Joseph Ellis on American Creation

Tweet [1]

The latest EconTalk is a conversation with Joseph Ellis [2] talking about his latest book, American Creation [3]. I learned a lot from both the conversation and the book. Probably the most interesting discussion was about Madison’s sense of failure after the Constitutional Convention and what might have happened had that Convention not occurred at all. There is also some fascination stories about Washington’s attempts to carve out a safe harbor for Native Americans.
