Alexander Hamilton's Economic Plan
In a talk titled, “The Hamilton Scheme: Enemies and Allies in the Creation of an American Economy,” historian and author William Hogeland discussed Alexander Hamilton’s financial ideas. Mr. Hogeland examines how Hamilton’s first goal was paying off the debt accumulated during the Revolutionary War. Selected by President George Washington in 1789, Alexander Hamilton served as the first secretary of the Treasury until January 1795. The Alexander Hamilton Awareness Society and the Museum of American Finance co-hosted this event. close
