If a plan is pushed (see the underlined sentence), is it executed already or just proposed?
Thanks in advance.
On September 18, 1873, uncertainty turned to panic when a major bank, Jay Cooke & Co., declared bankruptcy. The firm, which became prominent marketing Union bonds during the Civil War, was pushing a plan to build a second transcontinental railroad. Unable to attract enough backing, Cooke collapsed.
The plan wasn't the reason the firm collapsed. The firm collapsed because the plan was NOT executed (and presumably they had no other good plans).
