Magazine Description

In this issue

Hamilton: An American Musical, the smash-hit Broadway show, tells a compelling tale about the first Treasury Secretary of the United States. The Spring 2017 issue of The Independent Review features a symposium about Hamilton and its potential impact on our political culture. Our contributors explore: the political uses of mythmaking about the American Founders, whether or not great art can also be great history, Hamilton’s fitness as a hero for our own age, and Hamilton’s legacy for U.S. financial history. The symposium closes with an economic historian’s critique of Hamilton the musical—in verse. Rounding out the Spring issue are articles about Canada’s economic transformation, political dysfunction and constitutional drift, the weakening of property rights in North Carolina, George Gilder’s take on where Wall Street went wrong—and six insightful book reviews.
