How would you compare the different political parties of Hamilton and Jefferson?


Answer by  Stevek863 (33)

Hamilton represented the commercial interests while Jefferson represented the agrarian interests. Commercial interests required a strong federal government, sound monetary and educational systems. Agrarian interests required cheap labor (slaves), strong states rights, and cheap money. Both favored strong national defense.
