Mr. Kaiser goes to Washington : the rise of a government entrepreneur
Mr. Kaiser goes to Washington : the rise of a government entrepreneur
by:Adams, Stephen B.,
In this book, Stephen Adams offers Kaiser's story as the first detailed case study of "government entrepreneurship." The quintessential government entrepreneur, Kaiser built an empire in construction, shipbuilding, cement, magnesium, steel, and aluminum - all based on government contracts, government loans, and changes in government regulations. Exploring the symbiotic relationship forged between Roosevelt and Kaiser, Adams shows that while Kaiser capitalized on opportunities provided by the growth of the federal government, FDR found in Kaiser an industrial partner whose enterprises embodied his own political goals.
