Railroads were probably the most significant element in American economic development during the last quarter of the nineteenth century in addition to new natural resources, and the development of free trade agreements. Individual and/or group response to the industrial revolution is quite apparent today as opportunities created ventures of profitability, increasing marjket participation and availabilities, while generating new competitiveness within the United States market as well as the appealing influences grasping the attention of foreign investors. Government intervened as a result of  unfair competition while observing industry leaders expansion, resulting in the monopolization of industry conglomerates.
