About This Book

This is an extensively referenced exploration of the influence outside the United States of the ideas of Alexander Hamilton (1755-1804), the country's first Secretary to the Treasury. The economic policies in Germany of Bismarck (1815-1895) are reviewed and related to the Hamiltonian ideas. Similarly the 20th-century economic development of Japan above all in the post-1945 era. Hamilton's central principle that the state's governance must include authority over financial and market activity in "free market economies" is seen to be very relevant to future prosperity in both the United States and Japan, and also very relevant in the ongoing 2007-2009 financial crises. With tabulated data, appended documents, bibliography and index.
