What he did for America today? He set up this economic system that revolves around debt that haunts us. Short term, it was effective (bringing America back on its feet), but long term, it was just too short-sighted. At least he was forward in his thinking. I like Hamilton, but I don't think we should praise him for how America has turned out today.
You should considering building a forum here or something to discuss history related to your comic strips. I'm sure a lot of history enthusiasts are reading this (like me).
Whaaaat. Hamilton intended for the public debt to be eventually eradicated. And it's not like Hamilton has guided our entire economic policy since he first took office. His policies were made in a particular time and place for a particular purpose. How can we blame him for the state of our economy now?
