The founders and finance: how Hamilton, Gallatin, and other immigrants forged a new economy.

In 1776 the United States government started out on a shoestring and quickly went bankrupt fighting its War of Independence against Britain. This book tells the story of how foreign-born financial specialists--immigrants--solved the fiscal crisis and set the United States on a path to long-term economic success.
