Were the Robber Barons selfish capitalists or successful entrepreneurs? Take a look at output and prices in the industries influenced by Andrew Carnegie (steel and shipping), J.P. Morgan (financier and banking ), Henry Ford (auto), and John D. Rockefeller (oil). Production and employment in their industries increased while prices fell and the availability of financing expanding for the he general population. Are these industrial captains who took advantage of others? Or, did they prosper because they served others in entrepreneurial ways? Join us for this interactive webinar.
