Brahmin Capitalism: Wealth & Populism in America's First Gilded Age

Monday, February 27, 2017 at 4:30pm

A. D. White House, Guerlac room

Join us for a panel discussion of Noam Maggor's new book, Brahmin Capitalism: Frontiers of Wealth & Populism in America's First Gilded Age. Maggor’s provocative history of the Gilded Age reveals the decisive role of organized wealth in the emergence of modern capitalism, as financial power collided with more grassroots visions of economic progress in contests that had lasting implications for democracy, government, and inequality. 

Noam Maggor is a postdoctoral fellow with the Cornell History Department.

Panelists are Aziz Rana (Cornell Law School), Stefan Link (History, Dartmouth College), and Elizabeth Sanders (Government, Cornell University).

Reception to follow.
