The theory that a nation may gain by the compulsory use
of native manufactures is directly opposed to the teachings of
Adam Smith, and to those of the most distinguished economists
throughout Europe. There are, however, some writers of no small
reputation who have maintained this theory. Of these, two Irishmen
have been frequently referred to in recent publications as
authorities in its favour. The writers to whom I refer are Bishop
Berkeley and Mr. Butt; and I propose, in this paper, first, to examine
the general economic views which they have put forward, so
as to ascertain what weight is to be attached to their authority;
and, secondly, to notice some of the particular arguments adduced
in support of the theory.
