American Capitalism Besieged

Few things gladden my heart like opening my morning paper (the Washington Post), or any periodical for that matter, and seeing my brother’s name. This has happened more than once. And it’s up to me to find it; I get no advance warning from the source.

In “American Capitalism Besieged,” columnist Robert Samuelson quotes Richard Tedlow (the brother in question) on the fate of Richard Whitney, who was head of the New York Stock Exchange in 1928. Richard Tedlow has focused on business history for most of his professional life; he is currently the MBA Class of 1949 Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School.
