      Welfare capitalism helped maintain that upper hand. Professor Jacoby disagrees with scholars who argue that welfare capitalism — as it was understood early in this century — died during the Great Depression, when most companies were forced by market conditions to slow production, lay off workers and suspend benefit programs.

      A manager at Dutchess cautioned that "books must be kept open to workers" if they were to become "partners in industry." SCC and other companies also adopted a slew of welfare programs that provided monetary benefits: pensions, stock ownership plans, paid . This is a book about Washington Consensus capitalism and the controversies its encroachment causes in Japan and Germany. Many people in both those countries share the assumptions dominant today in Britain and America that managers should be intent solely on creating shareholder value, and that shareholders' financial logic alone should determine who buys what company on the stock exchange.

      Welfare capitalists tried to win the loyalty of workers. This was done by keeping the workers away from their community and were mixed with the workers of different race .   Managers are therefore central players in Jacoby's story, nimble enough to reshape welfare capitalism even as laws, markets, and workers changed dramatically. On several occasions, Jacoby claims that his book provides guidance for the reader seeking to understand the modern American corporation.
