Abstract: 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.
