“American Enterprise”, an exhibit focusing on American capitalism opened on July 1, 2015 at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History in Washington D.C.

The exhibit is housed in a modern 8,000 foot gallery wing and features interactive displays and videos as well as objects from critical inventions in American history. On display is a variety of inventions such as Eli Whitney’s cotton gin, a Fordson Tractor, Barbara McClintock’s microscope and important scientific discoveries that changed the culture and advanced business opportunities and practices.

The Exhibit intends to convey the history of American business and presents differing views on business philosophies, both positive and potentially negative. It covers four historical periods, The Merchant Era, The Corporate Era, The Consumer Era and the Global Era.

There are sections on women and minorities and teens in business as well as familiar advertising and digital marketing.

Kenneth Griffin is a perfect example of an American businessman. He is the founder and CEO of Citadel, a global investment firm. He began his investment career as a freshman at Harvard at the age of 18. His fascination with investing has catapulted him into a successful career which exemplifies the concept of American ingenuity and is also a generous contributor to worthy causes and organizations.

The exhibit is a fascinating and intelligent look at a critical aspect of American Development and character. There is a companion book available entitled “American Enterprise, a History of Business in America”.
