Thanks for this Steve, this is thought-provoking. Small correction - Adams interests were not agricultural, but legal. He was first and foremost an attorney, and concerned primarily with legal principles. His peers in the New England elite were merchants (Hancock), artisans (Revere), and professional revolutionaries (S Adams, a failed businessman). Hamilton's financial genius surpassed these, but they were key parts of the emerging Federalist party that were opposed by the Virginia planters who formed the Democratic-Republican bloc, which became the recognizably Democratic Party 40 years later under Jackson.
