  • Is the current spate of acquisitions and mergers anything to be concerned about?

  • Does consolidation threaten competition and hurt consumers or is the market working just fine?

  • Were men like Rockefeller and Carnegie “captains of industry” or “robber barons”?

  • How do they compare with modern industrial and business leaders?

  • Is the role of anti-trust legislation and court rulings from the late 19th and early 20th centuries similar or different today to balance competition and innovation?

  • How has the role of government oversight (Progressive regulation vs. laissez faire deregulation) changed in the past century?

We will take a look at the history of the Gilded Age in the U.S. (1870-1900). Related topics might include the role of government, anti-trust legislation, monopoly power, and different approaches in the E.U. and U.S. – lots of connections to H.S. history, economics, and civics standards.
