Alexander Hamilton was many things: an immigrant, Washington's right-hand man during the American Revolution, an abolitionist, and founder of both the U.S. Coast Guard and the New York Post -- and the nation's first Treasury secretary. But in addition to his already lengthy resume, Hamilton left an indelible mark on our economic history, moreso than any of our other Founding Fathers. The man developed the blueprint for a competitive American economy: 1791's Report on Manufactures. Welcome to the inaugural Hardhat Hamilton podcast. Hosted by Alliance for American Manufacturing President Scott Paul, the series will explore Hamilton's original plans for a nascent American economy, and the lessons from them that we can apply today.
