Although they were “people who have an important job in the industry and can influence company and national planning”, according to the Cambridge dictionary, just like Robber Barons they both strove for a success of themselves and for their company. However, Captains of Industry were able to influence companies with a sensible approach, not by using brute force and blackmail such as Robber Barons. Captains of industry had a positive impact on the industry, not only changing the way that the industry would function today, but also change their approach on how they would impact future
In her various quotes, we can find many reasons for her belief that man is overall good to one another. I think her religious beliefs helped her through her struggles and was an enormous reason why she thought that people were truly good at heart. Two other reasons are the fact that the Americans and the British came to rescue the Jews from the Germans and that the employees of her father (Otto Frank) tried to keep them hidden from the Nazis, while providing her family with news and food to keep
The development of Bureaucracy was due to increasing citizen demand for improved government services and for the government to develop their own goals for policy. Citizens sought more government involvement, such as, regulating corporate behavior and delivering more services. Andrew Jackson’s election in 1829 also influenced the development of bureaucracy. At the height of his election, Jackson introduced a spoils system where those involved in Jackson’s campaign were rewarded with positions in government. Detailed procedures were then developed to direct new employees who lacked experience.

European powers continued to claim overseas empires to exploit their resources for their own benefit. Following the Industrial Revolution in the mid-nineteenth century, Europe had advanced tremendously. Technological advances and the development of a capitalist economy called for support from overseas markets and resources. Jules Ferry claims that “imperialism involved the aggressive search for, and international conflict over territory or spheres of influence providing markets and outlets for investment”. The European powers were highly concerned with increasing their capital.
Rikki Dianne Saul October 8, 2015 Influencing the Society Cornelius Vanderbilt was an entrepreneur who got his start in the steamboat industry. He was able to fight against the New York state government monopoly on steamboats by offering the same transportation for cheaper costs. He illustrated for us that the free market is better for bringing costs down, not only for stateside travels, but transatlantic and continental trips from the East Coast to the West Coast. John D. Rockefeller taught us the values of good stewardship, which is to not leave anything to waste. Not only did he provide kerosene oil to the homes of Americans, but he used the supposedly wasteful byproducts of gasoline for fuel, and tar for paving.

“Much of the blame heaped on the captains of industry in the late 19th century is unwarranted.” (Document F). The Gilded Age was a time where the U.S. economy grew very quickly and rapidly, due to the inventive minds and entrepreneurs of that time; but it has different perspectives of opinions in history today. This era led the U.S. to its state and place in the present world, thanks to its important contributors, (who are involved in the main debate of whether they were robber barons, unethical men who yearn for money, or captains of industry, leaders who add positive ideas and methods to benefit their country.) The industrial leaders of the Gilded Age are captains of industry, worthy of some gratitude and credit for how our society’s structure
