Business of America: Tales From the Marketplace
John Steele Gordon (au). For more than 10 years, Gordon has written the widely read “The Business of America” column in “American Heritage” mag. His stories have celebrated the high points, & occasional low points, in the history of business of this country, from colonial days to the present. Now, the best of his mini-histories have been gathered in one volume. Gordon reveals how broad trends have developed (gov’t. debt & inflation, for example) & how specific words (boondoggle, pork barrel) have entered our language. In addition to being a superb historian, Gordon is a great storyteller. Surveying almost 400 years of enterprise on this continent, this volume makes invaluable connections between eras & allows us a new appreciation of the richness of the American story.
