The man who set the course for Big Business in America today

HOW JACK WELCH DESTROYED GE BY PUTTING SHAREHOLDERS FIRST

THE MAN WHO BROKE CAPITALISM: HOW JACK WELCH GUTTED THE HEARTLAND AND CRUSHED THE SOUL OF CORPORATE AMERICA — AND HOW TO UNDO HIS LEGACY BY DAVID GELLES (2022) 272 PAGES ★★★★☆

GE closed scores of manufacturing plants like this one in Fort Edward, New York, during the two decades Jack Welch ran the company. He shut down businesses entirely or moved the jobs to nonunion states. Or, more often, he shipped the work overseas, setting in motion a trend among the nation’s biggest companies to put profits over people. Image: Albany Business Review
