The Industrial Revolution Y O U H A D A G O O D R U N, E N V I R O N M E N T. SOR RY AB O UT AL L T H E C OA L. Overview Credit & Banking Expand Dramatic Improvements in Transport Rail Steamships Roads Rising Agricultural

Productivity Rapid Urbanization Increased Demand for Manufactured Goods Mechanized, Factory Production Rural Production Down, Marginalization of Artisans Appalling Urban Conditions Lurid Accounts Calls for State-Sponsored

Reform Skilled Workers Protest Harsh Conditions Prolitarianization Socialism Background to Transformation Intensification of existing forms of production Traditional organization Major changes only in mid-19th century Demographic explosion Disease and famine Cholera Potato famine (1840s) Tuberculosis

Why Declining Death Rate? Smallpox vaccinations Greater attention to hygiene Cleaner water Sand filters, iron pipes, reservoirs Increased life expectancy among all classes Lower infant mortality Safer water supply Better waste disposal Decline of wet nursing Fresh/sterilized milk Declining birth rates Period of relative peace Expanding Agricultural Base Sustained population growth Market-oriented farming supports accumulation of capital More land under cultivation

Yields increase: England 3x grain Less fallow land Fertilizers and intensive techniques Continent- Not as much consolidation France: N=Rotation, larger plots; S=Small division-wine Germany: Production 2x population growth Balkans and Russia Subsistence farming Serfdom cripples growth Trains 1820: First to haul coal

in N. England 1830: Passenger train between Liverpool and Manchester Expansion 100 miles of rail in 1832; 6600 in 1852 200,000 employed; Landscape transformed Catalyst for investment Middle class investors Spurs metallurgy

Revolutionary effects Shipping costs reduced by 2/3rds Increased consumption, production Fresh milk, frozen meat Displaced population State role Ties places, people together

France=Semi-public Austria, Belgium= state control Mail Travel Speeds up time Environmental costs Steamships and Roads 1816: Liverpool to Boston in 17 days (1/2 time) 1830s-40s: River travel Canals Improved roads Society in the Industrial Revolution

CHANGES AND CHALLENGES Continuities on the Land Agricultural improvements, end of serfdom lead to movement to cities Unrest against landowners in 1830s and 1840s Rural poverty severe Share tiny homes with animals Often windowless Serfdom exists in Austria until 1848, Russia until 1861 Diets extremely poor

Rye bread, porridge, potatoes (north); cabbage (central and east), onions and garlic (France) Wine in south; beer or cider in north Emigration to North America in 1830s-40s Irish (Potato famine) German states Urbanization By 1850: Britain, population urbanized France, only 1/4 live in towns larger than 2,000 London grows from 900,ooo to 2,300,000 Paris 550,000 to 1,000,000 Farther east, towns fewer and smaller Problems with sewage, housing, pollution, crime (6x) Better transportation=suburbs

Middle classes withdraw into elite districts or, in England, to posh suburbs Increased social segregation; visibility of differences in classes Cities populated by migrants from the country Women in the Workforce Domestic service: 40% of women in workforce Higher literacy Better social mobility Country women:

Spinning, weaving (cottage industry) Work in fields Urban women: Laundresses Seamstresses Street merchants Prostitutes Industry: Work in factories, especially textiles

Relatively small part of workforce Male workers resent Low-skilled labor = low pay Women and Families Working women=Less dependent on parents Marry earlier Marriage still economic relationship Increase in out-of-wedlock births Factories = Separation of home and work Many mothers leave to care for children Prostitution

Governments register, regulate Middle-class sees as moral failure Movement toward men working, women remaining home Child Labor Children always worked in agriculture Small size, cheapness=highly employable 1830s: 1/3 of workforce Sometimes entire families in factories Fathers supervise Work often dangerous Child labor laws Britain in 1832

France in 1841 Laboring Poor Industrialization increases employment High wages for male skilled workers Cheaper goods=Higher incomes British workers better off than others Paternalism Poor Laws

Poor working conditions Artisan incomes, employment fall Gap between rich and poor increases Housing miserable Class consciousness proletarianization Artisans first to demonstrate Over-supply

Luddites Chartism Wm. Lovett founds London Workingmens Association Great Charter Democratization Universal Male Suffrage Annual Elections Secret Ballots Equal electoral districts Object to monopoly of wealth and political influences

Divided between peaceful moral force and violent physical force groups 1839: Parliament rejects Chartist petition (1.3 mil) 1842: Parliament rejects another signed by 3.3 mil. Stop Economics of the Early 19th Century L I B E R A L I S M V. S O C I A L I S M : T H E E T E R N A L B AT T L E B E G I N S Classical Liberalism Begins with on Adam Smith, Wealth of Nations

Rational self-interest leads to best economic outcomes Liberalism based on individualism and individual freedom Favor economic growth through free enterprise Laissez-faire: Government/other intervention usually interferes with the proper functioning of the economy, leading to poor outcomes Market solutions are usually the best solutions

Recognize role for government in defense, preserving property rights, enforcing contracts Key Classical Liberals Thomas Malthus (1766-1834) David Ricardo (1772-1823) Essay on the Principle Principals of Political of Population (1798) Population will outstrip food supply

Geometric v. arithmetic Late marriage, chastity only way to slow Failed to recognize technological development Economy (1817) Comparative Advantage Proves that free trade always benefits both parties Iron Law of Wages Wages will always return to

projects interferes with liberal economic growth Zollverein (1834) Liberalized trade among all major German states outside of Austria Liberal Economics in Britain Jeremy Bentham (1748-1832) Utilitarianism: All human activity should be based on the amount of happiness it provides Believed in government intervene on behalf the disadvantaged Governments can provide most happiness by providing most

freedom Two major steps: Poor Law (1834): Workhouses Repeal of the Corn Laws (1846) Landed interests fight Lower food prices = Higher wages Lower tariffs = Lower prices for British goods = Higher exports Socialism Socialists call for fundamental change in property ownership

Urge end to private ownership of means of production. Perhaps distribution = state/corporate ownership. State ownership = Serve interests of all people People can learn to be cooperative, not competitive Utopian Socialists Robert Owen (1771-1858) New Lanark, Scotland (New Harmony, IN)

Experimental Factories Good surroundings=Improved character Provided good quarters, recreation, education Most important, provides incentives Higher profits Claude Henri de Saint-Simon (1760-1825) Focus of government should be on economic issues Technocracy directed economy Charles Fourier (1772-1837) Urged self-sufficient socialist phalanx communities Individuals will do work they most enjoy and frequent job changes Fails Anarchism:

Also seeks end of private property and capitalism Also seeks destruction of the state itself Marxism Karl Marx (1818-1883) Radical German philosopher, journalist Moves to Paris in 1844, collaborates with Friedrich Engels (1820-1895) Engels had lived in Manchester (Conditions of the Working Class in England (1845) Communist Manifesto (1848) scientific socialismtheory of revolutionary change Based on Hegelian historical dialectic

Materialism and determinism Class struggle: Feudal to bourgeois to proletariat to dictatorship of the proletariat to the end of all classes Reorganize society, state control of means of production and distribution 1848 T H E Y E A R O F R E V O LU T I O N S Background to Revolution 1837: Recession, wide-spread unemployment 1840s: The Hungry Forties Revolution urban, middle-class, and liberal Why France?
