Matthew Murray Dayabout this book: At a time when history is being cancelled, it's time we preserve our history.
It's been 75 years since West Texas oil producers helped fuel America's victory in World War II.
Right now, there is a debate over how much regulation that government officials should impose on business owners. At the very heart of the controversy is the balance between a real or perceived need to be met by government and business productivity. Today, the COVID-19 pandemic has brought the business/government dynamic to the forefront. 75 years ago, though, a different crisis highlighted how tense this dynamic really was. How much oil did America really need for everyday consumption? How much oil would it take to fuel the machines of war? How effective were oil restrictions in Texas? What were the implications for agriculture?
The answers can be found in Fueling Victory at Home. Almost a year ago, I released this book through Amazon.com. The timing of this book could not be more appropriate, especially for the times in which we live.
Celebrate our history. Preserve our past.
Feel like a winner today.
