Even more surprising is the fact that the theory was invented by none other than the first finance minister (Treasury secretary) of the country, Alexander Hamilton. Hamilton developed this theory (and even coined the name) in his 1791 report to Congress, called The Report on the Subject of Manufactures. The report was not simply about tariffs. In fact, it was probably the world’s first comprehensive development-planning document—arguing for not just tariffs and subsidies for infant industries but a whole range of policy interventions to promote economic development, including the developments of the banking industry, the government bond market, and the patent system.
The present chapter is organized in the following way. First, I discuss how the 2008 financial crisis has shown the double standards that the developed countries have been applying in their dealings with the developing countries. When the developed countries were faced with a crisis situation, they deployed expansionary macroeconomic policies, bailout or even nationalization of key firms and banks, and increased subsidies—all policies that they have been preventing developing countries from using through their loan/aid conditionalities and the international trading rules in the past three decades.
But the combination of the undesirability of current financial logics and the fact of a moment of crisis does point to a window of opportunity. At the heart of this opportunity is the increasing recognition of a need to focus on the work that needs to be done to house all people, to clean our water, to green our buildings and cities and to build only zero-emission buildings, to develop sustainable agriculture, including urban agriculture, to provide health care to all, and so on. This work could employ all those who are interested in working.
