The American System

Henry Clay 1824

Parts of The American System

The system that I am proposing will consist of three main parts. These parts will be a tariff, a national bank, and federal subsidies for roads and other ways of transportation. The national bank will provide easy and abundant credit. The tariff will essentially will cause eastern manufactoring to flourish. Lastly, the new ways of transportation will knit the country together economically and politically through the stream of manufactored goods.
