Christian Parenti Interview

Christian Parenti sits down with Book Salon to discuss his latest book on Alexander Hamilton

In this episode, Christian Parenti discusses his book ‘Radical Hamilton: Economic Lessons from a Misunderstood Founder’, where he rewrites the history of early America and the global economy. For much of the twentieth century, Hamilton—sometimes seen as the bad boy of the founding fathers or portrayed as the patron saint of bankers—was out of fashion.

But more recently, Hamilton has become a subject of serious interest again.
