IndustrialisationIndustrialisation or industrial revolution is a process of social and economic change whereby a human society is tranformed from a pre-industrial to an industrial state. The social and economic change is closely intertwined with technological innovation, and is also related to some form of philosophical change, or to a different attitude in the perception of nature.
Pre-industrial economies are those that rely on sustenance standards of living whereby the population focuses collective resources on producing only what can be consumed by the population.
