What makes the United States and Canada leading industrial nations?

My answer: Both countries are leading agricultural and industrial nations because of their wealth of resources. The United States and Canada possess ample water resources, a immense amount of land, fertile soils, large forests. and valuable deposits of iron ore, nickel, copper, gold, silver, and uranium. Both countries also have substantial deposits of coal, natural gas, and oil, and well-developed networks for distributing these energy-producing fossil fuels.
