The groundwork for the industrialization and rapid postwar economic growth of America was laid by civil war, stimulated by state initiatives such as the transcontinental railroad. The South, devastated by war the south shared very little in the economic growth of the United States until World War II. It also brought changes to the economy and society. For instance urbanization mainly because of capitalism, immigration, rises of huge prosperous businesses through trusts, emergence of new technology (Gallagher, 2003).
Farmers: Farmers suffered losses; as a result, of industrialization. Agriculture, like other industries, were becoming merchandised and commercial and, as a result, fewer farmers were needed (Gallagher, 2003).
Native Americans: They were all affected by migration incentives. With the construction of Railway forth came the transformation of the west and downfall of the frontier. Eventually the Native American tribes were involuntary forced to relocate.
Immigrants: Industrialization gave the sense of the idea that one nation was better than another nation. United State started laying down immigration laws; as a result, of increased immigration. Examples of immigrants were Chinese and European (Gallagher, 2003).
Middle and lower class group of workers: The rise of specialized jobs came with invention and production of factory machines. This took jobs of thousands of factory workers across the country (Gallagher, 2003).
Development of new products: Both the inventors and business leaders created and sold a variety of new products such as petrol engine car, record player, barbed wire, typewriter among other products (Barden, 2011).
Distribution and communication: The American railway system in late 1800’s became a nationwide transportation network which made business operations for average working class more efficient (Cobb, 2004).

le transportation (Black 3). However, after viewing the two films, Who Killed the Electric Car (2006) and Fuel (2008), renamed from its original Sundance Festival release title, Fields of Fuel, it becomes clearer that achieving a compromising agreement among major and minor stakeholders in the transportation industry will be much harder to create, since there will be an expected emergence of various conflicts within and among these players in the industry.
While this staggering amount of trade seems encouraging, the maritime transportation industry can be said to at its sunset due to the reasons that will be discussed in this paper.
The maritime industry was the most favored method since ancient times because travel by sea avoids the rather circuitous routes encountered when using the land.
From this natural state, it is evident that a person cannot get all his needs from one geographical area; thus, he needs to move from one area to another with the aim for fulfilling his needs. In the past, the main forms of transport included human and animal.
Overall, demand (measured in passenger-kilometre and tonne-kilometre) has grown at an annual rate of nearly 8% since 1950. Demand for road transport has grown at an annual rate of about 7.6% while rail transport demand has grown by about 2%, demand for water transport by 5% and air by over 16% per year.
Thus an industry connected with maritime transportation remains a global economic pivot. Economics, like other social life, does not conform to a simple and coherent pattern(Galbraith 1958)2. However, a striking pattern of the maritime transportation industry has been its cyclical nature of highs and lows which during times of lows appear to many as a industry in recession or some would call a 'sunset' industry.
Hence supply of energy is way too less than the demand for it. The only result is the mammoth hike in energy prices. If this situation extends, people in America would have to stop engaging in anything that requires energy and, for them that would mean to stop living!
At international level, transportation capabilities have emerged as more strategic issues because they have a major role to play in determining the success of the international supply chain structure and global integration practice. The technology
This is so because drivers can easily control their vehicles at lower than at higher speed. On the contrary, use of speed limits tend to make drivers more relaxed since they have a feeling that they at lower speed limits
point of view it has been noted that sustainable transport needs to have the following characteristics: a) the volume of renewable resources used for supporting a specific transport means should be such so that the adequacy of these resources is not threatened; the adequacy of
