Forty Years of Legal Game-Changers

Forty Years of Legal Game-Changers

Game-changing events can occur on a micro-scale, like a bases-loaded hit that breaks open a close baseball game.  Game changing can also occur on a macro scale like Walter Camp's tossing the ball forward in the 1906 Yale-Princeton football game that transformed that sport forever.  Macro-scale game-changers occur in business and economics as well, and they include:

  • Development of the steam engine
  • Emergence of railroads
  • The Drake oil well
  • Invention of the internal combustion engine
  • Introduction of income tax
  • Commercial application of electricity
  • Invention of the computer
  • Splitting of the atom
  • Introduction of the Internet and World Wide Web
