We now have a deadline for my GoFundMe project to promote Hamilton Versus Wall Street at Book Expo in America in New York City. I have determined that I need to have the bulk of the funds by the end of March, in order to secure the booth and advertising which have been offered to me.
I am very grateful to those of you who have contributed already. We’ve made a respectable start, but there’s a long way to go.
Probably many of you have not had a chance to read the book. You can easily access it, in e-book or soft cover form, from Amazon, iUniverse, Barnes & Noble, or Google . (Google lets you read 3 chapters!)
There’s no question about it: Hamilton Versus Wall Street is provocative. I am challenging the typical view that Hamilton was a “money man,” and asserting that he developed the American System ideas that built the physical economy of our country. Many Hamilton lovers disagree; and many who think they are advocating “progressive” policies are woefully, even dangerously, ignorant of those ideas.
But the respected economics professor Richard Sylla, who authored the book Alexander Hamilton: The Illustrated Biography, wrote the following promotion:
“In our time of crumbling infrastructure, anemic economic growth, and dysfunctional government, Spannaus points to a better path, the American System of economic policy initiated by Alexander Hamilton more than two centuries ago. Hamilton encouraged long-term investment and productivity growth, and discouraged short-term speculation and financial instability. His policies made America great, and a return to them can make America great again.”
Can we get the evidence for that conclusion circulating broadly in the public? Book Expo America is the place to do it.
So I urge those of you who haven’t yet contributed to do so soon, and those who have, to contact friends and/or give again. Remember, small donations add up.
I hope you agree that this is an opportunity too important to pass up.
