The battle over the First Bank of the United States wasn’t only about banking. It was more fundamentally a constitutional debate. In this interview on the “And If Love Remains” podcast, I talk about the battle over Alexander Hamilton’s bank and the ramifications that continue to impact us today.
During the interview, Mike Leavitt and I talk about central banking and how it fuels big government, the debate surrounding America’s first national bank, and why Hamilton’s victory in the argument over the bank undermined the Constitutional system. Along the way, we also discuss America’s intended constitutional structure and the work of the Tenth Amendment Center.
