Lastly, Great Britain's colonial empire created a ready supply of consumers to purchase its manufactured goods. Ramlal History 1000C 21 October 2012 The First Industrial Revolution With the production of new machines that replaced wind and water with coal and steam, Industrialization required a different way to organize the way work was being done. Especially potato, because of its high calorific value helped a lot in curbing hunger. Raw materials were purchased at low prices from the colonies, made into manufactured goods in England, and sold back to the colonies at high prices. The cessation of naval voyages is an example of this hindering state intervention.
So, England industrialized and Holland did not. Technological, socioeconomic and cultural features are the main features that changed and developed in the Industrial Revolution. China owned a highly productive agriculture based on rice which yielded a surplus, and allowed the Chinese to trade extensively domestically and internationally. I can't help wondering if I went into 0:53:33 0:53:37 there, whether I'd have any more hair left or any more hair growing! Between 1860 and 1890, coal production grew by 1,200 percent to over 6. This way they were able to steadily grow at a faster rate, because of having invented Spinning Jenny and Water Frame. One is that Great Britain had great sources of coal and iron whichwere needed for industrialization. While Britain was establishing its industrial leadership, France was immersed in its , and the uncertain political situation discouraged large investments in industrial.
As well as improving agriculturally, Britain experienced a rapid population growth that provided a pool of surplus labor for the new factories of the emerging industry. This meant that factories no longer needed to be located next to sources of water. The industrial revolution helped bring work to the poor and help grasp the idea of mass production, but it also weakened the quality of the workforce. The ocean helped in varies openings to a world of an endless opportunity both in economic and political sectors. As these advances improved the productivity of farmers and their land more people were able to work in industry and science. Because of the large land plots, machines were experimented with, and efficient machines for farming were created.
And too joined the Industrial Revolution with striking success. Historians attribute this to a convergence of several factors, and nobody can agree on which one is the most influential one. First, the Agricultural Revolution of the 18th century created a favorable climate for industrialization. This was the Industrial Revolution, which began in Britain around the mid eighteen hundreds and started to influence the rest of Europe and then the world. The Industrial Revolution was a period of great innovation and movement that affected the whole world; in one way or another.
New in … ventions were being made eg; motor cars, bicycles, steam engine, water frame etc. More people were in a position to sell a surplus of the goods they produced to an increasingly expanding market. The Industrial Revolution increased the overall amount of wealth and distributed it more widely than had been the case in earlier centuries, helping to enlarge the middle class. This led to an increase in the size of the British population and, consequently, the labour force. This increased their capital, money which could be invested later. The Malthusian argument never proved correct where rice was concerned. Can you see there's a perforated 0:20:39 0:20:42 -layer in there? And since they had a large supply of this, England soon began to.
Also the country's small size and the fact that it was an island encouraged the development of a nation wide domestic Market that could respond to increasing demand. Furthermore, the favourable agricultural conditions and fertile soil allowed Europe, especially Western Europe, to keep enough land spare to use to graze animals, something never really achieved in China. Again, Britain was more using and dependent on it than France. England had a relatively high population compared say to the Nordic countries 3. Once it started it easy spread. The Industrial Revolution began in England for many reasons. This was just one way that helped the Industrial Revolution begin in England.
Indeed, the lead of Japan over the rest of Asia was even more spectacular than the lead of Britain over the rest of Europe. Britain's merchant marine could transport goods to foreign markets. Efficient transportation was already set up in Britain and it was further innovated with the demand between producers and suppliers. Manufacturing created new jobs but also contributed to the pollution and overcrowding in cities where factories were located. During the 1970's and 08's the use of chemicals to kill weeds allowed for a new type of agriculture called no-till. The scientific revolution in England prepared the way for new inventions to be applied to industry.
Coal was used to power steam engines. There are several factors for why the Industrial Revolution began in Great Britain. Easily accessible coal, it turns out. It is argued that Britain had a climatic advantage over China due to its mild weather and constant rainfall. England had an abundance of cotton, used in the making of textiles.
