The Greatest Capitalist Who Ever Lived (Public Affairs)
Friday, 27 October 2023

This book tells the story of Thomas Watson Jr., who Ralph Watson McElvenny and Marc Wortman argue is a figure more important to the creation of the modern world than Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, and Morgan. Nearly fifty years into IBM’s existence, Thomas Watson Jr. undertook the biggest gamble in business history when he “bet the farm” on the creation of the IBM System/360, the world’s first fully integrated and compatible mainframe computer.
