Today, I need you to become familiar with the basic elements of the Industrial Revolution. On Monday, we will attempt to create a plan that will help countries on the verge of industrialization learn from England’s successes and failures during the Industrial Revolution; thus, I need you to complete today’s work to the best of your ability.

Please read pages 245 to 249. Using the note-taking method of your choice, please explain:

  • The Wealth of Nations
  • “workshop of the world
  • “spontaneous combustion”
  • moral economy
  • the importance of financial institutions like the Bank of England
  • multiplier effect
  • how technology changed the textile/cotton industry
