industrialization and the Fed/Anti-Feds
Hello there! I have two ideas that I am having trouble understanding. feel free to add to on!
A) Following the American industrial revolution and the rise of the market economy the lives of workers and families changed.
-How exactly did the lives of working class and middle class families and workers change? What made their lives so different?
-I'm trying to take in account who worked, the types of work they did, and how work changed family structures.
what I have understand is industrialization gave rise to technology, market, and transportation that allowed America to transition into a full blown nation of commerce while stepping away from agriculture.
Middle class: As a result, this gave jobs in the city (white collar jobs) and allowed the middle-class man to earn income for his family, eliminating the need for woman to work. Women would be expected to stay home and raise kids, essentially being a housewife. Families became consumers and bought luxuries to show the status of their wealth/homes (consumerism)
working class: women had, in a sense, more rights and freedom because they were working alongside their husbands to earn money and gave contribution. working class children also had more freedom because they contributed to making money in the family and were much more independent.
B) The contest over the shape the country would take following the writing of the Constitution was fought by Federalists and Anti-Federalists. Using the ideologies of Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson describe the country these two sides hoped to¬ build. Looking at aspects such as: their economic approach, position on the national bank, approach to military, views on the French Revolution, how they sought to fund the government, who they believed should control the government; elites or common men, where they believed liberty was derived, how they thought the government should spend, power of the presidency.
