Hamilton Versus Wall Street
Hamilton: An American Musical has captured the imagination of millions. As a result, the nation now has a shot at educating these fans on his core ideas—the American system of economics. "In our time of crumbling infrastructure, anemic economic growth, and dysfunctional government, Spannaus points to a better path, the American System of economic policy initiated by Alexander Hamilton more than two centuries ago. Hamilton encouraged long-term investment and productivity growth, and discouraged short-term speculation and financial instability. His policies made America great, and a return to them can make America great again." --Richard Sylla, author of Alexander Hamilton: The Illustrated Biography It was Hamilton's concept of public credit, devoted to building the productive powers of labor, that the Washington, Lincoln, and Franklin Roosevelt administrations used to bring prosperity to our nation. His system remains the chief challenge to the Wall Street/City of London methods that dominate economic thinking today. Therein lies the timeliness of this book.

The Political Economy of the American Revolution

release date: Sep 04, 2015
The Political Economy of the American Revolution
Do You Know What the American System Of Economics is All About? Most Americans actually don't—and it's not because they are actually stupid. It's because there's been a systematic suppression of the truth, to the point where it's been written out of the history books and schools throughout the nation. The Political Economy of the American Revolution was first published in 1977 in order to revive the truth about American history. Newspaper editor Nancy Spannaus and historian Christopher White assembled the crucial writings which defined the American System, as a continuation of the Italian Golden Renaissance tradition, and a war against British imperialism and free trade. They produced a book of readings which served as an assault on the Treason School of American history. This new edition adds some crucial materials, but its guts are the same: the works of Alexander Hamilton and his French predecessor, Jean-Baptiste Colbert. These are writings you either can't find anywhere else, or which are hard to find. They are supplemented by introductory essays by Spannaus and White. The scholar and the conscientious citizen will find this book indispensable. The American war against British imperialist methods continues today, and must be won.
