Biography

As one of the young republic's most brilliant lawyers, he was an influential delegate to the American constitutional convention and the leading author of "The Federalist Papers" that helped to influence skeptical neo-Yorkers to ratify the U.S. Constitution. As the first and most influential of America's finance ministers, he is also the foundation for a healthy U.S. economy. He established America's first bank, introduced the public credit, and laid the foundations of American capitalism by establishing stock and commodity markets. In order to defend their actions against criticism from Thomas Jefferson and James Madison Hamilton established America's first political party; Federalist Papers, which he dominated until his death after a duel with his political opponent Aaron Burr.

Alexander Hamilton is often seen as one of America's founders. He advocated the principles of a strong centralized federal government and the broad interpretation of the constitution that should characterize the republic's early phase. This was linked to his support for a strong defense, strong institutions for business, regulated capitalism and what would later be known as the "American system". This implied a focus on economic growth through proteksjonstoll, subsidies to industry and other measures which he recommended in his Report on Manufactures of the United States Congress. In this he stood against the laissez-faire capitalism, weak central government and free trade as the Democratic-Republican Party founded by Thomas Jefferson advocated.
