The Pulitzer family’s strategies in the 18-19th centuries In the late feudal era the Pulitzer family became the most significant Jewish merchant-dynasty in Makó. The first three generations’ most important strategy was to maintain the merchant status. Baruch Simon as a retailer established the financial and social position of the family. Although at the beginning they advanced the rural merchants traditional path, several elements of the modern entrepreneurial mentality can be discovered in their activities. A thorough situation analysis, the highest degree of adjustment, detailed knowledge of market conditions, creativity and readiness to make initiatives all explain their success. From the beginning of the 1850s, demographic trends were intensified which were not favourable for the family. In addition, the members of the fourth generation’s indifference to the merchant profession, as well as the assimilation challenges provided by the new carrier patterns contributed to the end of their merchant firms in the last third of the 19th century. New paths of the social rise opened up for them: they became landown-ers or chose an intellectual career. While the first pattern served the integra-tion to the ruling elite, the latter served expressly the modernization.
