The rise of finance capitalism affected an organisation of work, the development of consumerism, economic inability and the expansion of international trade.
THE ORGANISATION OF WORK
The assembly line developed: each worker specialised in a task, such as placing a nut. Henry Ford was the first to use the assembly line in his car manufacturing company.
THE BIRTH OF THE CONSUMER SOCIETY
The consumer society led to a new way of thinking; people began to value material wellbeing highly.
*The lower class had lower wages and couldn't afford luxury items.
