Henry Clay's American System

Matthew Zamboni


Support Clay's American system, there are three manin benefits.

1. A tariff to protect and promote American industry.

2. The preservation of the national bank and to stablize the currency in the U.S.

3. And money for roads, canals, and improvements to devolop profitable markets for agriculture.

Main points

This system would establish a protective tariff, meaning there would be a tax on imported goods, thus helping American businesses do better than foreign buisnesses. Not only that would devoloping a single currency makes trade a lot easier, and will translate to helping the countrys infrastructure. Such as making better roads, and better transportation sytems. One of the most important improvements would be the buliding of the Cumberland road.
