Hamilton's Blessing: The Extraordinary Life and Times of Our National Debt
Diane Publishing Company, 1997 - 214 psl.
In the late 18th century, a national debt was unthinkable; for Alexander Hamilton, it was an opportunity, & he made it forever a part of our government's fiscal strategy. This book offers fascinating details that traces the history of our government & of economic thinking over 200 years, including histories of our banking & tax systems, the invention of the war bond, & how Washington became our nation's capital. Also tells the story of the people & events that have influenced the debt: Stephen Girard, who personally arranged the financing for the War of 1812; Jay Cooke, whose invention of the war bond kept the Union afloat during the Civil War; John Maynard Keynes, whose theories have held sway for more than 50 years; & others.
