THE ROBBER BARONS OF THE 19TH CENTURY Cornelius Vanderbuilt... ... an ill educated, ungrammatical, coarse, and ruthless, but clear-visioned man. He started his millions in the steamboat industry. As a young boy he went to work for a small steamboat owner, Thomas Gibbons. After learning how to operate a steamboat, he designed one and persuaded Gibbons to build it. Vanderbuilt's slogans of low prices for superior rates attracted many customers. But an unknown to the passengers was that the food a

Woodrow Wilson and The Presidency
Woodrow Wilson and The Presidency
Woodrow Wilson and The Presidency From the beginning of the 1912 election, the people could sense the new ideas of Woodrow Wilson would move them in the right direction. Wilson's idea of New Freedom would almost guarantee his presidential victory in 1912. In contrast to Wilson's New Freedom, Roosevelt's New Nationalism called for the continued consolidation of trusts and labor unions, paralleled by the growth of powerful regulatory agencies. Roosevelt's ideas were founded in the Herbert Croly's
Laissez-Faire
Laissez-Faire
Laissez-Faire The American Civil War fades away. It now appears that a new social unrest has taken root in America. But the debate was to be fought in the economic world. The question was, how should the government interact with business? The issue splits into two main views, that of Laissez-faire, and that of General Welfare. Laissez-faire is a rather straight-forward philosophy. It can be best described by saying that the government should have absolutely no interaction within the business wor
The Republic
The Republic
The Republic The cover quotation from The Republic by Plato gives insight into the action of man and the forces that influence these actions, with respect to equality and justice. In essence, Plato is trying to convey the necessity of government and other influence to keep even the most pious and righteous person in check. When we examine the governmental aspect of this quotation and assume that Plato values equality, we see that he shuns lack of government. In concordance with Plato, I feel tha
Theodore Roosevelt was more
Theodore Roosevelt was more
Theodore Roosevelt was more than just the 26th president of the United States. He was a writer, historian, explorer, big-game hunter, soldier, conservationist, ranchman and Nobel Peace Prize winner. It is not surprising that his philosophy of life was known as The Strenuous Life. Theodore was born into a wealthy and socially prominent New York family in 1858. Although blessed with a quick mind he was not blessed with a strong body. He suffered from life-threatening asthma attacks throughout his

Industrial Revolution The new industrial age was even more important than the first one. What made this new industrial age so special compared to the first one, were invention like the light bulb. This new light bulb, for which Thomas Edison was made so famous for lasted longer than any others invented before it. The new light bulb didn’t produce a blinding light and it was totally silent. But, the light bulb couldn’t have been without the new usage of electric power. Electric power not only pr

From 1790 to the 1870s state and national governments intervened in t
From 1790 to the 1870’s, state and national governments intervened in the American economy mainly to aid private economic interests and promote economic growth. Between 1890 and 1929, however, government intervention was designed primarily to curb and regulate private economic activity in the public interest. Assess the validity of this statement, discussing for each of these periods at least TWO major areas of public economic policy. The statement is essentially true, in the time of 1790 to 1
Jackson and Roosevelt
Jackson and Roosevelt
Jackson and Roosevelt By Noah Abbott The United States of America has had forty two presidents. Most of these men shared interests, desires, and concerns that included and went beyond their years as president. Some of our nation’s leaders hold more things in common than the rest. Despite seventy years between their times in office, Andrew Jackson and Teddy Roosevelt were two very similar personalities. Not only in their upbringing, but in their personalities, moral convictions, professional fee

Many peoples have contributed to the development of the United States
Many peoples have contributed to the development of the United States of America, a vast nation that arose from a scattering of British colonial outposts in the New World. The first humans to inhabit the North American continent were migrants from northeast Asia who established settlements in North America as early as 8000 BC and possibly much earlier (see NORTH AMERICAN ARCHAEOLOGY). By about AD 1500 the native peoples of the areas north of the Rio Grande had developed a variety of different c

Company Insights on BP On August 30, we all chose 5 stocks to evaluate before purchasing. At this time I chose BP AMOCO, Microsoft, Western Digital, Toys-R-Us, and Fortune Financial Incorporated. After a few weeks of tracking these stocks, I chose to keep BP AMOCO, Microsoft, and Western Digital, because the stocks were relatively stable and most of them were on the rise at this time.
