But in pushing for a financial plan that so overtly favoured the wealthy, Hamilton shattered any feeling of unity and solidarity. His financial plan rewarded those engaged in financial speculation, which drove more to take money from the pockets of the poor and funnel it directly into their expanding coffers.
Hamilton knew this; yet pushed the plan through anyway. He had seen how the same policies had created a corrupt ruling financial class in the British Empire, which had diverted resources away from the public good and into the hands of their private corporations.
His plan was highly divisive, even at the time. He knew that once implemented, it would immediately divide the nation into numerous political factions that made political decisions based on their own financial self-interests.
His logic was also flawed. Only one out of 4,000 Americans were bondholders of federal debts. There were simply too few of them to preserve unity. As Robert Livingston put it at the time: "This supposed cement will appear to consist of untempered mortar." 
Hamilton's financial plan, therefore, did not make the nation more stable or strengthen the nation. It created divisions and rifts between the haves and the have-nots (many of the have-nots were located in the Southern states which would go on to oppose the northern government in the civil war). It is no coincidence that the nation was mired by civil war just seven decades later. The economic and social policies implemented by the early governments of Washington and Jefferson fostered division and stoked the flames of tension.
