History has a much better perspective of change than those living it. For example, if you were writing an article about today, what would you call the period we're living in right now? You don't have to name it to write the article as if it is taking place now.

A good description of slum life in that period can be found in Charles Dickenson's novel, Oliver Twist.

Look at:

http://www.answers.com/topic/industrial-revolution

Excerpt: Way down the page.

"When was the Industrial Revolution?

The French coined the term Industrial Revolution in the 19th century as an analogy to their own political revolution. Although the phrase is in common use, it is not always clear what this phenomenon was or even when it occurred."

End excerpt

I would think that if you are writing now about the past i.e. the industrial revolution, you refer to it as just that.

Just as now we refer to the consumer Age, or the Oil Age. Maybe we are still in the Oil age. But there is a need now to name the current time as the "The Communication Age" or "The Internet Age".

Standardization and localization are two of the most important processes of global business. Even though there is no connection between the two processes, as one happens independently of the other, they both became a crucial part of business when trade reached a global scale. This is because companies now target diverse audiences, each with their own languages and standards of quality.
