Economics and Industry


The growth of industry brought about changes in society and the growth of industry. Before the Industrial Revolution wealthy landowners controlled most of the wealth & power in society but afterwards power and wealth became centered in industrialists, financiers, and bankers. These entrepreneurs would pool their money to create large corporations which created large industries. We will examine some of these industrialists like Andrew Carnegie in a short powerpoint.
