Andrew Jackson and the Bank War

from Andrew Jackson's Hermitage

Program image

When Andrew Jackson was elected in 1828, he brought the promise to reform government with him, and high on his list was the “corrupt” and “monstrous” Bank of the United States. In a protracted battle over a national banking system Jackson reshaped not only the nation’s economy, but also the role of the Office of the President, in ways that reverberate today. This interactive program examines how Jackson took a political issue to the public and challenged the Supreme Court's decision on McCulloch vs. Maryland, and how history continues to repeat itself

Standards Alignment

National Standards

U.S. History

NSS-USH.5-12.3
Understands the institutions and practices of government created during the Revolution and how they were revised between 1787 and 1815 to create the foundation of the American political system based on the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

NSS-USH.5-12.4
Understands the extension, restriction, and reorganization of political democracy after 1800.

Economics

NSS-EC.5-8.10
Banks and other financial institutions channel funds from savers to borrowers and investors.

NSS-EC.5-8.16
In the United States, the federal government enforces antitrust laws and regulations to try to maintain effective levels of competition in as many markets as possible; frequently, however, laws and regulations also have unintended effects.

NSS-EC.9-12.8
-Demand for a product changes when there is a change in consumers’ incomes or preferences, or in the prices of related goods or services, or in the number of consumers in a market.
-Supply of a product changes when there are changes in either the prices of the productive resources used to make the good or service, the technology used to make the good or service, the profit opportunities available to producers by selling other goods or services, or the number of sellers in a market.
-Changes in supply or demand cause relative prices to change; in turn, buyers and sellers adjust their purchase and sales decisions.

NSS-EC.9-12.16
-Externalities exist when some of the costs and benefits associated with production and consumption fall on someone other than the producers or consumers of the product.
-A government policy to correct a market imperfection is not justified economically if the cost of implementing it exceeds its expected net benefits.

NSS-EC.9-12.17
-Citizens, government employees, and elected officials do not always bear the costs of their political decisions. This often leads to policies whose costs outweigh their benefits for society.
-Incentives exist for political leaders to implement policies that disperse costs widely over large groups of people and benefit small, and politically powerful, groups of people.
-Incentives exist for political leaders to favor programs that entail immediate benefits and deferred costs; few incentives favor programs promising immediate costs and deferred benefits, even though the latter programs are sometimes economically more effective than the former programs.
