"After One Hundred Years" traces the vital role of business and business leaders--alongside the government and non-profit sectors--in dramatically raising America's standard of living during the twentieth century. From the prologue that reveals Franklin Roosevelt's concerns just three days before his inauguration, through chapters that describe the country's growth and what happened to the massive fortunes of the robber barons and twentieth century industrial tycoons, this book shatters some widely held stereotypes. This well-researched history draws from corporate records, presidential letters and congressional reports, the wills and estate plans of the wealthiest and testimonies of those in need. This book fills a large gap that exists in most histories of America's twentieth century and sheds light on today's quest for innovation, job growth, renewed prosperity for the middle class and security for those in need.

About the Author

During his thirty year career at a major property-casualty insurance company, Joseph J. Dunn met frequently with employees and executives at Fortune 500 corporations. Access to their facilities and discussion of their business plans provided rare insight into the levers of profitability in their industries, competitive strategies and corporate cultures, and how local, national and international regulations affect their decisions. He was a member of the board of directors of American Nuclear Insurers and Industrial Risk Insurers.
Dunn received a Bachelor of Arts degree from St. Joseph's College (now University) and completed executive education programs at Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and Darden School of Business (University of Virginia).
Since retiring from business, Dunn has conducted extensive research into the ways in which corporate profits impact American society.
