At what moments and in what ways did Jews play a central role in American capitalism? Chosen Capital addresses this question head-on by exploring Jews' impact on American capitalism as both its architects--through their participation in specific industries--and as its most vocal critics through their support of unionism and radical political movements. Essays are contributed by a stellar list of scholars
