Centennial Speaker Series: Joseph Calandro Jr. on Jay Gould and the Union Pacific from the Panic of 1873-1880
No one in the United States’ financial or business history is as misunderstood and under-appreciated as Jay Gould. This presentation will assess Gould’s skills as a corporate executive following his distressed investment in, and subsequent control of, the Union Pacific Railroad (UP). The UP was in distress due to volatility emanating from the infamous financial panic of 1873. Gould executed his turnaround in an economy devoid of monetary stimulus, without a government bailout, and under pressure from the government to pay back the firm’s public loans. Gould employed many modern techniques in his turnaround that are relevant to 21st-century executives. His example also serves as an important historical reminder that successful executives do not require government bailouts.

This includes loans that finance the cross-border export of goods and services. Trade Finance differs from other types of lending, as transactions must have an identifiable source of repayment - cash payments when goods have been delivered or title to the underlying goods when they have not yet been delivered.
