This is a 19 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on Industrialization & Urbanization - Jay Gould. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Jay Gould was a businessman who came to personify the robber baron in late 19th century America. He had a reputation for ruthless business tactics, many of which would be illegal today, and was often considered the most despised man in the nation.
Over the course of his career, Gould made and lost several fortunes, yet when he died in December 1892 newspapers stories estimated his wealth at more than $100 million. Rising from humble roots, he first attained considerable wealth as an unscrupulous trader on Wall Street during the Civil War.
Gould became notorious for his role in two well-publicized business episodes, the Erie Railroad War, a struggle to control a major railroad, and the Gold Corner, a crisis precipitated when Gould tried to corner the market on gold to further his other business strategies.
The presentation covers the following:
Trader & Manipulator
The Erie War
The Gold Corner
Death of Fisk
Railroads & Fortune
