The American System

A Proposal by Henry Clay

Main Economic Points

  • Larger National Bank
  • High Tariffs
  • Use those tariffs to create main roads and canals

People who support my plan

  • John C. Calhoun - Supports because of high tariffs, and the nationalist feel of the South financially supporting North.
  • John Quincy Adams - Supports because he wants to modernize America's economy.
  • Alexander Hamilton - Supports because of the revenue the US could receive following the American System.
