This is the third and final volume of a trilogy describing the role of the American corporate
socialists, otherwise known as the Wall Street financial elite or the Eastern Liberal
Establishment, in three significant twentieth-century historical events: the 1917 Lenin-
Trotsky Revolution in Russia, the 1933 election of Franklin D. Roosevelt in the United
States, and the 1933 seizure of power by Adolf Hitler in Germany.
Each of these events introduced some variant of socialism into a major country — i.e.,
Bolshevik socialism in Russia, New Deal socialism in the United States, and National
socialism in Germany.
Contemporary academic histories, with perhaps the sole exception of Carroll Quigley's
Tragedy And Hope, ignore this evidence. On the other hand, it is understandable that
universities and research organizations, dependent on financial aid from foundations that are
controlled by this same New York financial elite, would hardly want to support and to
publish research on these aspects of international politics. The bravest of trustees is unlikely
to bite the hand that feeds his organization.
It is also eminently clear from the evidence in this trilogy that "public-spirited businessmen"
do not journey to Washington as lobbyists and administrators in order to serve the United
States. They are in Washington to serve their own profit-maximizing interests. Their
purpose is not to further a competitive, free-market economy, but to manipulate a
politicized regime, call it what you will, to their own advantage.
It is business manipulation of Hitler's accession to power in March 1933 that is the topic of
Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler.
