The President and American Capitalism Since 1945

Mark H. Rose and Roger Biles


This anthology contributes to the literature on the history of capitalism and connects the fields of political history, business history, and presidential studies. The essays demonstrate the prominent role of presidents in the economic and social fabric of American life. At the same time, the essays highlight the changing role of liberalism in post-World War II America. The chapters are organized thematically and grouped together as sections on patterns, sectors, and environments. The book, likewise, emphasizes the key role played by the presidency in the development of capitalism since 1945.

Keywords: Presidency, Capitalism, Political history, Business history, Presidential studies, Liberalism, Post-WWII
