Capitalism USA - The Gilded Age

August 14th, 2015

Episode 327 of 674 episodes

Irish comedian and business commentator Colm O'Regan travels to New York to explore the history of capitalism in the USA and how it has shaped modern US economic thinking. Colm's tongue-in-cheek approach to the subject takes him to Wall Street, Broadway and a statue of Founding Father Thomas Jefferson, as he learns - in the first of two programmes - about how capitalism developed in the years up until 1900.
