American Big Business in Britain and Germany

Princeton University Press

This chapter begins the story of the American–British–German business and political relationship in the year 1900. It assesses the prevailing attitudes toward this transitional period in terms of press commentary, before considering political and economic relations in the age of late-nineteenth-century imperialism. While positive visions of the future tended to predominate, the papers also contained evidence of the conflicts that were smoldering within the societies of Britain, Germany, and the United States. From here, the chapter turns to a rich archival source for the extent of the European–American constellation in the form of accounts made by financial expert Frank Vanderflip as well as by journalist William Stead.

Keywords:   North Atlantic Business Triangle, 1900, nineteenth-century imperialism, Frank Vanderflip, William Stead, Wilhemine Industrial System, German political system, foreign markets
