At the end of the 19th century, After the unification of Germany by dynastic war, Prussia established the capitalist system by adopting the Constitution of the German Empire and the constitutional monarchy of the German Empire in 1871.But with a strong military feudalism. After the industrial Revolution, the reunification of the motherland and the establishment of the capital attention system provided a strong guarantee for Germany's rapid development in the world economy at that time .In 1878 Bismarck officially began a protectionist trade policy .It was under the guidance of this idea that the German government began to consciously guide the development of heavy industry after 1880.Human and material resources are more rationally utilized under the guidance of the state. So that the electrical, chemical, railway, steel and other industries quickly become the forefront of the world. This was one of the most effective means of making Germany an industrial power. In 1889 industrial output overtook agriculture and Germany became an industrial country. The Industrial revolution, which took Britain nearly 100 years to complete, took Germany less than half that time.
