Description du livre Paperback. Etat : New. Language: English. Brand new Book. *Includes pictures *Includes contemporary accounts *Includes online resources and a bibliography for further reading "It was the custom when men received nominations to come to me for contributions, and I made them and considered them good paying investments for the company. In a Republican district I was a strong Republican; in a Democratic district I was Democratic, and in doubtful districts I was doubtful. In politics I was an Erie Railroad man all the time." - Jay Gould The term robber baron has largely fallen into disuse in the 21st century but there was a time when it was a popular epithet that described the kind of man who, it was believed, built his fortune by taking things belonging to others. The Gilded Age and the dawn of the 20th century are often remembered as an era full of monopolies, trusts, and economic giants in heavy industries like oil and steel. Men like Andrew Carnegie built empires like Carnegie Steel, and financiers like J.P. Morgan merged and consolidated them. The era also made names like Astor, Cooke, and Vanderbilt instantly recognizable across the globe. Over time, the unfathomable wealth generated by the businesses made the individuals on top incredibly rich, and that in turn led to immense criticism and an infamous epithet used to rail against them: robber barons. The industrial might wielded by men like Gould in the later 19th century directly led to a public backlash and made President Teddy Roosevelt the "trust buster", and there has since been countless regulations to attempt to avoid the types of monopolies found over 100 years ago. However, many 20th century historians and writers pushed back against the allegations hurled at the "robber barons" and even took issue with the name. Libertarian writer John Stossel argued, "They weren't robbers, because they didn't steal from anyone, and they weren't barons-they were born poor." Of all the men labeled as robber barons during the Gilded Age, nobody was as notorious during his time as Jason Gould, known to his few friends as Jay and his many enemies by names not suitable to print. Famed editor Joseph Pulitzer called Gould "[o]ne of the most sinister figures that ever flitted, bat-like, across the vision of the American people," and Robert G. Ingersoll said of him, "I do not believe that since man was in the habit of living on this planet anyone has ever lived possessed of the impudence of Jay Gould." In more recent times, writers have been more forgiving of Gould's actions, even as they continue to recognize his unscrupulous dealings. As Maury Klein and Joseph Calandro, Jr. observed in a 2016 edition of Financial History, "No one in United States financial and business history is as misunderstood, and under-appreciated, as Jay Gould. There are a number of reasons for this: First and foremost, Gould earned a reputation as the most hated man in America. Two early episodes, the Erie Railroad War and Black Friday, when he conceived an audacious scheme to corner the nation's gold supply in 1869, did much to create the image of him as a ruthless, unprincipled Wall Street renegade who seemed always to skirt the letter of the law." He studied every aspect he could of the booming railroad industry of the Civil War era, and then parlayed his money and connections to end up on the right side of the Stock Market crash in 1869. He would also win the infamous Erie War, and when he was swindled out of both control of the Erie and a significant part of his fortune, he did not quit. Regardless of what people thought of him, in many respects, Gould's death marked the end of an era for the land grabbers, speculators, and railroad barons who built America, just as surely as they did their own fortunes. Jay Gould: The Life and Legacy of the Railroad Executive Who Became America's Most Notorious Robber Baron analyzes the tycoon's life, why he was so widely reviled, and his lasting legacy.
