vol. 5, October 2012, p. 16-26


History is not a progressive timeline, it is a dynamic spectrum. The issues of today are no different than those of the past, but how are we to learn how to address these issues of we do not acknowledge the past? This paper analyzes the relationship between the federal government and business throughout the history of the United States. To what extent should the government be involved with the economy and what were the effects of various degrees of involvement? Using several periods during the history of the United States, this paper analyzes just that question.
