John D. Rockefeller, Standard Oil, and an Undeniable Fact:

Historian H. W. Brands

Historian H. W. Brands

“No one could stand up to Standard in a price war. Those who surrendered without a fight often were glad they did, for when they took their payment in Standard stock, Rockefeller subsequently made them wealthy. Those who chose to fight usually wished they hadn’t.” From H. W. Brand’s The Reckless Decade, America in the 1890s, Copyright © 1995 by H. W. Brands, University of Chicago Press edition 2002, Page 55.
