Creating Modern Capitalism by Thomas K. McCraw

Book Description

What explains the national economic success of the United States, Britain, Germany, and Japan? What can be learned from the long-term championship performances of leading business firms in each country? How important were specific innovations by individual entrepreneurs? And in the end, what is the true nature of capitalist development? The Pulitzer Prize winning historian Thomas K. McCraw and his co-authors present answers to these questions. The book explains, for a broad audience, the interconnections among technological innovation, management science, the power of entrepreneurship, and national economic growth. The authors approach each question from a comparative framework and with a triple focus on national economic systems, particular companies, and individual business leaders. Above all, the book focuses on how specific entrepreneurs influenced the economic success of their countries: Josiah Wedgwood and Henry Royce in Britain; August Thyssen and Georg von Siemens in Germany; Henry Ford, Alfred Sloan, and the two Thomas J. Watsons in the United States; Sakichi Toyoda, Masatoshi Ito, and Toshifumi Suzuki in Japan.

Books By Author Thomas K. McCraw

Founders and Finance by Thomas K. McCraw Founders and Finance, Paperback (May 2014)

In 1776, the U.S. owed huge sums to foreign creditors and its own citizens but, lacking the power to tax, had no means to repay them. This is the first book to tell the story of how foreign-born financial specialists solved the fiscal crisis and set the nation on a path to long-term economic prosperity.

Prophet of Innovation by Thomas K. McCraw Prophet of Innovation, Paperback (November 2009)

Drawing on Joseph A Schumpeter's writings, including many intimate diaries and letters, this biography paints the portrait of this magnetic figure who aspired to become one of the world's greatest economist, lover, and horseman - and admitted to failure only with the horses.
