Rise of Free Trade (Critical Concepts in the History of Economics) (Hardcover), by
Schonhardt-Bail. Why was Britain the first country to opt for unilateral free trade 150
years ago? On 16 May 1846, the House of Commons voted to abolish tariff protection for
agriculture - the famous "repeal of the Corn Laws". Britain then adhered to her
free trade policy despite both her relative economic decline and the protectionist
policies of her leading trade rivals, the USA and Germany. This four volume set examines
and explains the contentious issues surrounding the policy shift to free trade and the
subsequent persistence of that policy. This set provides a comprehensive collection of
articles including previously unpublished material on nineteenth century British trade
policy and a comprehensive introduction by the editor putting the material into context. Information.
