Federalist No. 32 is an essay by Alexander Hamilton, the thirty-second of The Federalist Papers. It was published on January 2, 1788 under the pseudonym Publius, the name under which all The Federalist papers were published.

The Federalist Papers, as a foundation text of constitutional interpretation, are frequently cited by American jurists. Of all the essays, No. 32 is the fifth-most frequently cited.[1]
