From the intro: "THE distinguished political economists, English and foreign, who, in The Financial Review of Reviews, have taken part in the discussion of the question of the "Geographical Distribution of Capital" have, with the single exception perhaps of Mr. Hobson, been adherents of the Old Political Economy of the Schools, and have taken not only their method of approach but the point of view which they have brought with them to the discussion, from its distinctive and peculiar teachings. It is perhaps hardly necessary for me to say here that all the fundamental principles and tenets of this Old Economy of Adam Smith and Stuart Mill have Free Trade as their logical sequence and corollary; or, to repeat what I have so often had occasion to point out elsewhere, that they all end in the belief that whatever benefits trade in any one country necessarily benefits it in each and every other with which that country has international business dealings. Now, this latter proposition I venture to unhesitatingly deny, and to affirm, on the contrary, that under a universal Free Trade between nations it will only the more certainly be found that an increase of wealth founded on the supremacy of a particular trade in any one country is sure to be followed by a corresponding decline in the same trade in all those other countries which up to then had, by natural or artificial Protection, become rich and powerful by its exercise."show more
