Fordism is the result of structural change within Capitalism Fordism evolved from the Capitalist system through an increase in the efficiency of production ass production mass consumption mass media and waste are all characteristics of the Fordist system Fordism thrives on mass production and mass consumption Ford used the assembly line to produce a larger quantity of products in his case automobiles at a quicker rate The assembly line consisted of a line of workers who would each do a specific part of the labor to add to the end result Before the assembly line skilled workers and experienced workers were needed for production of the whole product The assembly line functions in a way that a worker only needs to know one of the many individual tasks in production This allowed for unskilled and inexperienced workers to obtain industrial jobs working on the assembly line As production and consumption increased workers were paid better wages As workers made more money they had more money to spend and so they became consumers as well putting their money back into the Fordist system and creating the beginning of the Fordist cycle The only way that mass production can be successfully supported is by mass consumption Paying workers create the market for mass production higher wages so that they can purchase more products and play their part of mass consumers in the Fordist system This system is effective however it is not all it appears to be Fordism creates a globalization of production and its culture This spread of Fordism has a negative effect on culture the environment and production its self Fordism has spread to other countries outside the United States Germany and Japan are just two examples of countries that have entered what I like to call The Fordist Black Whole The only way to ensure the success of the Fordist system is to continue to mass-produce and mass consume Without mass consumption
