America History

America’s Industrial Revolution transformed all sectors of the economy and changed society. Some of the business practices of the late 1800s and early 1900s are described. There are pros and cons to these developments. On one hand, they streamlined costs and made goods and new products available to many more consumers. But, there were also consequences—some unintended.


Choose one of these two new problems introduced by the American Industrial Revolution.


  1. The development of monopolies instead of a competitive business market.
  2. Unsafe and oppressive work conditions.


Then, in a full paragraph or two:


  • Identify your chosen problem.
  • Discuss a specific example from that period that clearly illustrates the chosen problem and a negative consequence of it. What did the government do about this—and what should it have done?
  • Identify a similar problem or example that exists in the USA today.
  • Identify the source(s) where you read about the problem.

Using 300-350 words, write a brief discussion, in your own words of how the article relates to the selected chapter Key Term.

Each student will select one of the key terms presented in the module and conduct a search  find 1 recent peer-reviewed academic journal article (within the past 3 years) that closely relate to the concept. Your submission must include the following information in the following format:


DEFINITION: a brief definition of the key term followed by the APA reference for the term; this does not count in the word requirement.


SUMMARY: Summarize the article in your own words- this should be in the 150-200 word range. Be sure to note the article’s author, note their credentials and why we should put any weight behind his/her opinions, research or findings regarding the key term.


DISCUSSION: Using 300-350 words, write a brief discussion, in your own words of how the article relates to the selected chapter Key Term. A discussion is not rehashing what was already stated in the article, but the opportunity for you to add value by sharing your experiences, thoughts and opinions. This is the most important part of the assignment.


REFERENCES: All references must be listed at the bottom of the submission–in APA format.


Be sure to use the headers in your submission to ensure that all aspects of the assignment are completed as required.
