Whigs and Democrats held totally different attitudes toward the changes brought about by the market, banks, and commerce. The Democrats tended to view society as a seamless conflict between “the people”—farmers, planters, and workers—and a set of greedy aristocrats. This “paper money aristocracy” of bankers and investors manipulated the banking industry for their own profit, Democrats claimed, and sapped the nation’s virtue by encouraging speculation and also the desire for sudden, unearned wealth.
