This is a 16 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on Industrialization & Urbanization - Andrew Carnegie's - Gospel of Wealth. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Considering that Andrew Carnegie was among the richest men in American history, his unabashed support for the capitalist system is easy to understand. A Scottish immigrant to the US, Carnegie amassed his vast fortune primarily in the steel industry in the late 1800s. By the time he sold the Carnegie Steel Company in 1901, it was worth more than $400 million in today’s dollars, according to the Carnegie Foundation.
He said only a select few top competitors could, and should, control the largest proportions of wealth. Needless to say, this is not necessarily a politically correct viewpoint in all corners of today’s world, but Carnegie implored the super-rich of his era to recognize and embrace their inherent obligation to use their wealth for philanthropy.
He practiced what he preached: During his lifetime he donated more than $350 million to a variety of causes, including the establishment of numerous libraries and Carnegie Mellon University. His views of capitalism, philanthropy, and human nature remain rooted in sincerity and in an understanding of the value of a dollar, particularly a dollar put to a good cause.
The presentation covers the following:
“The Gospel of Wealth”
The Select Few
The Greatest Net Benefit
New Modes of Giving
Modes of Wealth Distribution
Dependents Supported by Work
A Dollar Put to a Good Cause
