improved overland transport… Factories No longer need to be near water

27 The Impact of the Railroad

28 Industrial Revolution
Social & Economic Changes of the Industrial Revolution

29 Richard Arkwright: “Pioneer of the Factory System”
The “Water Frame”

30 Factory Production Concentrates 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
1813 2400 looms 150, 000 workers 1833 85, 000 looms 200, 000 workers 1850 224, 000 looms >1 million workers

32 Factory Workers Factory owners wanted to keep
their machines running for as many hours 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.

34 Textile Factory Workers in England

35 Young “Bobbin-Doffers”

36 Child Labor in the Mines
Child “hurriers” Average life expectancy of mine workers : 8yrs old

37 Young Coal Miners Most dangerous job!

38 Children Children as young as 6 began to work in factories with their families for long hours under brutal conditions Children as young as 5 worked in the coal mines Many children died or were injured working in the factories & mines Child labor laws later brought some reforms.

39 Education: a LONG RUN effect
Educational opportunities expanded In 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 Life Thrived on the Luxuries of the Industrial Revolution

43 Lower Middle Class factory overseer & skilled worker
Enjoyed a comfortable standard of living Experienced a rise in social status.

44 Wealthy Merchants, Factory Owners, Shippers
Benefited Greatly from the Industrial Revolution gained tremendous wealth & status in society joined a growing middle class of skilled workers, professionals, business people, & well-to-do farmers.

45 19c Bourgeoisie: The Industrial Nouveau Riche

46 Criticism of the New Bourgeoisie

47 Stereotype of the Factory Owner

48 “Upstairs”/“Downstairs” Life

49 Large landowners & Aristocrats
Because some factory owners, merchants, & investment bankers grew wealthier, the landowners & noble aristocracy lost some status, respect, and power but continued to look down on those who gained wealth in business. They called them the “nouveau riche”

50 The "Have-Nots": The Poor, The Over-Worked, & the Destitute

51 Factory Wages in Lancashire, 1830
Age of Worker Male Wages Female Wages under 11 2s 3d. 2s. 4d. 4s. 1d. 4s. 3d. 10s. 2d. 7s. 3d. 17s. 2d. 8s. 5d. 20s. 4d. 8s. 7d. 22s. 8d. 8s. 9d. 21s. 7d. 9s. 8d. 20s. 3d. 9s. 3d. 16s. 7d. 8s. 10d. 16s. 4d. 8s. 4d. 13s. 6d. 6s. 4d.

52 Working Poor Saw little improvement in their living & working conditions Some lost their jobs to machines Paid low wages Worked long hours Poor working conditions Lived in unsanitary & overcrowded environments at home

53 Environmental IMPACT:
Pollution Resource Depletion Animal extinction

54 The Environment: Problems of Pollution
The Silent Highwayman

55 “The Great Land Serpent”

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 cities Causing: overcrowding, unsanitary conditions, food shortages, disease, etc

57 Industrial Staffordshire: Problems of housing & pollution

58 The New Industrial City

59 Early-19c London Problems with Overcrowding

60 Worker Housing in Manchester

61 Factory Workers at Home

62 Workers Housing in Newcastle

63 Life of the New Urban Poor:
A Dickens Nightmare!

64 Problems with EXTREME Poverty Private Charities: Soup Kitchens

65 Private Charities: The “Lady Bountifuls”

66 Industrialization Spreads

WAR !! Especially French Revolution & Napoleonic Wars Political disunity in Germany Geographic Problems (waterways, land transportation) Social structure (Monarchy/Aristocracy)

68 Industrialization Spreads
By 1850: Zones of Industrialization on the European Continent Northeast France. Belgium. The Netherlands. Western German states. Northern Italy East Germany  Saxony

69 Industrialization By 1850

70 Railroads on the Continent

71 Share in World Manufacturing Output: 1750-1900

72 Industrialization Spreads to the United States
KEY Points: US government encouraged industrial growth with business friendly laws British machinery spawns an American textile industry RR help American industry expand Rapidly Immigration 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 progress government need not interfere in the economy. (eg. Laissez faire) Invisible hand Capitalism = economic system in which money is invested in business ventures with the goal of making a PROFIT Wrote “Wealth of Nations” in 1776

75 Thomas Malthus: economist
Supported Adam Smith’s ideas Contributed to the foundation of CAPITALISM Wrote: Essay on the Principles of Population 1798 Population 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 broker Support of Adam Smith’s Ideas Took Malthus’ theory one step further when he wrote, Principles of Political Economy & Taxation [1817]) 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 lives Benthem: English Philosopher coined “Utilitarianism” 1700s Wrote that people should judge the value of things based on their “utility” or usefulness Mill: economist & philosopher lead the Utilitarian movement in 1800s Pushed for more equal division of profits with workers Favored cooperative farming, women’s rights & suffrage Utilitarians also support reforms for education, legal & prison systems

78 Jeremy Bentham

79 Utopians Robert Owen: British Factory owner
Improved working conditions for his workers Built factory housing with low rent Stopped child labor under 10 Provided free schooling 1824: 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 Socialism Charles Fourier & Saint-Simon, French reformers wanted to offset the effects of industrialization with a new kind of economic system : SOCIALISM Factors of production are owned by the public & operated for the welfare of ALL Argued that the govt should actively plan the economy rather than depending on Free-Market Capitalism’s invisible hand Wanted govt controlled factories/mines/RR etc. in order to end poverty & promote equality Private 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 MARXISM Argued that society has ALWAYS been “haves & have nots” “Have Nots” are called PROLETARIATES Industrial Revolution just made this WORSE Predicted 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 property Communal ownership of the means of production All 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].

83 Protests & Reformers

84 The Luddites: 1811-1816 Attacks on the “frames” [power looms].
Ned Ludd [a mythical figure supposed to live in Sherwood Forest]

85 The Luddite Triangle

86 The Luddites

87 Peterloo Massacre, 1819 British Soldiers Fire on British Workers: “Let us die like men, and not be sold like slaves!” 18 people, including a woman and a child, died from saber cuts and trampling. Over 700 men, women and children injured. All in the name of liberty & freedom from poverty. The Massacre occurred during a period of immense political tension & mass protests. Fewer than 2% of the population had the vote, and hunger was rife with the disastrous corn laws making bread unaffordable.

88 The “Peoples’ Charter”
Drafted in 1838 by William Lovett. Radical campaign for Parliamentary reform of the inequalities created by the Reform Bill of 1832. Votes for all men. Equal electoral districts. Abolition of the requirement that Members of Parliament [MPs] be property owners. Salaries for Members of Parliament. Annual general elections. The secret ballot.

89 Anti-Corn Law League, 1845 Give manufactures more outlets for their products. More people to sell to Expand employment. Lower the price of bread. Make British agriculture more efficient & productive. Expose trade & agriculture to foreign competition. Promote international peace through trade contact.

90 Union Movement By the 1800s workers were becoming more active in politics. To press for change they joined together in voluntary association called UNIONS Unions: spoke for the workers as a group Used Collective Bargaining (negotiation) to push for better wages & working conditions Used strikes (work stoppage) to apply pressure In GENERAL, govts resisted unions & unionization But over time they did make gains and reforms

91 British Government's Response
to the Problems Created by Industrialization

92 Government Response Abolition of slavery in the colonies in 1832 [to raise wages in Britain]. Sadler Commission to look into working conditions Factory Act [1833] – child labor. New Poor Law [1834] – indoor relief. Poor houses. Reform Bill [1832] – broadens the vote for the cities.
