Robber barrons are not the same as carpetbaggers. Robber barrons is another name for captains of industry, these were leaders like Andrew Carnegie and John D. Rockefeller. They ran businesses during the Guilded Age. Carpet baggers are notherners who traveled south during reconstruction to take part in politics in the south. They were not recieved very well by southerners who were experiencing backlash from the Civil War.
The Robber Barons and the "Bosses".
In the eyes of the tradesmen who were usually their victims: everything. A tradesman who fell into his hands could consider himself lucky to survive the meeting, at best with only half of what he had before. Also, they were no Robin Hoods who stole from the rich to give to the poor. The robber barons also stole from the wretch to give to the peer, that is, themselves.
Robber Barons were wealthy businessmen who were known to use harsh practices to gain their wealth. They often used child or cheap labor, did not adhere to safety regulations and worked their employees long hours in order to keep production high.
People accused them of using unfair business practices.
The Southerners criticized the carpetbaggers. Why? well because the carpetbaggers were renovating the South as if they were bringing parts of the North in order to develop South as the North

Robber Barons. Or Captains of Industry. I'm not sure which one.
Robber barons where men such as big tycoons who held monopolies over others, meaning robber barons where greedy/selfish people who did not give back to society or treat people as well as "captains," captains were those wealthy that were looked upon as leaders.
they are on the same list because they both talk about the samething. :))
