The Agricultural Revolution gave way to drastic changes in farming. Farmers discovered a crop rotation system and fallowing. These ideas helped increase agricultural output by almost tripling it.

The Industrial Revolution expanded the factory system. With inventions like the flying shuttle, cloth became cheaper, and hand weavers began to decline. However, working conditions were very poor, because no laws were passed.

In conclusion, these revolutions caused a lot of inventions to be made, and advanced many countries.
