Where: Down Town Association, 60 Pine Street, New York, NY 10005

Speaker, Luke Thompson holds a
Ph.D. in Political Science from Yale University. In his dissertation, "Constitutional Duty," he explored the politics created by presidential exercises of crisis power and drew upon on the ideas of Alexander Hamilton and others. His writing has appeared in National Review. The talk will be about Hamilton’s Presidential vision based on Colonial precedents, the ideas of the Scottish Enlightenment, Hamilton’s being a “New Light” Presbyterian, and his practical experience in the Revolutionary War. Hamilton underestimated the extent to which the energetic presidency he created would motivate Congress to establish its own means of counterbalancing the President. This consequence forged Hamilton’s vision of the Presidency, as well as legislative branch checks and balances.
