Electricity

Another man too had a dream;dream to control and monopolize all the available assets, electricity, railroads, steel works and communications;to only allow the person who could afford to pay him for the use of these assets to ply by them, to maximize his gain at the expense of the common man. This man who had this dream, held major stake in all of Thomas Edison’s companies and was fuming at the loss that Dr. Tesla had caused him by winning the bid for the lighting of the World Columbian Exposition. Dr. Tesla winning the contract for the Niagara Falls power plant had further added insult to injury of this man. The man was now livid with rage. The man was, John Pierpont Morgan or J. P. Morgan.

J. P. Morgan was an American financier, banker, and art collector who dominated corporate finance and industrial consolidation. At the height of Morgan’s career during the early 1900s, he and his partners had financial investments in many large corporations and had significant influence over the nation’s high finance and Congress members.Morgan’s total wealth was about $41.5 billion at that time. That is about $2.6 trillion as per today’s standards. This was the clout J.P. Morgan had and hence everyone feared him; everyone but Dr. Nikola Tesla.

Power Grid Failure & Its Social Implications

By now everyone of us must have come to know about the collapse of eastern, northeastern and northern electricity grids that knocked out power in 20 of 29 states and affected some 620 million Indians (around half of India’s population and 9% of the world’s population) causing havoc at train stations, airports, hospitals and on roads. For instance, Delhi Metro had to evacuate passengers from trains that stopped mid-journey. The
