Section: 01  

What was Alexander Hamilton's contribution to the early American republic? This course combines concepts and models from introductory economics with a mix of primary sources and modern-day scholarship. After a survey of the colonial American economy, we will focus on the role of economics in the American Revolution, the movement from the Articles of Confederation to the Constitution, and major economic policy debates of the early republic. Throughout, students will encounter the views and influence of the first U.S. Treasury Secretary, Alexander Hamilton. By the end of the course, students will be equipped to assess Hamilton's economic legacy.
