Summary
Envy of the World is a history of the rise and development of the American economy and Big Business over four centuries. It details how the individual and collective actions of Americans, native born and foreign, came to create the $11.5 trillion economy of today. Although the building American juggernaut was blessed above other nations with all manner of natural resources, the inventiveness and drive of the American people made the most of what Providence had bestowed. Steadily, then more swiftly, the foundation was laid for success. More intimate knowledge of economic reality and theory in the 20th century led ultimately to the world's greatest economy of today. The book provides periodic quantitative summation of gross domestic product, population, employment, company results and other statistics, particularly in later chapters. Because the author's philosophy is that a picture and a thousand words are better than either one alone, he has made extensive use of original charts and graphs, illustrations, industry genealogies and maps
