Hamilton and American Finance

Hamilton and American Finance

  • Case
Abstract

Alexander Hamilton is said to have invented the future. At a time when the young United States of America was disorganized and bankrupt, Hamilton could see that the nation would become a powerful economy. In his innovations of a national bank, a national currency, and strategies for dealing with the nation's first financial crises, he created what historian Richard Sylla has called a “financial revolution.”
