A Nation Wholly Free: The Elimination of the National Debt in the Age of Jackson
Once. Once upon a time in America, our nation was free of debt. It lasted for two years and ten months. Carl Lane tells the story of how this happened in his book titled, A Nation Wholly Free. You’ll be interested to learn that one consequence of the achievement of this milestone was our polarization into two oppositional political parties, divided on how to deal with surplus government funds, and what the proper role is for our central government. Sound familiar? Any reader interested in American history and economics should consider reading this book.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
