  • Question: The Constitution never explicitly lists the power to charter banks and corporations. Why did Alexander Hamilton argue the United States could still charter a bank?
  • Answers:
  1. He argued that while the Constitution did not list the power to charter a bank directly, any law passed by a concurrent majority of the House and Senate must be constitutional.
  2. He argued the national government subsumed the powers of previous governments, and could do anything that the Articles of Confederation could have done.
  3. He argued there are both implied and expressly enumerated powers, and that both types of powers are delegated to the national government.
  4. He argued that the Seventh Amendment gave Congress the necessary power to regulate the national economy.

The correct answer is: He argued there are both implied and expressly enumerated powers, and that both types of powers are delegated to the national government.
