“I recommend this book to my fellow Jeffersonians.” ~ Ron Paul
Two of the most influential figures in American History. Two opposing political philosophies. Two radically different visions for America.
How did we go from the Jeffersonian ideal of limited government to the bloated, imperialist system of Alexander Hamilton’s design? Thomas J. DiLorenzo provides the troubling answer in Hamilton’s Curse. DiLorenzo reveals how Hamilton, first as a delegate to the Constitutional Convention and later as the nation’s first treasury secretary, promoted an agenda of nationalist glory and interventionist economics. By debunking the Hamiltonian myths, DiLorenzo exposes an uncomfortable truth: The American people are no longer the masters of our government but its servants.
