Storyboard Text

  • Hello J.D. Rockefeller. Thank you for meeting with me to discuss the growing issues with this Industrial Era.
  • In trusts, trustees trustees can effectively manage and control an entire industry. This is leading to monopolies in more industries. It is important for me to protect consumers from abuses.
  • As you know given the Sherman antitrust Act I have recently employed, I do not believe that monopolies are benefitting anyone other than wealthy industrialists like yourself.
  • But the economic expansion has been undeniable. Big business is booming and technology is advancing. This is mainly due to the major figures of power in the top industries.
  • But wealth as great as yours shows the financial inequality of an era. And worker's rights are not a priority for the industry giants. Low wages, discrimination, and exploitation are marking our time
  • You make us out to be robber barons. In my time, I have given some of my wealth away and donated to numerous charities
  • Well speaking for my own business. Standard Oil has found mays to make the oil process less damaging to the economy and environment then before I monopolized it.
  • Well it was enlightening to have this conversation with you. Thank you for coming.
