The Aviator
A few days ago, the Wall Street Journal had a piece defending and telling the story of Juan Trippe, the antagonist in The Aviator. Bill Dyer (who has a pretty cool story of his own) notes that this piece is available to everyone online. What struck me about Trippe's career is that the earlier part was largely characterised by successful rent-seeking and the later part by innovation, vision, and execution. You usually see it done the other way around.
