Eric D. Hilt

Wellesley College

Hilt will write three papers examining the role of investment banks and other financial institutions in the U.S. economy from 1900-1925. He will analyze legislation enacted during this period as well as newly collected data on all NYSE-traded companies. Hilt will study the effect of ties between bankers and nonfinancial companies in order to understand the consequences of financial regulations intended to limit the power of bankers.
