    Social critique[ edit ] A group of scholars including Allen Scott and Edward Soja argue that industry remains at the center of the whole process of capitalist accumulation, with services not only becoming increasingly industrialized and automated but also remaining highly dependent on industrial growth. Steam power and the cotton gin played an important role in this period. The roads were small and rough.
