1) Facotry – supervision of a number of workers collected under one roof. “factory discipline” – a group of people are gathered together and their work is directed by a manager. 2) In the prewar period, the factory is fairly unusual. Most work is still organiuzed under various forms. But whereas the factory is virtually 1810, there were a large number of factories in 1860. In 1800, the vast bulk is househo9ld and craft output. 3) If oyu think about the rise of te factory, it will bump out other forms of competition that use other forms of organization, like household organization. In 1840, it’s about $1.70 per person. During 1860, household organization is down to about $0.80 per capita. It’s down by roughly a half. This is also reflected in inputs to manufacturing. The comng of the factory is selective, for example household linen and flax production were wiped out. Craft shops were also badly hurt, but in others, not much. In some branches, work dind’t lend itself to cost production in factories. This is especially true in parts made to order. Factories don’t just spring up like mushrooms all over the counties. Certain branches of things see the cmoning of the factory. 4) Factory oranizxation is distinct from mechanization. 5) Cotton is vastly changed by facotory. Lumber, not so much. The number one industries by employment is food. 6)
