   schema:description "The modern American economy was the creation of four men: Andrew Carnegie, John D. Rockefeller, Jay Gould, and J.P. Morgan. They were the giants of the Gilded Age, a moment of riotous growth that established America as the richest, most inventive, and most productive country on the planet. Charles R. Morris brings the men and their times to life. The ruthlessly competitive Carnegie, the imperial Rockefeller, and the provocateur Gould were obsessed with progress, experiment, and speed. They were balanced by Morgan, the gentleman businessman, who fought, instead, for a global trust in American business. Through their antagonism and their verve, they built an industrial behemoth -- and a country of middle-class consumers."@en ;
