Kim Phillips-Fein

Professor, Gallatin School of Individualized Study and Department of History, New York University

Phillips-Fein will work on a book analyzing the various defenses of economic inequality advanced by American business leaders and economic writers who wrote accounts of capitalism for a wide public audience. Her historical narrative will explore the various ways members of the elite wrote about economic inequality, and the arguments they advanced in its defense. Among those profiled are Andrew Carnegie, Alfred P. Sloan, Henry Ford and Sam Walton.
