Alex Fong Geography - Assignment #7 1. In the eighteenth century, Western Europe began to industrialize rapidly. Yet, industrialization did not affect all of Europe at the same time. It began first in England during the mid-eighteenth century. The rapid industrialization caused changes both economically and socially. A massive growth in the population suddenly occurred, more obvious than ever. Though it would be unfair to say for certain, it is most likely that the massive growth in population had to do with the decline of diseases around the time period of the mid-eighteenth century to the late-eighteenth century. Since fewer diseases were spotted, less of the population was affected by such things, leading to fewer deaths, which meant that more of the population survived as they continued to reproduce. The inflation may not have necessarily been bad, but at the same time, it was because it led to a lack of employment opportunities for everyone in the community. However, with the larger population, more skills, trades, and goods were discovered, leading to a rapid rise within the population’s economy as well. 2.
