The United States industrial revolution created many favourable conditions in the United States. These conditions include introduction of new technologies, increase in labour, more resources, improved food production and rapid population growth amongst many others. This meant better technological developments, high levels of new labour forces and better farming and economic resources.
The United States of America not only enjoyed multiple advantages from the industrial revolution but also became a fertile ground for the same. Industrial evolution helped to improve economic growth, encouraged development and exploitation. In this case, the United States enjoyed economic growth, better internal markets and better transport services. Additionally, Industrial evolution in the United States introduced knowledgeable people and better machinery. This helped to lure and attract economic growth and industrial growth. In this case, advantages of the industrial revolution included attraction of knowledgeable, outgoing and ambitious persons from Britain and other countries in Europe. It is vital to note that land availability and labor literacy, climate diversity and a large amounts of easily accessible literate and upscale free market contributed to the rapid industrialization in the United States. Free market development, capital availability, rivers, waterways in the coastal regions, and plenty of natural resources greatly contributed to the rapid growth in industrialization.
In the years 1933’s to 1973’s, many industrial inventions were created. This led to higher workers demand and job opportunities. In the later years steam was discovered as a better source of power as compared to water. In this case, the steam engines helped to boost the industrial revolution in the United States. In the recent years, the technological development pace has immensely increased. This is because of the interactions at different levels of State including: the industrial manufacturers, research, and establishment of the military. Technological developments from the military are known as military industrial developments. This is because these developments emerged from military technological demands, military large-scale application, military concentration of funding, and military centralized control played a dominant role in driving technological innovation. Additionally, medicine, physics, chemistry, computing, aviation, material science, naval architecture, and meteorology technological developments can also be traced back to military operations from the historical periods labour.
It is vital to note that before the Industrial revolution in the United States, the nation depended mostly on the old-fashioned laborers, common technological base, and unskilled workers. After the industrial revolution, the workers were replaced by specialized engineers and workers. The specialized workers used equipments and machines to work more efficiently specialized labor helped to outpaced laborers supply. This included workers who were willing to low-paying, dead-end jobs, and work in dangerous. Literate labour was a very important part of the industrial revolution in the United States.
Resources were a very important component in the industrialization evolution. These resources included: better transport systems, coal and iron. The resources helped in enhancing capital investments from merchants, smooth supply of raw materials, smooth transition of finished goods and services.
Heritage from Britain
The United States enjoyed multiple advantages as a heritage from Britain. This helped the United States to greater Industrial revolution. In this case, Britain encouraged transport improvements in order to protect trade in the United States and to other countries. It is interesting to note that the industrial revolution unfolded more in the United States of America More than in Britain (Makyr 376).
The new industrial revolution in the United States has more advantages as compared to the old system. Some of the new industrial revolution included; machine innovations as opposed to and tools, use of steam as a source of power as opposed to human power and better factory system adaptation. As the years progressed the manufacturing processes increased productivity and machine efficiency. These factors helped to expand commerce and increase production in the United States.
