Williams, John:

THE NATIONAL POLICY. TRACTS FOR THE TIMES---NUMBER 2. SUBJECT: BRITISH FREE TRADE, HOW IT AFFECTS THE AGRICULTURE AND THE FOREIGN COMMERCE OF THE UNION. CONDUCTED BY JOHN WILLIAMS, EDITOR OF "THE IRON AGE." New York: The Office of "The Iron Age." [and] Chicago: John A.

1866 Norton. 1866. 16pp. Stitched. Scattered foxing, margins of title and least leaf soiled. About Good+. Williams prints two of Henry Carey's works advocating protectionism, prefacing them with his own brief remarks about the evil "effect of depending upon a foreign market for the breadstuffs we produce." Carey protests importing foods from Europe, asking rhetorically, "Why are we now giving gold for wheat?" He urges following the example of France, which now exports wheat as the result of "a system of long continued, steady and thoroughly effective protection."
