The Founding Fathers And Our Financial System

Jun 26, 2017

With the Fourth of July coming up next week, we take a look at the world of finance through the eyes of our country’s founders – a “Founding Fathers Finance Party,” so to speak.

Joining us is Chris Desimio, a Financial Advisor with Wells Fargo Advisors in Cincinnati. He’s come up with a list of books on the topic he says will make for entertaining, instructive, profitable and non-partisan summer reading enlightenment.
