The era known as the Industrial Revolution and the changes that occurred during this period, were from 1760 to 1850. While the first industrial revolution was centered on iron, steam technologies and textile production, the second industrial revolution called “The Age of Synergy” in which most of the great innovations were developed, happened during the period of 1867 to 1914. It revolved around steel, railroads, electricity, and chemicals. We are, in all probability, in a repetitive cycle of such motions. It doesn’t happen in one day, one year or even ten years. It just doesn’t happen overnight. The first industrial revolution lasted for about 90 years.
