PowerPoint Presentation: Technology and Transportation We would still be behind in technology. It would take days and months to get from one place to another.
PowerPoint Presentation: Jobs Without factories, there would not be any jobs for the new workers. We would have a weak economy based on agriculture and the work of the lower class.
PowerPoint Presentation: Middle Class There would have been no middle class. Rich would have gotten richer and lower class more poor.
PowerPoint Presentation: Environmental Damage We would not have much air pollution. We would have clean water. Less global warming.
PowerPoint Presentation: Exploitation No child labor, no child abuse.
PowerPoint Presentation: Innovation There would have been no weapons’ innovation, and wars would have been less devastating. Mass production of weapons, vehicles, and ammunition resulted in a new form of warfare.
