I don't know who this Prescott is but I would suggest you avail yourself of one of the most important books on politics, economics and history ever written, namely Max Weber's "The protestant ethic and the spirit of capitalism". Probably in some sort of top 5 list with Capital and On Liberty. You will realise that the religion plays a very large part indeed in everything American, particularly attitude towards work.
