     For almost fifty years, from 1880 to 1930, financial capitalism approximated a feudal structure in which two great powers, centered in New York, dominated a number of lesser powers, both in New York and in provincial cities. No description of this structure as it existed in the 1920’s can be given in a brief compass, since it infiltrated all aspects of American life and especially all branches of economic life.
