American System

Henry Clay

WHY OUR COUNTRY NEEDS THIS!

The United States of America is in need of a strong central government, and my plan is to do so and make many internal improvements as a result of this.

WHAT THIS PLAN EMBODIES

This plan is beneficial because...

-the focus of mercantilism will bring in revenue for our federal government.

-Emphasis on the national bank and trade tariffs will support the plan for internal improvements. These improvements will include canals and roads that can open up trade in the North.

-The tariffs will also support our federal revenue, which in turn will make the country more financially stable.

-rooted deeply in the "American Schools" ideal

-The trade tariffs on European can increase the American trade and commerce and raise the profits!
