"This British-born businessman, Samuel Insull, made cheap public utilities a reality for Americans, bringing them electricity and an improved quality of life.

"To pay for expansion, Insull had sold low-price bonds and stock. Over a million middle-class Americans bought in -- but their investments were made worthless by the Great Depression. Overnight, Insull went from a hero on the cover of Time magazine to the villain who had stolen the people's money."
