My dissertation examines the relationship between the international trade regime and institutional and intellectual transformations in American politics. Through this, I aim to offer a fresh look into the history of neoliberal international economic law by turning away from the recent focus on intellectual history of European ordoliberalism, and by renewing the focus on the institutions of American political economy, abiding contests over the role of the American State in economic activity, and the problem of international development for American diplomacy.
