About Industrialist Capitalist

Industrialist Capitalist examines the processes in which the  socio-economic philosophy of  American capitalism has promised Americans the  equality of opportunity, but has failed in doing so.  Today, most  American wealth is concentrated  with  only a  tiny fraction of wealthy  Americans, leaving large economic disparities and inequality among lower economic classes.  Industrialist Capitalist looks  to the Gilded Age as the  period in history where this  tradition of inequality was established.  We examine economic policies, illustrations and  industrial empires that some of the wealthiest American capitalists built through manipulation, bribery,  and abuse of  governmental and economic institutions meant to benefit all Americans.
