Corpocracy: The Business History of America

ID : 692   
« back to classes page
From steam power to computing power, the history of America is business. Electric lights and newspapers, cotton and steel, food and drugs, unions and bootlegging – the timeline of America is marked by its ingenuities, and also by the people who created them. America relishes the impact of business on our culture. It will be the challenge of the study group to connect business history with every aspect of American life: economic, political and sociological. Our text is Americana, by Bhu Srivinasan (Penguin Press, 2017). The author is an immigrant who embraces the panorama of American enterprise in 33 chapters which cover whole industries as well as individual entrepreneurs. To manage the sweeping story, the group will democratically vote for the chapters we will read and discuss over the semester. Note: Class starts on Monday, September 17, 2018.
