316 | William D. Cohan: The Rise & Unimaginable Fall of General Electric, America's Iconic Corporation

William D. Cohan, founding partner of Puck, writer at large for Airmail, former investment banker, and author of Power Failure: The Rise and Fall of an American Icon, joins The Realignment to discuss his autopsy of General Electric, from its founding by Thomas Edison to its fall in the 2010s, the keys to impactful business journalism in an age of scandals from SBF/FTX to Elizabeth Holmes, what (if anything ) this story says about the capitalist system, and where responsibility for the GE's fall lies.
