The First US National Bank: Hamilton vs Jefferson

Posted by Orrin Woodward on January 15, 2014

Thomas DiLorenzo shares how the First USA National Bank came into existence. Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson, two of the brightest and best American minds, disputed whether a national bank was within the boundaries of the Constitution. Unfortunately, for liberty’s sake, Hamilton won approval for the national bank and America tilted towards Statism. It is difficult to protect freedoms one does not understand. Hence, learning the early history of the American founding is a great start in understanding and defending the freedoms American’s hold dear. LIFE Leadership seeks to learn and share truth in the fields of leadership, liberty, and life.

    I keep hearing, ” You don’t know what you don’t know.” and I love the saying about the ostrich sticking his head in the sand does not change the Lions plan for dinner.
    The Constitution used to be “we, the people”, but laziness, disinterest, and distraction, is no excuse for what our nation has become.

    Hi Orrin

    In the case of Alexander Hamilton it is interesting to note that no matter how intelligent, educated, brilliant and cultivated a politician or a statesman is, provided that his political philosophy is not based on the foundation of natural law, the consequences of implementing any of his policies (contrary to natural law)can only initiate decline within society. Demille’s latest book (We Hold These Truth To Be Self-Evident) is good frame of reference to understand the critical relevance of keep the natural laws as the center piece of any policy. I am grateful for Life Leadership and Demille for this book.

  3. Thanks, Orrin, for posting this. I’m a fan of Thomas DiLorenzo. I also really enjoyed his research on Lincoln.

    Hi Orrin,

    We must seek first to understand before we can truly try and fix something. We must know the good and bad and what went wrong.

    Life Leadership is great at helping us with this and your book is going to be awesome!

    God Bless

  5. Hi Orrin,
    This proves once again when we lose our economic freedoms, we are bound to lose our Spiritual and Political freedoms as well.
    Central Banking was a counter-revolution curse with Hamilton full energy in government. This was a new mercantilist scheme to tie large amount of debt with affluent people in government and also control liberties. Hamilton and his disciples including Chief Justice Marshall try to keep people in bondage and use central banking as a source of patronage to the benefits of their political cartel.
    I like the Austrian Economic School and The Mises Institute as great places to pursue my self-directed economic education. I’m above all thankful to have been on board of the Life Leadership Train.
    God Bless,

    Roosevelt Jean-Francois

    Wow! Thank you for sharing … Again Amazing …You and George have taught me more about economics and History than I could ever imagine!! I have not read much on Alexander Hamilton .. but this really set the tone for the person he was. As far as economics this was fantastic often times we are taught important dates and line them up with events but the different dates and events never really coincide with each other. I love the information you share and I am soo thankful … because you share information that puts it all together and makes it understandable and really makes you wake up and say …. oohhh ouch … something needs to change!! Thank you Orrin!
