To coincide with the release of my book, I've published this short piece with the Economic Historian, managed by Johnny Fulfer at the University of South Florida. Previewing one of the chapters in my book, I conceptualize Nicholas Biddle's efforts to secure a new Bank charter as one of the earliest interregional corporate lobby campaigns. Included are detailed estimates of how much the Bank spent on, and lent to, editors and congressmen, updating Govan and Remini in the process. Enjoy!
