Tariff Policies IV--Socialist Party

May 1922
Congressional Digest;May22, Vol. 1 Issue 8, p9
U.S. Socialists favor the ultimate establishment of free trade while recognizing that it may be advisable to protect an industry in its early stage against destructive foreign competition. A tariff on imports is an evil. It is impossible to prohibit the importation of goods without arousing hostility and a desire for retribution on the part of the exporting nation. Every difficulty placed in the way of international commerce becomes an act of hostility. No one will contend that the people of the U.S., as a whole, would benefit by the reestablishment of tariffs among the various states.
