Prophets of Regulation by Thomas K. McCraw

Book Description

There is properly no history, only biography, Emerson remarked, and in this ingenious book Thomas McGraw unfolds the history of four powerful men: Charles Francis Adams, Louis D. Brandeis, James M. Landis, and Alfred E. Kahn. The absorbing stories he tells make this a book that will appeal across a wide spectrum of academic disciplines and to all readers interested in history, biography, and Americana.

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.
