19th Century U.S.
Political Economy
History of Capitalism

My work specializes in the early national period of the United States with a focus on the relationship between capitalism and democracy as shown through tariff politics. I explore the importance of the emergence of protectionism in the United States and the circumstances that made trade a significant issue for early Americans. I have also examined financial crises in early America as a window into understanding popular economic thought.
