Industrialization had some positive effects and some negatives. Businesses all over America grew into industries that could produce much more American-made products and distribute them more easily. The economy got better and America became an exporter as well as an importer. The only bad thing about it was the negatives of large factories, such as an increase in demand in the slave trade and more pollution in the environment.
