Which of the trends started by railroads are still part of the modern business world?

  • Social Studies - ,

    I can think of several.

    What are your choices? What does your book say?

  • Social Studies - ,

    These are the examples given in my textbook are the following:
    1. Linked the economies of the West and East.
    2. Helped people settle the West.
    3. Weakened the Native American hold on the West.
    4. Gave people more control of the environment.

  • Social Studies - ,

    That looks good to me.

    You could substitute for 2 the transportation of goods from west to east and vice versa.

    Number 3 is no longer relevant.

  • Social Studies - ,

    It also mentions standard time.

  • Social Studies - ,

    Am I to included it?

  • Social Studies - ,

    I don't think standard times is relevant to railroads today.

  • Social Studies - ,

    But my textbook states, "To solve the issues of solar time, railroad companies set up standard time."

    ...Are you certain?

  • Social Studies - ,

    I just reread your original question. Yes, standard time zones should be included.
