J. P. Morgan was a ruthless capitalist and financier and one of the most powerful men in US history.  He had enough wealth to buy every state west of the Mississippi River. He personally saved the United States Government from insolvency not once but twice, & infused the gov't with 3.5 million ounces of gold in 1893. In both cases he made a huge profit. He was known as a humorless genius. 1 word from him could make/break reputations. He formed General Electric, US Steel & owned the Titanic.
