The Cotton Kings

Capitalism and Corruption in Turn-of-the-Century New York and New Orleans

Bruce E. Baker and Barbara Hahn

  • The story of the cotton kings speaks directly to conflicts today between Wall Street and Main Street, between free markets and regulation.
  • An economic competition between New York and New Orleans told through the lives of fascinating individuals and dramatic incidents.
  • Offers an alternate explanation to overproduction, the most commonplace reason for why cotton farmers in the 1890s were in a constant cycle of debt.
