Read & download ↠ Morgan American Financier ó PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB History has remembered J Pierpont Morgan as a complex and contradictory figure part robber baron and part patron saint Now this magisterial biography based extensively on new material draws a definitive full scale portrait of Morgan's tumultuous life both in and out of the public eyeMorgan earned his reputation as the Napoleon of Wall Street by reorgani. Have you heard the one about the rich man who when asked how much it cost to maintain his yacht replied that if you have to ask you can t afford it That was J Pierpoint Morgan This is a serious biography about that man by a really smart biographer Jean Strouse She is a Bancroft Prize winner in American History and Diplomacy for another of her books so she knows her stuff I have to say that I read biography from a very female point of view and that colors my opinion of the book To Peirpoint Morgan women were collectables and that is always disappointing Having said that the man was an icon of the gilded age and the words colossal genius are not too encompassing to describe him He brought America safely through very chaotic financial times by his indomitable commitment to making the United States the premier world banking power He lived above the common man all his life and was untouched by the way his machinations affected them He was a guy who didn t need much sleep had a huge capacity for work and a father who set the stage and trained him perfectly for the task He loved to manage ideas things and people He Rockefeller Carnegie Gould etcruthlessly remade America after the Civil War Their excesses both built and preserved America and at the same time set the stage for the the modern American sensibility of political correctness and the rights of the individual a direct reaction to the huge monopolistic trusts of that age I must also add that this book was a graduate class in finance If you want to know how financial instruments work but were afraid to ask bring your dictionary and get to reading Not an easy read but fascinating and important

Read & download ↠ Morgan American Financier ó PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Zing the nation's railroads and creating some of its greatest industrial trusts including General Electric and US Steel At a time when the United States had no Federal Reserve System he appointed himself a one man central bank He had two wives three yachts four children six houses mistresses and one of the finest art collections in America In this extra. published in 1999 Jean Strouse s Morgan American Financier was the first full scale biography of JP Morgan in several decades Strouse is also the author of Alice James A Biography which won the Bancroft Prize in American History and Diplomacy She is currently writing a book about John Singer Sargent s Wertheimer portraitsThe best early biographies of JP Morgan include Frederick Lewis Allen s 1949 The Great Pierpont Morgan and the 1939 authorized biography J Pierpont Morgan An Intimate Portrait by Morgan s son in law Herbert Satterlee Strouse s book however benefits enormously from her tenacious pursuit of new sources including documents found in the Pierpont Morgan Library and the Morgan Grenfell ArchivesDuring its early pages this book comes across as one of the most intriguing biographies I ve ever read The author describes her uest to uncover the real Morgan her analysis of previous biographies including their strengths and limitations her hunt for new primary source materials and her efforts to separate fact from fiction are immediately entrancingStrouse s writing style is dense and impactful always full of depth and force but is rarely fluid or easy to read Rather than leading readers on a captivating journey through Morgan s life the narrative inculcates its audience with a steady barrage of facts while rarely slowing long enough to set a scene or add color to Morgan s surprisingly dull complexionAt first glance JP Morgan seems an ideal biographical subject he was an icon of the business world helped save the US economy on multiple occasions and led a seemingly fascinating life including two marriages numerous affairs and complicated relationships with his father and children And yet Morgan never comes across as a particularly colorful or engaging characterWhat is difficult to determine is whether the author is uninspiring as a storytelleror that JP Morgan was far less interesting than one might suspect But what is undeniable is that Strouse is unable to tease out and accentuate whatever bits of vivacity may have existed in Morgan s lifeThis book s strengths are numerous and include insightful observations concerning the gold standard and monetary policy including the role and limitations of central banks Morgan s stewardship of the American economy his influence over global corporate finance his interest in Thomas Edison s new technologies and his complex family dynamics The biography is also filled with footnotes which are often interesting than the narrative itselfBut the author fills the text with a blizzard of detail likely to appeal only to the most committed of readers including the nuances of loan syndications mundane intricacies of Morgan s life which add little texture to his portrait inconseuential details of bond financings and an extraordinary degree of insight into his art collection Even readers committed to fully understanding Morgan are likely to find this biography excessive in trivialitiesEven the book s Afterword a section where many biographies redeem themselves with pithy but astute observations that were buried in the preceding narrative fails to provide overarching revelations or compelling conclusions concerning Morgan s life or legacyOverall Jean Strouse s biography succeeds at presenting JP Morgan as a far complicated figure than his Robber baron caricature might suggest This book earns extremely high marks for its historical value and it seems unlikely there will ever be a detailed review of Morgan s life What is not hard to imagine however is that there could be a far interesting biography of the manOverall rating 3 stars
