Abstract:

The Age of Enterprise is a new interpretation of the history of the United States based upon the existing monographic material in American history, economics, and related social subjects. It is not a book of original research, though the authors themselves have published a few of the articles from which material has been drawn. America has been settled mainly by enterprising immigrants seeking economic opportunities and economic freedom. The most dramatic story in our history is the story of business enterprise itself, the story of its institutions and their impact upon American society. It is time to try to chart the course of our history from a busines point of view. - Introduction.
