His motto was &amp;quot;speak softly but carry a big stick.&amp;quot; He came into power with remarkable ideas including the square deal. He would take the power away from industrialists while he controlled big business in the White House. He would soon become known as a Trust-buster. Roosevelt used American power for American interests and was quoted, &amp;quot;I am an American first and last.&amp;quot; Although some historians argue that Roosevelt acted like a six-year-old throughout his presidency and that he didn't think things through, we can admire his magnificent leadership qualities. He was a very audacious man who graduated magna cum laude from Harvard.
A great man, really, in charge of having possibly the biggest oil refinery company in the world. John Rockefeller gave $506,816,041.18 to various Baptist churches and missionaries, education boards, universities, and foundations before he died in 1937. The greatest act of generosity by this man, but what does this really mean? Rockefeller actually used these donations to improve their image and to have their name live on forever. This only leads one to believe how dangerous a man with so much power can be.
After graduating in 1960 Welch joined General Electric as a Chemical engineer and worked his way through the ranks to become the Chairman and CEO of GE, making him the eighth and youngest leader. During his 20 year reign of General Electric, one of Americas largest and most well known companies Jack Welch's management skills became almost legendary. His no nonsense leadership style gave him a reputation of being hard, even ruthless, but also fair when making business decisions. Welch had little time for bureaucracy and archaic business ways. If managers didn't change they were replaced
He in the scheme of one week goes from making 100,000$ a year to making 5,000,000$ in one case. This is all because he filed something called a mass tort (also known as a class tort). Now you might be thinking, “One case can’t get someone so rich so fast!” That is not true, the King of Torts was a good title for this book for several reasons. One being that this tort was Clay’s biggest one yet. It was the king of all the torts he has worked on.
These people he nominated and elected to be a part of his cabinet were to aid him in major decisions. Washington believed he needed a "right hand man" to say the least. The cabinet he created was his right hand man pretty much. The stability it created in the American Government was presidents down the road could further their thoughts on the decisions they would make with the help of the cabinet. Washington was had many events that tied in with the Bill of Rights and the Constitution.

Inside Job is a documentary that uses charts, interviews, and recordings to explain the global financial crisis of 2008. The movie begins with a bit of history and how the situation started. The eighties in particular were very good to the financial industry. In 1972 Morgan Stanley had about 110 personal, one local office, and working capital of 12 million dollars. By 2008, it had 50,000 workers, offices in many nations, and capital of several billion dollars.
Two years later he joined a $20 million subsidiary in Germany to help out of the crisis. Thus, he can register two successful turnarounds of struggling companies in his career, which contributed him a reputation as an excellent hands-on manager. Dimitri Petrou , 10 years older than Keller, highly cultivated and intellectual, has worked for consumer-orientated multinationals in the United States, Greece and France and joined the firm 2 years earlier. In contradistinction to Keller, Petrou practices a more delegate management style. Different opinions about the assignments and scopes led the relationship between Petrou and Keller to become more and more tense which threatened the interests and wellbeing of the company.
Within his first five years as CEO he closed 73 plants, sold 232 businesses and eliminated 132,000 workers from GE. There were opposing views to his tactics, many supported him and many did not agree with him. Many people called him "Neutron Jack" because as he rolled out his vision, GE had mass layoffs of many employers that had been loyal to the company for a long time. Somehow, Welch did fulfill the company's primary economic responsibilities to society by turning it into an exceptionally profitable conglomerate. Shareholders and managers became rich off of Welch's vision.
