The Square deal was a unique manufacturing city program run by the Endicott Johnson Corporation in upstate NY.  In short it was a New Deal / Great Society / idealistic conceived structure where if you took care of your company, your company would take care of you, and all your needs right down to starting your child’s first bank account.

One of the things that i’m finding in the research for my writing project is that everything old is new again, or more simply, cycles always repeat.  So what happened in America was repeated in some ways in Japan and we are now seeing the seeds in China.  And just like in America it may not workout so well for the people or companies involved.
