The industrial revolution was a period of growth and inventions as we all know. However it was also a period of lack of growth in many currently not studied ways. There are many inventions which we lost from ever being made due to things like child labor and long hours. The labor laws were non-existant for a long time, and so middle class people and below had a shared problem. Think of it this way, the average factory worker wakes up, goes to work, ends work at late hours, has meals in between obviously, and goes back home after which he directly goes to sleep, repeat. How many inventions could this have stunted? There was lack of comfort during the industrial revolution as well as long working hours. You are probably thinking; "you could say that about anything" however this period of time is unique in history with the strength of its problems as well as its achievements.

Interesting question. You might have a point there considering those long work hours would have drained anyone. Unfortunately it was a growth period for socio-economics. Hence later hours were more manageable with more free time. However you could also argue that many great inventions and thinkers of the centuries around the birth of Christ up until the late 1800s were stifled as well due to harsh punishment for breaking away from the norm. (Religion and the politics of the time [i.e. monarchies] created structured thinking along with harsh economic problems in small towns and villages. The only exception being in large cities acting as large trading centers.)

now that is a tl;dr for you spammers.
