Topic: Tariff of 1832


  
  Tariff of 1842 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Tariff of 1842, or Black Tariff as it became known, was a protectionist tariff schedule adopted in the United States to reverse the effects of the Compromise Tariff of 1833.
The Compromise Tariff contained a provision that successively lowered the tariff rates from their level under the Tariff of 1832 over a period of ten years until the majority of dutiable goods were to be taxed at 20%.
The Black Tariff was signed into law somewhat reluctantly by President John Tyler following a year of disputes with the Whig leaders in Congress over the restoration of national banking and the government's land disbursement policies.

 Nullification Crisis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
South Carolina dealt with the tariff by adopting the Ordinance of Nullification, which declared both the tariffs of 1828 and 1832 null and void within state borders.
Clay's tariff bill — quickly approved in 1833 — specified that all duties in excess of 20 percent of the value of the goods imported were to be reduced by easy stages, so that by 1842, the duties on all articles would reach the level of the moderate Tariff of 1816.
This tariff is known as both the Tariff of 1833 and the Compromise Tariff.

 Tariff of 1833 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Tariff of 1833, also known as the Compromise Tariff, was proposed by Henry Clay and John C. Calhoun as a resolution to the Nullification Crisis.
It was adopted to gradually reduce the rates after southerners objected to the protectionism found in the Tariff of 1832 and the 1828 Tariff of Abominations, which had given cause to South Carolina to threaten secession from the Union.
The compromise reductions lasted only two months in their final stage before protectionism was reinstated by the Black Tariff of 1842.

 Taussig, Essay on Tariffs from the Encyclopedia Britannica: Library of Economics and Liberty
Where tariff duties are imposed solely for revenue, an equivalent excise tax is imposed within the country, so as to put the domestic producer precisely on the footing of his foreign competitor; and tariffs so maintained are in complete conformity with the principle of free trade.
The tariff of 1828 was affected by some political manipulation, which caused it to contain objectionable provisions, and to be dubbed "the tariff of abominations." But the so-called abominations were removed in 1832, when the protective system was deliberately and carefully rearranged.
Efforts were made also to reduce the tariff duties, but these naturally came last: they met with strong opposition, and in the end they were almost completely frustrated, thus leaving as the basis of the tariff the rates which had been levied in the course of the war.
