Description


Learn about the events that made America what she is today.

Since the first English settlers arrived in North America, the history of the United States has been closely linked to the history of capitalism. This book details the development of the U.S. economy, from the earliest colonial businesses to the rise of technology companies in recent decades. It also explores the ever-present tension between capitalists' desire for a free market and the need for government regulation.
