In the last century the telephone caused
profound changes in the whole society because it helped to communicate people and
consequently to redefine the way people
made business. The use of telephones along
with other technologies such as production
machinery, transportation, electricity, and
the telegraph produced the change from an
agricultural to an industrial economy. Even
more important, telephones and the other
technologies accelerate the shift from craftbased work to mass production, and the
appearance of vertically integrated multinationals that replaced the small owneroperated firms.
