Product Overview

The Untold History of America''s First Debt and its Relevance in Today''s Economy. .

Wright tackles the thorny question of what makes countries wealthy through the lens of a U.S. addiction: government indebtedness.
-Simon Constable, .

Think that our burgeoning national debt is something new? We''ve been down this road before. One Nation Under Debt traces the roots of today''s looming fiscal crisis back to the birth of the republic and shows how the founding fathers averted financial Armageddon.
-William Bernstein. .

This is economic history both high and low-from Alexander Hamilton, the wizard who put America''s finances in order, to the men and women who secured America''s future by buying its bonds.
-Richard Brookhiser. .

This book is magnetic. Wright regales us with the bankers and merchants, slaveholders and bondholders, and pen-named politicians of the Early Republic.
-James W. Mueller, Ph.D., Chief Historian, Independence National Historical Park.
