Good:

  • Goods became cheaper to produce from inventions, so consumers could afford to buy these goods.
  • Long term: more jobs
  • Short term: fewer jobs because many laborers were replaced by machinery
  • Rapid advance of technology (e.g. Steam engine)
  • Jobs, trade, communication, and transportation increased

Bad:

  • Workers were underpaid and neglected
  • Work conditions were deplorable
  • By-products of industrial manufacture processes led to mass pollution and destruction of the environment.
  • Many of the houses were very cramped sometimes with sometimes, two or more families per room.
  • Many children that labored in factories/mills/mines were dehumanized physically and mentally. (Jack London's "The Apostate")

One good result of the Industrial Revolution is that it leads to may different inventions. And one bad result of the Industrial Revolution is that it pollutes the air too much. It allowed common people to afford many things that were not available to people before, and gave them the ability to afford them by providing jobs.
