From the first days of the United States, a battle raged over money. On one side were the democrats, who wanted cheap money and feared the concentration of financial interests in the hands of a few. On the other were the capitalists who sought the soundness of a national bank - and the profits that came with it. In telling this exciting story, H.W. Brands focuses on five "Money Men": Alexander Hamilton, who championed a national bank; Nicholas Biddle, whose run-in with Andrew Jackson led to the bank's demise; Jay Cooke, who financed the Union in the Civil War; Jay Gould, who tried to corner the gold market; and J.P. Morgan, whose position was so commanding that he bailed out the US Treasury. "The Money Men" is a best-selling historian's gripping account of the powerful men who fought over the lifeblood of American commerce and power.
