The Positives that the industrial revolution produced were that the economies were strengthened by factories being built. Cities were starting to rapidly grow and more jobs were being created. People who were looking for jobs did not have to worry about being very skilled because inside the factories their were machines doing the work, and they only had to supervise the machines. The machines also produced items faster than by human hands.
The industrial revolution did cause negatives but there were ways to show that they were working hard on improving things.
