The Lowell System or Waltham-Lowell System, named after Francis Cabot Lowell, was a paternalistic textile factory system of the early 19th century that employed mainly young women [age 15-35] from New England farms to increase efficiency, productivity and profits in ways different from other methods. Emphasis was placed on mechanization and standardization; the entire textile industry used this as a model, and machines using this system were sold to other mills. To successfully recruit female workers, it was in the best interest of the investors and managers to keep Lowell free of the filth, poverty, and social disorder prevalent in English factory towns. Lowell's textile workers were supervised on the job and at home with a formal set of rules and regulations.  The rules and regulations emphasized the maintenance of a proper environment: enforced curfews, encouraged church attendance, and maintained a high degree of cleanliness. Compared to many of the textile mills in England and France, Lowell's Mills were considered clean, and the workers lived and ate in well-kept company owned boardinghouses. Wages were good compared to the standards of the day.

Renowned for its coal and steel, Wallonia strong industrial growth since the Middle Ages heavy industry was the driving force behind the region's economy Wallonia was the birthplace of the industrial revolution on continental Europe Before railway construction on the Continent demanded huge quantities of malleable iron mainly for rails, for which low quality iron sufficed Wallonia was the only Continental region to follow the British model successfully Since the middle of the 1820s, numerous works comprising coke blast furnaces as well as puddling and rolling mills were built in the coal mining areas around Liège and Charleroi. Excelling all others, John Cockerill's factories at Seraing integrated all stages of production, from engineering to the supply of raw materials, as early in 1825
become the 2nd industrial power in the world after England. But it is also pointed out by many researchers
Demographic effects Wallonia was also the birthplace of a strong Socialist party and strong trade-unions in a particular sociological landscape.
Industrialization began in the region with the establishment of several iron works in the late 18th century within the borders of the present-day city of Oberhausen. locks built at Mülheim on the Ruhr allowed the expansion of coal mining further up the river and led to the expansion of Mülheim as a port By 1850, almost 300 coal mines were in operation in the region. The coal was processed in coking ovens into coke, which was needed to fuel the region’s blast furnaces, which produced iron and steel. Ruhr coal-mining district grew into the largest industrial region of Europe.

The industrial revolution in France was a particular process for it did not correspond to the main model followed by other countries. Notably, most French historians considers that France did not go through a clear take-off . Instead, France economic growth and industrialization process was slow and steady along the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. However, some stages were identified by Maurice Lévy-Leboyer : French Revolution and Napoleonic wars (1789-1815), industrialization, along with Britain (1815-1860), economic slow (1860-1905), renewal of the growth after 1905.
Less than developed nation will need to feed the developed nations with raw material; this will cause an inequity between the haves and the have nots
Russia Japan and US will become more imperial (the name of the next unit)
Nation that relay on agricultural will be left behind whereas nations that shift to industry will lead in the 20th century.
