From the Publisher
Annotation In this vivid group biography, Charles R. Morris shows how four men with vision--Andrew Carnegie, John D. Rockefeller, Jay Gould, and J. P. Morgan--changed the American economy forever by becoming superrich and using their wealth, ambition, and smarts to drive commerce and to bring Americans into the modern era of consumerism. Though each was different from the others in significant points of character and outlook, together they shared a vision that wealth could help shape the culture.
