The Industrial Revolution
It would be difficult to imagine the modern world as we know it today without taking into consideration the shifts in attitude and the use of resources that arose from the Industrial Revolution. Without, for example, the evolution of mass production of goods would the fast-paced atmosphere of computers and technology manufacturing have existed, or at least not in the way it functions now. This revolutionary movement, beginning in the 18th century Western world, put emphasis on urban living and factory work and effectively replaced the skilled craftsmen who once were at the helm of goods production.
