    Kindle nuiun.de è Americana Kindle À americana mobile, Americana MOBINice try but no The book is well intentioned but in my opinion fails to deliver on its promise The author is well read and seems to come from a venture background He has written a 400 year history of American capitalism that seems somewhat effective as an extended personal statement of the author’s views on the American experience with the market I would have liked the book if it had been good history along with being a heartfelt personal reflection on US business history Every one of the chapters in the book while containing nuggets of insight come across as highly oversimplified efforts to condense a lots of material into a focused punchline filled statement of sorts The trouble

    Kindle nuiun.de è Americana Kindle À americana mobile, Americana MOBIThis book is an excellent overview of 400 years of American capitalism with tremendous insights It's a uick read though roughly 500 pages The stories are tight Not too much detail but enough to paint the picture and tie together the narratives There are profound parallels to our modern world and we all might hit pause on the iPhone and crack a history book This one doesn't disappoint

    Kindle nuiun.de è Americana Kindle À americana mobile, Americana MOBIIt's possibly just my finance background but I loved this book The book incompletely of course recounts American history through the eyes of business It provided a new point of view and associated motivations that weren't traditionally told on many events throughout history I enjoyed how it told a number of entrepreneurial stories that I hadn't previously heard especially in the gilded age and prior I look forward to reading further books to learn about the interesting onesThe book starts to fall flat as we get closer to present day where there themes stories were almost scatterbrained and shoehorned in but given how much this history

    Kindle nuiun.de è Americana Kindle À americana mobile, Americana MOBIA wonderful book The author reviews the history of capitalism within the history of the US focusing a lot on technological advances that spurred the advance of our economy One recurrent theme is that our capitalism is not the unfettered kind that laissez faire right wing pundits like to claim it is but that the interplay between government and private industry has led to most of our progressAlthough much of this story is probably familiar territory to most readers the author adds fresh perspectives to material that I found refreshing
