FROM THE PUBLISHER - Matthew Josephson’s classic THE ROBBER BARONS became one of the most widely read books of our time. Now, in an equally fascinating journey of exploration, the noted author takes the reader into the next important period in American corporate and financial life: the day of the money lords, the chieftain and the charlatans who merged and pyramided gigantic holding companies and immense personal wealth during unfettered capitalism’s last hurrah, the 1920s and 1930s. The most awesome, and acquisitive, of these outsized men are all here: Samuel Insull of Chicago: the Van Sweringen brothers of Cleveland: A. P. Giannini of San Francisco: Robert R. Young of Texas and New York, among others. Matthew Josephson knew the era and its great finance grandees well, and he illuminates from personal knowledge as well as from public record the lives of these gifted and driven magnates and manipulators. Men of consummate greed and not a little grandeur, heirs to the robber barons, though with differing attributes and styles, the money lords made a widely opportunistic era their bailiwick and their instrument. No one quite like them remains today. Or do they?. Bookseller Inventory # 19551
