    No offense, but it's spelled 'broad'.

    Basically, it made it unbalanced.

    It created greater wealth stratification: with almost all major wealth concentrated in a small percentage of the population (around 10% own about 90% of all wealth) with a small middle class, and a large population of workers who are lower middle to lower class.

    Those with the means of capital thrived during the period of industrial growth and those without the means of capital remained rather stagnant. This distribution of wealth was very unequal.

    But that is capitalism.
