'Cotto/Gottfried': Henry Ford: Who was he, really? 'Ford Men' author Christopher Whalen explains

Henry Ford was one of America's most successful businessmen, as well as one of its most controversial; not on account of his economic practices, but the man's political views. In our day and age, the latter oft-overshadow the former in public discourse. The story of how America's most famous automobile manufacturer came to be is far more intriguing than many might imagine. Just what happened and why? Christopher Whalen is an author and investment banker who -- without exaggeration -- wrote the book on Ford Motors' founding: 'Ford Men: From Inspiration to Enterprise.' He joins us on this episode of 'Cotto/Gottfried' to discuss his book, its relevance, and much more.
