About this product
- DescriptionMathew Carey was one of the most popular and influential ecomic writers of his day, but his work has been largely overlooked by modern writers, who tend to focus on more scholarly writers or on precursors to contemporary classical ecomics. Carey was a self-taught printer and publisher who rejected Adam Smith, led the early fight for protective tariffs, and wrote hundreds of newspaper articles to convince the public of the need to protect American manufacturers. The New Olive Branch is Carey's most important, accessible, and sustained elaboration of his political-ecomic ideas, and is accompanied in this volume by portions of his Addresses of the Philadelphia Society for the Promotion of National Industry (1822), which offer further insight into his rejection of classical ecomics.
