February 23 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm EST

This session will be led by Visiting Assistant Professor of Economics Zackary Klingensmith, Ph.D. The Constitutional Convention of 1787 was a time of critical decision-making for the fledgling new government of the United States. The founders were required to compromise on many important issues to prevent the failure of the American experiment. While these compromises saved the union, the founders kicked the can down the road on divisive issues such as slavery which ultimately resulted in the American Civil War. What lessons can be learned and how is this type of compromise still affecting us today?
