      The biggest hole in the high-tariff fable is the fact that it was not the protected industries that led America’s economic surge in the late 19th century. According to Douglas Irwin of Dartmouth College, the sectors with the fastest productivity growth were services such as transportation, distribution, utilities, and communications as well.   Despite the belief that is still common today that British exhortation opened the doors to European free trade in the late 19th century, it was the Treaty of Commerce, promoted by the Napoleon III and concluded between Britain and France, that really ushered in the age of nineteenth century “globalization”.

    According to Eric Foner, the federal government contributed to the dynamic and expansive growth of the American economy in the late 19th century by _____. a. granting land to railroads, removing Indians from desirable lands in the West, and enacting high tariffs b. enacting federal child labor laws, minimum wage laws, and maximum power laws.   A lot of people will say, you know, we grew very rapidly in the late 19th century.

There is also a smaller literature on the “19th century growth-tariff paradox” associated with the historian Paul argued informally that European countries with higher tariffs grew faster in the half century before the Great War. Bairoch’s rough eyeball correlation was confirmed econometrically by O’Rourke for a sample of 10 rich countries (Australia, Canada, Denmark.

Early 19th Century Overview: In light of the war ofthe United States, mostly under the guidance of Henry Clay, began to develop economically through the use of tariffs. Unlike with the presidency of Jefferson, the 6th and 7th presidents didn't have any pressing problem with trading with foreign countries, though they did desire to ensure.

A few days ago, Pseudoerasmus published a blog piece on Bairoch’s argument that in the 19th century, the countries that had high tariffs also had fast growth.

It is a good piece that summarizes the litterature very well. However, there are some points that Pseudoerasmus eschews that are crucial to assessing the proper role of tariffs on growth.

Smaller government, in turn, meant less intrusion into the economy. The resulting freedom of entrepreneurs and consumers, and lower likelihood of government handouts (and bailouts!) to favored interest groups, promoted healthy economic growth.

More generally, except for high tariffs, the U.S. economy of the nineteenth century was relatively free. Get this from a library.
