J. P. Morgan is more than just the name on one of the largest banks in America. He was a man who altered the course of American finance and the chief financier for the strategic interests of the titans of the day, such as Carnegie and Rockefeller. He also financed new and ingenious technologies developed by Thomas Edison and was a visionary who saw the potential in Nikola Tesla.
His ability was not limited to Wall Street, though, and his reputation was not bound by the shores of America. He touched core industries in his lifetime, from shipping to power to steel and provided the spark that reignited the economic soul of America after the Crash of 1907.
He had a personal side, too. Broken by the death of the love of his life, his once spritely demeanor changed, and he found solace in his work. The more he was befallen with sadness, the harder he worked, never once succumbing to the pressures of a world that was changing right around him.
J. P. Morgan built the financial world we live in today and did it with the might of his mind and the crux of his cane. The mold from which he came has long since been broken, and there is no other man, titan, or genius who has come close to the contributions he made for his industry and his country.
Hear all about him and find areas that you may have in common with this towering titan.
