Over the last half century, the Bush family has emerged as an American political dynasty. The family has produced Congressmen, Senators, Governors of two of our largest states and two Presidents. As the 2016 Presidential campaign starts to gear up, there is the possibility of yet another Bush candidacy and Presidency. So it is instructive to see how the family has operated in and out of office around questions economic.
Long before and well into when the Bush name was associated with public office holding, Bushes were involved in another great American institution of trust and development – banks. Indeed the Bush family made its fortune through involvement with banks and financial institutions.
