Abstract

In Accounting for Capitalism: The World the Clerk Made, Michael Zakim examines how an emergent class of finance professionals fundamentally transformed the foundations of the US economy and democracy in the nineteenth century. This thorough and cogently argued investigation demonstrates the grand historical consequences wrought by these lesser-known enablers of a new economic system, finds Jeff Roquen.
