Description
 
This book takes an in-depth look at the most notable merger & acquisition (M&A) deals of the 20th century -- & the role Wall Street played in each of them. Beginning with J. P. Morgan’s acquisition of Carnegie Steel in 1901 to form U.S. Steel, Geisst traces the deals that have had the most dramatic impact on the worlds of both finance & industry. Decade by decade, you’ll be introduced to the personalities behind each event, as industries are built, dismantled, & reorganized by “professionals” driven mainly by the profits extracted from the deals themselves more than by the long-term effects. Some of the companies include: International Harvester, U.S. Steel, General Motors, GE, AOL Time Warner, Cisco Systems, & J. P. Morgan Chase. Illus.
