The paper shows how the story of American business has continued to be one of increasing size and growth ever since the Great Depression and World War II. The paper looks at how the postwar boom created an America reliant upon large corporations and a government that supported those corporations, although it attempted to regulate corporate excesses. The paper concludes that as corporate entities have grown larger, the practice of government regulation of business size and ethics has become more difficult.
