Summary
"An Unlikely Trust is the story of the uneasy but fruitful collaboration between Theodore Roosevelt and Pierpont Morgan. It is also the story of how government and business evolved from a relationship of laissez-faire to the active regulation that we know today. And it is an account of how, despite all that has changed in America over the past century, so much remains the same, including the growing divide between rich and poor; the tangled bonds uniting politicians and business leaders; and the pervasive feeling that government is working for the special interests rather than for the people. Not least of all, it is the story of how citizens with vastly disparate outlooks and interests managed to come together for the good of their common country."--Amazon.com summary
Summary
As the twentieth century opened, Theodore Roosevelt and J. Pierpont Morgan were the two most powerful men in America, perhaps the world. The transformations they wrought in the processes of government and business were essential to creating our modern age. Yet no book has focused exclusively on the relationship between these two pivotal figures, and when they have been considered together, the result has generally been to reduce them to battling colossi, the great trust builder versus the original trustbuster. The truth is that their long association was far more complex, and that—despite risks for both men—it saved U.S. business
