Course Description:

This seminar will focus on the history and law of the financial infrastructure of our nation’s government. Key issues addressed will include the national debt, the budget process, taxation, central banking, and economic growth. While only portions of these issues are explicitly addressed in the text of the Constitution (which, for instance, grants Congress the power to “borrow money on the credit of the United States”), all are of a Constitutional character, for their resolution requires institutions that are stable yet flexible over time.
