Describe Hamilton's programs, and how they proposed to strengthen national power.
Funding - Paper money was started to pay some military and others who had not been paid (from the war). The money was just a promise to pay but became one of the ways many people lived then. Government bonds were also started. The bond would say on this date this amount of money with interest would be paid to the owner.
Assumption - The states were in debt and many believed the federal government should help pay off the states debt. Some states (Virginia) did not like the idea as they had paid off their own debt and was still being asked to pay off other states debt.
First National Bank - Bankers who would handle day to day transactions for the government. There would not be a problem of bad paper money anymore as the national bank would only give banks paper money for whatever gold they actually had.
Subsidizing Economic Growth - To help diversify the country Hamilton wanted the government to help farmers, merchants, factories etc to move into smaller cities to help build them up to be larger.
Agrarian Suspicions; The Whiskey Rebellion - Hamilton said if the government wanted people to follow rules they needed to enforce them no matter right or wrong.
