    To what extent did the Industrial Revolution of the Gilded Age in the late 1800's change the United States socially and economically.
    Consider:
    1.  Social and economic problems of big cities as well as technological innovations and the corruption experienced in this time period.
    2. What government position allowed big businesses to prosper prior to the Sherman Anti trust Act and the Interstate Commerce Act?
    3.  Inevitably, how will corruption be addressed and by whom?
